I would like to remind everyone about the Wednesday Kids’ Market that happens in Ashfield Center every Wednesday in the Summer from 4-6pm in the parking lot of the Ashfield Hardware Store. Kids can have a venue to sell their creations. Can be as simple as lemonade and popcorn, picked flowers, their favorite craft, a budding talent or even a service – Face Painting? Fortune Telling … It is a fun weekly event!

Best of all there is no fee and no long term commitment. Come every Wednesday or just once. Let the kids run their own businesses for a few hours and watch them buy, trade and barter from each other.

You’ll have to provide a little table for your childrens wares and a chair if they’d like to sit down.

Hope you’ll join the market. We love it and are so grateful that Nancy and Laura (the fabulous owners of the Ashfield Hardware Store) will host this fun market again this summer.

    Looking forward to another great Kids Market season this summer in Ashfield! Big thank you to the ladies at the Ashfield Hardware store for putting this on in their parking lot every year. The kids love it and it’s a great learning opportunity for them!

    Age of sellers varies week to week. I would say 5-12 depending on who shows up. Over the years there are definately been some teens and younger children too.

    Everyone is welcome! So start spreading the word…..
