Now Serving Uptown Charlotte: 7th Public Street Market

Last Friday, I took a walk with another local foodie to the new 7th Street Public Market. Located in the old Reid's location across from 7th Street Station, this consolidation of many small businesses opened in early December. The market's mission is to bring fresh, regional food to the city center and help quench the "food desert" that many urbanites find themselves in.

On Friday at lunch, the following vendors were alive and kicking at the market:
Other vendors include:
The produce section of the market is dubbed The Farm Stand and is a collaboration with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. On Friday, they had a wide selection of mid-Winter produce including butternut squash, apples, greens like bok choi and kale, some delicious carrots and turnips. They also had local products including milk, jams and other canned items, butter, salsa, hummus, eggs and lots more. 

All in all, this is a very exciting development for those that work and live in Uptown!
