Taylor's Heritage Square Farmers Market is an open-air marketplace that brings fresh, locally sourced produce and goods into downtown Taylor. Located under the pavilion in Heritage Square Park, the market is home to a variety of vendors from Williamson & surrounding counties.
HSFM was established in August of 2019 as a partnership between the City of Taylor’s Main Street Program and the vendors. The market is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors whose goal is to strengthen our local food system and encourage local small businesses by providing a market space dedicated to building and nurturing community.
The Kidpreneur Program is one of our most treasured initiatives. We believe entrepreneurial skills are a critical component to navigating a fluctuating economy and that entrepreneurship experiences can improve young minds and impart skills that can be translated into any career. With economists predicting that the jobs of tomorrow don’t even exist today, entrepreneurial skills are valuable life skills. We are excited to partner with your young entrepreneur by providing a free space in our vendor community where they can set up shop and experience the joys (and challenges) of running their own business.
HSFM KidPreneurs are young entrepreneurs 17 or under who have created their own business selling products they make, grow, or produce on their own. KidPreneurs must bring their own tables, chairs, products and materials informing customers about what they have on offer (signs, price lists, etc.). An adult must be present with the KidPreneur at all times and KidPreneurs and their guardian are expected to follow market guidelines outlined in the KidPreneur Rules & Regulations (linked below) to include staying at the market for the full four hours and submitting their sales data totals to the market manager.
