More than 30 children got up bright and early to set up their stalls at this week’s Mount Kids Market in Mount Maunganui.
The new markets, which began in April and run on the last Sunday of each month, offer customers a range of creative and low-priced items and there is only one rule: stall holders must be younger than 16 years old.
The idea for the markets came from Arataki Community Centre manager Matthew Strange, who as a child used to sell plums and feijoas on the side of the road.
“I thought it would be a really good opportunity for kids to fundraise, earn some pocket money and also learn a bit of small business – like how to lay out their table out and how to talk to people.”
