The 7th Street Public Market provides high-quality, fresh, and affordable food from local farms and regional purveyors. It is the anchor of a dynamic market district that serves as an authentic community gathering place. It celebrates and promotes the diverse regional food culture of the Carolinas, supports local and regional farmers and food artisans as well as the regional network of markets, serves as an incubator for food-related businesses, and helps mitigate food deserts in surrounding neighborhoods addressing access, health and food education and costs.

“We are thrilled about all the people coming together to open this Market,” says Christy Shi, Executive Director of 7th Street Public Market. “It has such a strong mission that will do so much good for the Charlotte community and its rural neighbors. We are so excited about the prospect of moving out of the construction phase and into celebrating and supporting local producers and food artisans.”
