Daytona Beach’s farmer’s market will let kids run their own business

DAYTONA BEACH — Do you think your child has the ability to one day invent a product worth patenting, or open a business that becomes a Fortune 500 company?

Even if your little one just likes to sell Kool-Aid and homemade cookies on the front lawn, there’s an opportunity for them this weekend to get a taste of what it’s like to run their own business.

The Downtown Daytona Beach Children’s Business Fair will allow kids to showcase their entrepreneurial genius for a day. From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, they can claim a spot at the weekly Downtown Farmers’ Market on Magnolia Avenue just west of Beach Street.

The first annual fair for pint-sized businesspeople is open to anyone age 5-15 who wants to take part.

Children can create a product or service, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy, and then open for customers at the one-day marketplace. The children and their families are responsible for the setup, sales and interaction with customers.
