Takes place each Saturday behind Atherton Mall off of South Boulevard. It parallels the rail trail. When I tell you it’s beautiful out there. You’ll feel like you’re in a Hallmark movie. The vendors sell unique crafts and treats. It’s child and pet friendly. During the holidays, they block off the street,and add a DJ and more vendors. The market takes up several blocks.
Camp North End
Happens each Wednesday. The vendors are stationed near the food court at the same space the Mad Mile Run Club meets on Tuesdays. There aren’t quite as many vendors as South End, but there are still great finds. I especially love the juice guy! Plus, it’s in the afternoon (around 4pm), so you can grab food and peruse. It’s a great way to spend the afternoon.
This one also takes place on Saturday morning and has a decent amount of vendors. It’s in the parking lot near a church off of South Boulevard near the Nascar Museum. I love that there are tons of food vendors. You can grab a fresh cup of coffee and a pastry while you check out the other vendors. We always buy fresh produce and honey. They also have fresh meat and fish.The parking is free, which is great for Uptown.
Rosa Park’s Farmers Market
Runs June through September at the West Complex off of W. Trade St. near Uptown on Tuesdays from 3-7pm. It’s jammed packed with food demonstrations, giveaways, entertainment, and a plethora of vendors. They accept all forms of payment, including SNAP/EBT. Parking is across the street in the parking garage (Free).
Charlotte Regional Farmers Market
This is by far the largest farmer’s market in Charlotte (not including flea markets). There are four large stalls filled to the brim with multiple vendors. They have tons of produce, meat, flowers, etc. I’ve even seen a yellow watermelon. There are folks who sell homemade soap and body butters. The bonus, in the parking lot, there are food trucks. I’ve seen Jamaican food and a lady who makes mini-donuts. It’s packed each Saturday, but there’s tons of parking.
