Our Mission

The mission of the Kids Market is to provide kids ages 8 to 17 with a safe and supportive place to practice being entrepreneurs.  Kids are encouraged to explore any aspect of creativity that they enjoy from playing music, creating art, baking, and just about anything they can think of that can be sold or displayed at a market.

Participants learn about punctuality, work ethic and market shifts in a safe environment where parents are encouraged to be hands-off as much as possible so their kids can be in control of their own kid-business.

Become a Kid Vendor

Kid vendors must be between the ages of 8 and 17 and can offer a variety of products and services at the Local Tampa Kids Market. All ideas are encouraged and we will try our best to accommodate them. Kids can work together as a school group, scouts, a local fundraiser, with friends, siblings, or alone. To get involved, please fill out the Kid Vendor Application. Continue reading “Become a Kid Vendor”

Why Entrepreneurship for Kids?

“Entrepreneurship education benefits students from all socioeconomic backgrounds because it teaches kids to think outside the box and nurtures unconventional talents and skills. Furthermore, it creates opportunity, ensures social justice, instills confidence and stimulates the economy.”
