With the innovative spirit of the Triangle, it’s no wonder entrepreneurs choose to set up shop here, literally.
The Bull City has its share of coffee shops, but a stop at Jeddah’s Tea should definitely be on your list. Enjoy a cup of fragrant, free-trade tea and take home a jar of Golden Milk Base. Experience a bit of Paris at Vert & Vogue (the owners met there in 2001) and shop responsibly made clothing from independent designers. Making dinner? With a mission to keep healthy, sustainable eating within reach, Bulldega Urban Market offers local produce and humanely raised meat at accessible prices. They also have a great selection of local gifts.
Looking to shop and do good at the same time? The Flourish Market partners with 50+ brands from all over the world, providing dignified jobs and fair wages to artisans and makers in vulnerable communities. Looking for something a little different? Edge of Urge offers uncommon gifts, accessories, jewelry & clothing from emerging designers & independent brands. (Don’t leave without buying a Durham candle from local maker, Bright Black.)
