This year we went to Argenta Market for our family photos.
Argenta is the Main Street District of our town and has been undergoing some revitalization for a number of years. One of the most fun developments was the addition of this darling local market.
We pass this market every day on our way to and from school. It is a favorite stop for a treat in the afternoons or for a lunch date in the cafe. They carry tons of local Arkansas products, which makes it easy to support our local farms and businesses.
Also, it is super cutie!
Which made it so fun to do pictures there.
I love this case of drinks. All the darling bottles. My kids run straight for these sodas every time!
We used these soda bottle pictures in our Christmas cards. I love how different they are!
Also, I love that Whitney always takes the time to get some pictures of just Taido and me. Sometimes we forget that our family started with just us.
Argenta Market has a wonderful cafe in the back and they also do catering. In December, Whitney and I got to attend a tasting of some of their menu items and since then I keep going back for their yummy sandwiches. I loved hearing the chef talk about food, because I totally share his passion for cooking! If you go, try the Croque Monsieur!
Here’s a shot of Simon scanning some Petit Jean Sausage for our Gumbo. So cutie!
It was a little chaotic as we were all checking out, but I love that Whitney captured all this. Our photo shoot lasted all evening as she watched us also cook dinner and eat together.
I love how these pictures capture an evening of this season of our life together.
You can also enjoy your lunch at these front windows while you watch the Main Street life in front of you. From April to October, a farmer’s market happens just across the street and these stools are always full of locals drinking coffee who are enjoying the market on Saturday mornings.
I am so glad this little market is in our town and I am super thankful to Argenta Market for letting us invade and take our family photos in such a fun setting!
Every year we look for something new to do for family photos.
Where would you love to take family photos? I would love to hear!
