Youth Market, time to bloom!

Do you have a young entrepreneur or a child loves to get their hands dirty? The Haymarket Farm Market is looking for their next big farm star. We are working to open a Youth Market, space is provided for free, but you will need to fill out an application and follow a few rules. Some ideas for youth vendors include fruits or veggies grown by the student, flower arrangments, plant or herb seedlings are always a great idea or even eggs collected by the students. Some other young entrepreneurs may choose to feature a recycle or composting product, in conjunction with a scout, community or homeschool project. They may also choose to sell products besides fruits and vegetables at their market, which can generate a small amount of capital. Some items could include cookbooks, bookmarks or using pressed flowers, wreaths with herbs and dried flowers, and seed packets with garden-collected seeds.  With the Youth Market, we must adhere to hand-made only products and avoid selling prepared food, which needs to be certified by the health department. The Youth Market will open on September 1st, during the existing market, from 4:00-6:00. Come and sell your wares, your pickings or your popsicles. Look for details coming soon.
