Apply for Kid's Marketplace 2024

Last year Kid's Marketplace was a blast and we raised over $10,000 benefiting the kids at the Red Door Family Shelter in Leslieville. So we are doing it again this year on: Saturday June 1st, 2024 from 11:30AM-2PM

The purpose of this event is to: - Raise funds for those in need in our community through our biannual initiatives - Allow youth in our community to exercise their entrepreneurial skills, create an opportunity to sell and earn revenue and learn about philanthropy by giving back. 

How do I take part in the marketplace?  

There are 3 steps...

Part 1: Come up with something to sell! Some ideas include: baked goods, tie dye items, painted beach rocks, scrunchies, toys, plants, lemonade, stickers. We will let you know if someone else already has signed up for that idea, if not, it's yours! Get creative! Think of a business name and make a sign for it on a 8.5"x11" white paper & bring it with you on the day of the event (we will tape this to your table). You will have approximately a 3'x3' space to displace your products. Check out our video from last years Kid's Market for some inspiration for your business.

Choose your team (it can be your family, or friends...up to 6 people/team). Email the above information to:  Subject: Marketplace submission  

Part 2: The Kid2Kid team will review your submission and let you know if you have been accepted. Please note you may be asked to revise your idea if another team is already doing what you have requested. Pitches are first come, first served.

Upon approval there is a $15 fee/team for participating, you can e-transfer this to our email address. 50 per cent of the funds you raise will go to Kid2Kid while the remaining is for your team.

Tell your family & friends to save the date, so they can come out and support the event.

Part 3: Show up between 10:45AM-11:00AM to set up your table on the day of the marketplace. The market opens at 11:30AM sharp. Be sure to bring some water, snacks and change to give to customers when needed. We provide chairs and tables. The marketplace ends at 2PM. You have until 2:30PM to pack up your goods, count your cash and sign out with a Kid2Kid representative.  

Space is limited and once we have reached our capacity, we cannot accept any more applications.  

Please note: Anyone under the age of 16 must have a guardian’s signature to participate in the marketplace. Those under 8 years of age must be accompanied by someone over 12 years of age. Those under 5 years of age must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Kid2Kid is not responsible for theft, lost items or the success of the sale.  

If you have any questions, please email us at  Thank you for your interest in helping others and improving your entrepreneurial skills.
