The 7th Street Public Market will close for “emergency infrastructure repairs” starting Saturday night, , according to Charlotte Center City Partners. The market will reopen Thursday.
Crews will work on the drainage line that runs under the market between Sixth and Seventh streets. The work is necessary to fix the aging infrastructure that’s critical to the market’s drainage system, the group said.
“(The drainage line) has caused problems on and off through the years, so we are pleased and grateful that the landlord is fixing it,” said Moira Quinn, chief operating officer and senior vice president of communications at CCCP.
“We are really happy that the work is being done. The businesses are taking it in stride and we plan to do cool things to ‘reopen’ on Thursday,” she added.
The 7th Street Public Market opened in 2011 at 224 E. 7th St. The market has 14 vendors, including several local restaurants like Pure Pizza and a variety of small, local businesses like Orrman’s Cheese Shop.
