The team behind The Exchange at 36th is opening a second location adjacent to Monarch Market in Uptown on Monday, April 15.

Why it matters: Uptown is bouncing back following a major drop in foot traffic ushered in by the pandemic. As employees return to their corporate offices, they need somewhere to eat.

What they're saying: "We're really excited to be a part of Uptown," says co-owner Andrea Franceschelli, who recently celebrated The Exchange at 36th's third anniversary at the original NoDa location.

The vibe: The Exchange Market is located at One Independence Center at 101 N. Tryon St., next to Monarch Market, Charlotte's newest food hall.

  • The 880-square-foot space has some seats but will mostly serve as a grab-and-go spot.
  • Expect sandwiches, snacks, and drinks like sodas, wine and beer.
  • The market also offers other goods for last-minute gifts like greeting cards and candles from Vintage Sun Company Candles.

Zoom out: The Exchange Market is developer Crescent Communities' latest addition to One Independence Center as part of a complete overhaul of the building — a more than $30 million investment, per a press release.

  • The 20-story building has leased 23,000 square feet of restaurant and food and beverage space.

What's next: The Exchange Market is open daily from 11am to 8pm.

Expect goods from local businesses like Queen Charlotte's Pimento Cheese, Green Brothers Juice, Vintage Sun Company Candles, Lenny Boy Kombucha, Charlotte's top breweries, Kanna CBD, Pasta & Provisions, Latino Bakes Cookies and more. Photo: Courtesy of The Exchange Uptown
