ATTENTION Youth ages 12 and under!
To encourage entrepreneurship in our local youth we will allow 1 lemonade (or hot drinks) stand per week at the Farmers’ Market. In the spirit of a true business ownership reserve your stand for 50 cents (due on the day of the event), make a product of your favorite lemonade drink, and market your lemonade by selling it at your own stand from 10:00 am to 12:30pm or 8:30am to 12:30pm on Saturdays.
The market will provide a Stand with board for signage. Youth are responsible for their own booth including addition table if desired, chair, additional signage or stand décor if desired just like all our market vendors, so they can truly experience creating a farm stand. A canopy is available from the market board. If youth bring their own canopy for safety also bring weights to secure to the legs and hold it in place. This stand for the sale of lemonade drinks only (no food or craft items). Lemonade can be homemade or a mix.
Completing the form (include a contact number) and mailing to PO Box 650, Spencer, IN 47460 or bring to the market and giving it to our Market Manager. Once we have the form our Market Manager will contact to schedule your stand date.
Have Fun With It
The Lemonade Farm Stand Day is created to encourage our youth in the responsibilities of a farm stand and the fun marketing a product of their own. In the spirit of a true business ownership reserve your stand for 50 cents (due on the day of the event), make a product of your favorite lemonade or hot drink, and market your drink by selling it at your own stand. The Owen County Farmers’ Market is excited to host this event and hope it will become an annual market tradition. Larry Fair has created and donated a stand for the youth to use. Youth are responsible for their own chair, lemonade items (cups, ice, lemonade) and canopy is optional.
