R5 best of the best


Since 1997, Charlotte magazine has dedicated its May issue to the BEST OF THE BEST. We call it The BOBS, and we recognize the city's finest in food and drink, nightlife, entertainment, shopping, mind and body, and more- hundreds of winners in all. And then we throw a huge party! The event offers all of Charlotte a chance to sample the best food and drink as well as mingle with all of the BOB winners. It has become one of the most anticipated parties in the city.

7th Street Public Market

  • Kids & Family

Essential Information

224 E. Seventh St.
Charlotte, NC

The fresh-from-the-orchard apples are in baskets on the floor. The cookies and cupcakes and cake pops and bon-bons (and cronuts, if you’re into that sort of thing) are in glass cases sometimes dotted with tiny handprints. Cheese? Cheddar, manchego, local goat’s milk, and 57 more are all displayed at the perfect height for a curious six-year-old to inspect. Samples abound. A train—a train, people!—runs right outside the giant windows. The children’s theater and library are in shouting distance. First and Fourth Ward families know the allure of 7th Street Public Market. Now you do, too.
