Today on Breaking with Brett Jensen we’re joined by Charlotte City Council member Tariq Bokhari about “El Mercadito,” a new flea market opening this weekend at 1720 Galleria Blvd.

Bokhari explains why the market needed a new home as well as why he got involved in the project + what he thinks things like it contribute to a city like Charlotte and why it was important for something positive and non-partisan to be successful.
