CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Markets at 11, a spring event series, has returned to Ballantyne’s Backyard on second Saturdays of each month until June, according to Northwood Office.

The signature event series will take place on April 9, May 14 and June 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the community park located on the former golf course in Ballantyne.
