Weaver Street Market opened in Carrboro in June, 1988, thanks largely to the support of the community. Start-up was funded by a loan from the Self-Help Ventures Fund, by a Community Development Block Grant from the Town of Carrboro, and individual community supporters. Such innovative financing was motivated by the prospect of developing a truly community-owned business. That prospect came true, as the store opened to immediate success and quickly achieved a presence that has transcended simply selling quality products. From its congenial environs and good food, to hosting and cosponsoring events and donating thousands of dollars each year to local schools and charities, Weaver Street Market reflects the community in everything it does.
