Biz Kidz Market Day at the Fishers Farmers’ Market gives young entrepreneurs ages 5 through 17 the opportunity to showcase their entrepreneurial skills by running their own business for a day!
This July, over 35 children sold their handmade, hand-grown, hand-crafted, or hand-produced at the Fishers Farmers' Market. The application period for 2019 Biz Kidz will open next summer.
Homemade food products must adhere to the Indiana State Department of Health requirements for Home Based Vendors (HBVs). Products purchased from or made by a third-party source will NOT be permitted.
As Market vendors for the day, kids will practice basic skills of product development, marketing, sales, and customer service. Biz Kidz vendors are responsible for providing all necessary booth equipment (tent, tables, chairs etc.); booth spaces are 10’ x 10’. With assistance from an adult, kids should develop a business storefront and signage for their booth space, label and price their products legibly, and create simple but attractive product displays.
Booths must be staffed at all times and adult supervision is required. Biz Kidz are responsible for setting up and cleaning up their own booth space. Please review the Biz Kidz Vendor Guidelines for complete booth set-up and product selling information.
