‘NoDa-Hood’ Market gave residents a head start on holiday shopping

CHARLOTTE — Nearly 100 local businesses set up shop at the holiday market in NoDa on Saturday, giving shoppers the perfect opportunity to mark up the holiday gift list.

Hosted at Divine Barrel Brewing on North Davidson Street, the Holiday NoDa-Hood Market featured small businesses, music and food trucks.
