At the Gladstone, we believe buying local, seasonal and championing and facilitating opportunities for artists, entrepreneurs and micro producers is necessary to support our local environment and our local economy. Our monthly marketplace is connected to our cultural programming strategy. And one of the ways that we strive to grow our community of creatives and innovators and connect them to each other and to our guests. Each GH Marketplace is themed and collaboratively created working with independent curators or in partnership with cultural and community groups.
