Glenrose market grows

Thu., July 4, 2013

Last summer’s success leads to three days this year

A group in the Glenrose neighborhood is building on last year’s summer market success by hosting three market days this summer: July 9, Aug. 13 and Sept. 10.

Heidi Lasher, who’s lived in Glenrose for three years, is one of the market coordinators.

“We had one market last year, in August, and it just went really well so we are expanding this year,” Lasher said.

The market will be in the grassy area by the Little Yellow Schoolhouse at the intersection of 37th Avenue and Fancher Road.

Among the vendors will be Rocky Ridge Ranch, Bouzie’s Bakery, Full Bushel Farms and Chattaroy Cheese.

The market’s focus is local food and produce, as well as locally made products and crafts.

The July market is full but Lasher said there may be some open vendor spots in August and September.

Lasher said Glenrose used to be “the breadbasket of Spokane” and although the area is now mostly developed, wheat fields can still be found there. She’s hoping the market will be as successful this summer as it was last.

“This is a community event more so than just a shopping event,” Lasher said.
