As a B-Corporation, the Gladstone takes pride in supporting other local and sustainable businesses. By supporting and facilitating opportunities for artists and entrepreneurs who put time, care and thought into their work, we believe it enhances our neighbourhood and our local economy.
GH Marketplace is a unique market that puts vendors at the forefront. With a focus on showcasing independent and emerging artists, entrepreneurs, and social enterprises, the brand shines a spotlight on innovators, movers, and shakers. Our monthly marketplace is connected to our cultural programming strategy; it is one of the many ways that we aim to grow our community of creatives and innovators while connecting them to each other and to our guests.
Establishing relationships with partners who also foster the same ideas in helping our local community flourish is very important to us. Wonder Märkit is a market series that is held in our Ballroom, focusing on a curated selection of Toronto’s most noteworthy artisans.
