MARYVILLE, Mo. — The third annual Nodaway County Children's Business Fair was held Saturday morning at Beal Park.
The fair was originally scheduled for March, but was postponed and relocated to the park from the public library due to COVID-19.
Children of all ages presented their wares underneath the shelters at the park, selling a wide variety of products.
For the fair, child entrepreneurs create a product or service, calculate a profit margin by considering costs and pricing, develop a brand, build a marketing strategy and then open for customers for the one-day marketplace. Children are responsible for the setup, sales and interacting with customers.
The Greater Maryville Chamber of Commerce also held ribbon cuttings for each business.
