Morning at the 7th Street Market


One of the sweet spots in Charlotte, NC

It is a place filled with a food court that serves mainly local grown ingredients. The 7th Street Public Market stands on the principles of sustainability and truly reflects the City of Charlotte’s direction to be a “Green City”. Live in Charlotte? Visiting? This place is a must see. There is also a small local farmers market as well as a variety of little shops that sell locally grown and made products.

Here is their mission and they truly are accomplishing it:

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.

This marketplace:

  • 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.
 

I was there for one of my green groups I am active in, but while I was there I had to stop at my favorite juice bar, Viva Raw.

Do you have any sustainable sweet spots where you live that you LOVE?
