Farmers market will host ‘Kids’ Market’
Children will get a chance to sell baked goods and other products at Hurkamp Park on June 1 during the Fredericksburg Farmers Market’s first-ever “Kids’ Market.”
Kids ages 8-15 are encouraged to submit an application to be a vendor for the day; the applications can be found online here. Children chosen to be vendors can sell things like homegrown vegetables and flowers, baked goods or eggs. What they can’t do is pick up boxes of cookies from a store and sell those.
“We’re really encouraging kids to think outside the box. Team up with your brother or sister, a neighbor or friend, and bring a great, homemade product to the market,” Market Manager Gayle Price said in a statement on the market’s website.
Space is limited, and the application deadline is April 15.
