  • 1967 – Following an electrical fire in 1966, many vendors previously occupying the Gratiot Central Market retired.  Ronnie and Rosemary Bedway, both having grown up working in the grocery industry, jumped at the opportunity to open shop in the newly rebuilt market. With only a butcher block and knife in their possession, the young entrepreneurs relied upon the goodwill of suppliers and the help of family members to open on October 31st, 1967.
