When Blake Barnes started The Common Market in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood of Charlotte in 2002, his big idea was to supply the neighborhood with urban convenience, a modern twist on general stores of the past. The market evolved into so much more. He added a deli… then a bar… then the inevitable happened.
A place filled with old friends, and a destination to find new ones.
Chuck Barger was a regular at the Plaza Midwood store. Over coffee one morning with Blake, Chuck mentioned opening another store. So in 2008 they decided to become business partners and expand the uncommon experience to South End—creating another loyal neighborhood mainstay.
