Kid Makers Market


Kids learn, adapt, and innovate through the creative process. Join us at the Lenexa Public Market as we support the most creative endeavors of the next generation at our Kid Makers Markets. Shop for a variety of goods made by local youth in our community. 

Interested in being a vendor? We're inviting young makers under the age of 18 to apply to participate. This is a unique opportunity for young people to learn about entrepreneurship while promoting and selling their goods. Participants must be a senior in high school or younger and must use skills and/or tools to produce their product.

Applications for the summer event are now closed.
Applications for the holiday market open Sept. 2-Oct. 21.

Upcoming Kid Makers Markets

 Public Market partners with former kid maker vendors

In 2021, we collaborated with Aidan Hall and Lila and Avery O’Hara to create shirts and totes with a cheerful new design evocative of the Market’s diverse cuisine and engaging atmosphere. Most recently, in February 2024, our staff worked with Livia V. for a custom wood cover for the stovetop in The Kitchen.
