The Cromwell Farmers’ and Craft Market is inviting all the young entrepreneurs aged five to 17 years old to “set up shop” at the Young Entrepreneurs Market. The event will be held on Sunday 8 December. “This will be our first Young Entrepreneurs Market, expanding on our long-running kids’ craft market,” said Peter Brass, chairperson of the market.
He added, “We love hosting these special markets as they give kids the opportunity to try their hand at being business owners”. To fit into the ethos of the regular market, all items sold will need to either locally produced or hand-crafted. In addition to teaching children the art of producing products that the public would want to buy, the intention behind the idea of the market is to teach the fundamentals of marketing, sales, and budgeting for business. All young people who are interested in having a stall at the Young Entrepreneurs Market can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
