Young Enterprise Students prepare to sell their products and services at Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market
This weekend's Hawke's Bay Farmer's Market will be brimming with students from the region's school's selling the products they have spent most of the year designing and creating.
As part of the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES), senior secondary students set up and run their own small enterprise, supported by teachers, schools, and local organisations including a YES Regional Coordinator from the HB Chamber of Commerce, a business mentor, and their local business community.
Since 2001, the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’ Market (HBFM) has enabled YES teams to bring their innovative product offering to market.
HBFM Market Manager, Emma Glover says they really enjoy being able to host this fantastic event, and to be able to support the Young Enterprise Scheme students.
"The products and services on offer are increasing in quality each year, so we look forward to seeing what this year’s students have in store for us," she says.
Lisa Uncles, interim YES Regional Coordinator says it offers students an authentic opportunity to create their product, design a stall and come up with a plan to sell their products and services to real customers
"There is a lot of work involved in running a successful stall, they are incredibly proud when they make their first sale or even better, sell out."
The YES Market Day will be held at Hawke’s Bay Farmers Market at Tomoana Showgrounds on Sunday, August 15.
