Are you a kid or teen with a great business idea?

NORMAN — Want to be a young entrepreneur?

As the Norman Farm Market prepares for its 31st season opening on April 3, a program is promoting business startups by children and teens.

Loveworks Leadership, a Norman-based youth leadership and entrepreneurship organization responsible for the development of kid-run businesses such as Real Kitchen ( and Wrist World (, is collaborating with the market to implement the initiative. The program will harness the natural entrepreneurial abilities of youngsters and teens and teach them the skills needed to sell a product to the public.

Anyone ages 8-15 who makes a sellable product is encouraged to apply by Feb. 26. While applicants gain the experience of interviewing and selling products, the program will broaden the scope of products available through Loveworks at the Norman Farm Market.

Accepted participants will have a booth at the Norman Farm Market for a minimum of two market days, where they will have the opportunity to sell their products to the public while learning business skills.
