Our local business popup this week is the Pop Stand with their delicious handmade popsicles! Rotating vendors are Bata Maple Syrup and Beef, and Left Field Brewery.
This week at the market we’ve got a couple of really fun Kidpreneurs: Grow will be selling bookmarks, candles, bath salts and candy skewers and Happy Beaders will be selling jewelry. Our kidpreneurs pay a nominal fee to be at the market, and then share their profits with a charity of their choice. This summer we’ve been treated to all kinds of amazing kid-made treats and treasures! DECA is very grateful for the work of local author and financial literacy advocate Clifton Corbin for his organizing of the Kidpreneur program at the market.
The Space will be in the kids’ tent with some fun activities. They are currently registering for fall classes — they offer ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap, lyrical, contemporary, musical theatre, acting, singing, and creative movement classes for children, teens, and adults. Fall classes start in September. You can find The Space here:
Bike Day at the Market
Next Thursday, August 31, DECA and 32 Spokes are excited to present Bike Day at the Market! Kids and grownups can bring their bikes and helmets for expert checks, make bike decorations and buttons, get glitter tattoos, and win prizes by doing a bike safety quiz. Prize sponsors are Carters’ Ice Cream, Silly Goose Kids, and Cyclepath.
