PROVO, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Utahns love farmers markets and today there was one at Provo High School with a twist. Children are running the market.
The market is aimed at teaching kids, 4 through 15, business skills. They sold handmade items, everything from gadgets and gizmos to lollipops and ice cream. The only requirement was that the kids do all the selling.
Chris Polle is a young entrepreneur. He told us, “I’m selling fidget spinners. So, mine have a little bit more variety than other people. I’m selling Captain America, and people are buy those since new movie’s coming out.”
These kids had a great time promoting their products and nurturing their inner entrepreneurial spirit. They’ll be holding similar events June 17th at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi and July 8th at Noah’s in South Jordan. Combined they are expected to draw more than a thousand people.
