The Market at 7th Street
The Market at 7th Street is a bustling urban food destination in the heart of Charlotte's Center City! The Market's mission is to celebrate the food culture of the Carolinas and promote local and regional farmers, food artisans and entrepreneurs. The Market provides high quality, fresh and affordable food, as well as local products, seven days a week. We are at the base of the 7th Street Station parking deck, between 6th and 7th streets and adjacent to the Lynx Blue Line's 7th Street stop. Parking is validated for the first 90 minutes with a purchase from a Market business.
Cool, smallish venue with a collection of good local shops. Mostly food. Everything looked, smelled, and tasted great. We enjoyed our lunch visit here.
This is smaller market but packed with many fine shops, mostly eateries ! All indoor and enough dining tables in the middle of the market. One gets a homely feeling if you get inside. Car parking is metered street parking on weekdays or paid park houses nearby. This is next to the street car stop !
Most of the places were closed but hopefully the waffle place will be open when you go. If it is you absolutely must get a waffle from there, they are amazing! Savory or sweet you won't regret it at all! So good! The waffle dough is a little sweet, so even if you ask for a savory one you will have a sweet and savory experience. I'm not a savory/sweet combo person but I enjoyed it regardless, so don't let that turn you away. Really they have no business being that good, lol.
To think of all the times I would pass by and I never went in to this place. There are a bunch of little restaurants, a wine shop, plus all the other places I passed by. I enjoyed the pictures and pizza, brought some fried seafood for my mother and it disappeared. There is a nifty little popcorn place there. I had to slow my child down from trying to make a bag of chicken flavored popcorn vanish in one sitting. One area, three different places, all five star dishes. You just have to go there!!
What a cool place to check out! The food options are fabulous. Great spot to support local businesses.
