The Historic City Market District — An Ideal Location for Portraits in Raleigh
The City Market is an ideal environment in the city of Raleigh for engagement and portrait photography as it provides many different kinds of backgrounds and textures, all which give a vintage-inspired feel. The wood and brick surfaces make for a wonderful environment for taking pictures.
The City Market Neighborhood was formed in Raleigh in 1914. At its center is its namesake, the City Market, which functioned like a farmer’s market for many years until it was leased and used as a furniture store in the 1950s. By 1980 the City Council approved it to be added to the National Register of Historic Places and it underwent a revitalization process. This kicked off the revitalization of the rest of what is now known as the City Market Neighborhood, and the City Market itself is now home to a multitude of shops and other Raleigh businesses. Visitors will find quite an eclectic mix of boutique stores, gift stores, and art and photography galleries, and from April through October, the neighborhood comes alive with family-friendly entertainment and live music.
