Find more of what the market’s known for – only handmade and vintage items. ONLY.

It’s bigger than ever – there’s more room to stretch out!  You’ll find more than 80 (local or regional) vendors selling housewares, furniture, decor, clothing, jewelry and furniture created from architectural scrap!

Come shop, hang with your friends and pick up a little something for you, for Father’s Day, for your kids, for you….and enjoy drinks and food from Not Just Coffee, Birdsong Brewing Co., Bleu Barn Bistro, The Dumpling Lady and King of Pops – and listen to a live band, too!

Back to ‘Camp North End’ for a minute.   Per CharlotteFive.com, it’s “the massive new project ATCO Properties & Management is developing north of Uptown…(they are transforming) …a bunch of historic buildings that used to be an old Ford factory (Ford used to build Model T’s there!) and a missile plant into a massive mix of offices, housing, retail and more.”

‘Camp’ is an acronym for ‘Charlotte Army Missile Plant.’

Where is Camp North End?  Just north of Uptown, north of the N.C. Music Factory, between Statesville Avenue, Graham Street and Woodward Avenue.

To GPS, the address is: 1776 Statesville Ave, Charlotte, NC.


See ya there!
