Stroll down Commonwealth Avenue in the heart of Plaza Midwood, surrounded by artists, makers, and charlotte's favorite creative businesses.

After shopping, grab a beer or a sandwich at one of the many establishments along the street or shop with the small businesses permanently residing in PM.

Midwood Market provides the overall event and the foot traffic. All vendors must provide their own setup, including the required tent and any tables or chairs you may need. We do not provide wifi. In a broader sense, we have the right to choose which vendors are marketed via our social media channels, but you will be included on the Facebook event page. You'll also have priority registration in any educational events we host.
Applications go out one time via email for each date. Applications generally go out two months in advance of the market date.
We generally have an average of 15 businesses on our waiting list for each market. We do not notify the waiting list if they don't get moved. We only let those know who are moved from the waiting list to the accepted list.
The first vendors accepted are the ones that best fit the people who attend. We look for vendors that target the Plaza Midwood resident who are affordable and creative.
