Kids Can Join the SouthCoast Open Air Market for FREE!
The Southcoast Open Air Market (SOAM) has a program made for kids called SOAM Kid Biz. Kid Biz is for young entrepreneurs, ages 7 – 18, who want to sell their goods at SOAM alongside regular vendors. The program is fully sponsored by SFCU. This allows for the business owned and operated by children to participate in the market for FREE!
There are a limited number of Kid Biz spots and the market does have a few spots left for Kids to join the 2023 season. If you know a creative kid who would love to sell his or her creations, you can click HERE for a SOAM Kid Biz application.
