APPLETON (WLUK) -- The Downtown Appleton Farm Market hosted a "Kid's Market" Saturday.

The market is held indoors in the City Center.

A dozen spaces were reserved for children to sell some of their own handcrafted objects and artwork.

Some children who participated are musicians and used their spaces to perform.

Organizers say it's important to teach entrepreneurial skills at an early age.

"To see what it's like to be a vendor, to do customer service, interaction with people, little bit of math skills and just having fun being a part of this whole event," said Djuanna Hugdahl, event coordinator.

The indoor farm market is held every Saturday starting at 9 in the morning.

It hosts up to 50 vendors selling fresh produce, baked goods, specialty goods and handcrafted items.
