Raleigh City Market

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.
