I do like 7th street as it is a convenient place for lunch, but you will honestly pay a premium at some of the shops there. For the concept of having retail space on the ground floor of a parking deck next to the light rail is great sustainable land-use for activating the space... However, (and this can be said for a lot of places in Charlotte) the 5 pm closing times are a pain. Plus the fact they will randomly rent out the whole floor for a night randomly really throws me off from going there more. Still a great place to house some pretty cool shops.
Neat little market! It is small so don't expect it to be a way to just waste time. I did recommend going though.
This place kind of missed the mark for me a bit. I like when food halls have some type of vibe to them. I felt the decor and furniture just werent too up to date and didnt give a fun vibe to the place.
We stumbled on this gem in downtown Charlotte after the march on October 2. It is essentially a food court, but it is not your every day food court. Everything from col pressed juices to pizza and sandwiches are created with LOCALLY sourced products. We shared an absolutely delicious cheeseboard with 3 cheeses crafted in NC, Kentucky, and Tennessee! It also had tasty almonds and pickled veggies on the board. The bread was just right too. It was def hustling and bustling but not so crowded you couldn't enjoy your meal. I also enjoyed and shared a fantastic cabarnet that we had with our snack. A very fun spot!
This is my favorite place in all of Charlotte. I like to describe it as a little hipstery spot. They got a bunch of different food types. My two favorite are the crepes and the fruit bowls. In the back you can even find little venders stalls. If you have free time, I would 100% recommend going. Oh, they also sell really good honeys
