Gourmet Pop-Up: Southern Season

Courtesy

THE MOMENT the door opens, the aroma of coffee fills the air. Southern Season—the gourmet retailer based in Chapel Hill with additional locations in Richmond, Virginia, and Charleston, South Carolina—emphasizes a sensory shopping experience. The cheese monger offers samples. Elegant displays of well-stocked gift baskets catch the eye. From now until January 5, Charlotte shoppers can smell, taste, and see for themselves at A Taste of Southern Season, the pop-up shop in The Village at SouthPark on Sharon Road. Southern Season plans to open a 50,000-square-foot retail store in Charlotte in late 2016, which will also have a cooking school and its signature Weathervane Restaurant.
