Argenta Market celebrates third anniversary

Posted By on Wed, Apr 3, 2013 at 5:30 PM

One of my favorite places in the metro area, Argenta Market, is celebrating their third anniversary on Saturday, April 13. The North Little Rock store has long been one of my go-to spots for fresh local produce, organic meat (from steaks to lamb fries), and house-made food like that shrimp and grits dish pictured above that will knock your socks off.

In celebration of the start of their fourth year, the market has teamed up with Ratchford Exotic Meat Farm, ice lolly specialists Le Pops, ice cream geniuses Loblolly Creamery, The Resident Chef, and Southern Girl Soapery. These folks will have food samples, demonstrations, and raffle prizes available, and each shopper will receive a free reusable grocery bag. If that weren't enough, the festivities will coincide with the opening of the Argenta Farmers Market right across the street.

Argenta Market is located on Main Street in the Argenta Arts District of North Little Rock, and the event will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is a good chance to get your hands on some of the season's first local produce, meet some vendors, and maybe score some free foodie swag.
