About Us

The Magic Valley Kid Market is a vendor market which allows children to unleash their creativity and dive right into the business world by creating a product and selling it to the public.

In 2019 a group of moms began discussing a children's business market in a thread on social media. To their dismay, they discovered that such an event did not exist in the Magic Valley area. And thus, the Magic Valley Kid Market was born. 

Since then, we have hosted markets for the last 3 years with over 100 children participating in 2019 and 2020, and almost 200 children participating in each of our two markets in 2021. 

At the end of 2021, we were approved as a non-profit organization and received an amazing grant from the Chobani Community Impact Fund to help us further our mission.

It is our mission to cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit within our children and to teach them how to be business leaders of the future. Many children have hopes and ideas of becoming future business owners, but there are few opportunities that allow them to actually implement their ideas before adulthood.

 Our goal is to help children be creative, experience customer service, develop marketing skills, learn business basics and practice money management. 

With feedback from our participants, we keep evolving to make our events better each year.

In 2022, the decision was made to expand our markets and to add other educational events such as finance and marketing classes, and presentations from local business owners. We hope you will join us in helping teach our children how to become successful entrepreneurs.

Whether your child participates in a booth, comes to a class, or you just decide to stop by and shop-we hope to see you soon!
