About 20 young entrepreneurs are hoping to make some cash and sell their handmade goods at the first Shellharbour City Youth Market on Wednesday.
The event at Shellharbour Civic Centre plaza will be held from 4pm to 8pm.
The market is a chance for talented 12 to 25 year olds to showcase their merchandise and talk to other young people.
Hair scrunchies, art, cakes, swimmers, bead bowls, jewellery, candles, surf board wax, photography, graphic design, charcoal drawings, succulents, handmade cards and more are available.
Shell Cove's Oceanna Rogers, 14, said was excited to promote her products, get involved with the community, talk to other young people and have some fun.
"I am hoping for lots of sales and I am sure the market will be fun," she said.
Oceanna makes surfboard wax and soy candles.
"I am a surfer and so I need wax," she said. "It is expensive so Dad thought we should make our own and start a business.
"We tried lots of different ingredients and then started to sell Shaka's Surf Wax. It uses paraffin wax and a couple of others that Dad keeps a secret from me.
"I tried soy wax but it didn't work too well so I started to make candles and I add scents to them. They are called Ocean Love Candles.
"Scents include coconut and mango, watermelon, pineapple, Hawaiian, vanilla caramel, lychee and peony and vanilla.
"I have learnt a lot since starting the business and I make the wax and candles around my surfing commitments.
"Making the products is fun and the feedback from customers makes me feel proud."
Another stallholder Mia Santos, aged 11 from Shellharbour, has made more than 300 scrunchies and Blackbutt's Chantelle Ivanisevic, 23, has her own graphic design and photography business.
There will also be live music from Alanah Keane, Emma Jones and Brittony May Music as well as Street Beatz Hip Hop and a roving fire twirler.
There will be other free activities, tie-dying and macramé key rings.
There will be woodfire, burgers, ice cream and coffee.
