The Wenatchee Farmers Market will have the second of their three kids markets on the 16th where kids under 14 can sell their wares that they’ve either grown or made.
Sue Gasbar said the kids really get into the various aspects of the event.
“The parts they enjoy, I think, are handling the money and their parents enjoy them making change and learning that part of the business. Some of the kids, the older ones especially, have made incredible signage for their booth. They’re already somewhat professional.”
Kids can learn how to value their work, dealing with customers and many other valuable aspects of running a business, or working in a job.
Gasbar said they don’t have the amount of grown product that she’d like, but the crafts that are made are fantastic.
“They make all kinds of things and it’s really fun and it’s very popular with our customers too. They love to go over and see what the kids are doing.”
The kids market runs from 9-12, and it’s not too late to sign up. If you are, or have a kid 14 years of age or younger who would like to be a part of the market, visit the Wenatchee Farmers Market website.
