Did you know our market is open year-round?
The Gladstone Farmers Market will add Saurday market hours this year to its winter market schedule, expanding opportunities for the market's independent vendors to offer their locally-grown and produced items for sale to consumers in the KC Metro area. Market organizers decided to add a Saturday mraket to the winter schedule this year following a successful winter farmers market season last year. "We have some dedicated customers who find it difficult to make our Wednesday afternoon markets." says Market President Joe Langeneckert. Vendors will offer a wide assortment of cool weather fresh produce, such as spinach, lettuce, herbs and other greens, as well as hydroponically-grown vegetables, eggs, home-raised Black Angus beef and pork. The market continues to carry jams, jellies and other canned goods, breads, cookies and select hand-made craft items.
SNAP/EBT payments can be accepted by market vendors, and the Double-up matching token program will continue through the winter market, contingent on program funding.
The Gladstone Winter Farmers Market is located at 601 NE 70th Street in downtown Gladstone (The Heights at Linden Square Apartments). The Winter Market takes place from November-April. Beginning in November the dates will be:
Wednesday 2:00-6:00 pm
