About the Gladstone Farmers Market
Gladstone Summer Market was created in the summer of 2010 by Jim and Missy Galardi. They were inspired by farmers markets and thought that a summer market with fresh produce and local vendors was just what Gladstone needed. So they got some produce and made it happen.
From these humble beginnings the Galardi’s put on a market every Saturday during summer for 2 years in the parking lot of Watts Heating and Cooling with local artists, produce, and live music. By the end of the second year the market had over 32 vendors! It had really started to pick up steam!
Believing that he was being transferred for work, Jim handed over the market to a new manager. Unfortunately that was the last year of the Gladstone Farmers Market.
Now Jim and Missy are back with a new twist on an old idea. Keep it simple and make it about the produce.
In June of 2015 look for the Galardis and their produce stand on the patio of Happyrock Coffee. Fresh produce every Saturday from the original vendor at the Gladstone Summer Market!
