As the sun sets on the work week, enjoy a sophisticated evening of open-air shopping, tasting and entertainment in Charlotte’s South End neighborhood. Nebel’s Alley Night Market, an evening event showcasing local and regional food, drinks and goods, begins September 6, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Set along Nebel Alley and Tompkins Alley in the Design District, the night market will be held the first Friday of the month. More than 30 pop-up stores will line the alleys featuring handmade leather pieces, vintage accessories, clothing, home décor and local kombucha. Enjoy Tex-Mex at nearby Superica or artisan ice cream from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, then stroll the market and listen to live jazz. Black and white movies on the brick facades will add to the festive atmosphere.
“Nebel’s Alley Night Market is the type of experience you can only find in South End,” said Megan Liddle Gude, Director of Historic South End. “Where else can you visit an art gallery on opening night, walk to dinner, and stroll through a charming lantern-lit market along the way? I can’t wait to see how the Night Market adds to the magic of the First Friday Gallery Crawl and South End’s vibrant retail scene.”
Nebel’s Alley Night Market will return on Friday, September 6, and Friday, November 1.
