7th Street Public Market 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.
