Fit Kids Playground wants to see kids living healthy and fun lives! Our partnership with Tampa Bay Markets has opened up our eyes to a new opportunity for kids in the Tampa Bay area. We see the potential for young entrepreneurs to find a sense of accomplishment in doing something they love to do. We are proud to help inspire kids to explore entrepreneurship and business with us as part of the new Hyde Park Village Kids Market! It’s a place for kids to try something new and it will give them a place to show off what they have learned. Where supporting local small businesses is why people come to shop, we know that supporting young entrepreneurs will fit right in.
The Hyde Park Village Kids Market will feature 10-15 kids vendors. The Kids Market will take place in the Courtyard Via Way by Downtown Dogs and Color Me Mine and will include 10-15 spaces for kids to sell products they make themselves. Examples of products that will be accepted for the Kids Market will include baked goods and hand crafts. These kids will sell items that they had a hand in making. We are open to kids of all ages. We want to make this a fun experience for everyone! By being a part of the Tampa Bay Markets Hyde Park Village Kids Market, the kids will be able to work on their selling skills as an actual vendor during the market. We want this to be a positive experience for the kids! It is meant to inspire kids and foster that entrepreneurial drive.
In November, we featured 2 extraordinary young ladies who not only wanted to be apart of the market, but wanted to use this opportunity to help others. Liberty’s Apple Juice Stand and Kat’s Kookies for Dogs both raised money to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Together, they were able to rise over $500! Never underestimate the power of someone who has heart!
So with that said, this post is a call to all young entrepreneurs in the Tampa Bay area that would like to be a part of something big! Please contact us via our contact page and we will send you the vendor form and get you all set!
And if you are not a kids vendor but have a service or product that might fit within our Kids Market, please let us know! We are excited to be launching such a promising event for kids to be a part of! Join us the first Sunday of each month from 10am-3pm in Hyde Park Village and don’t forget to stop by the Kids Market!
This event is sponsored and supported by the ladies of Working Women of Tampa Bay
