After months--years maybe--of delays, on Thursday, April 15*, the Argenta Market
celebrates its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m.
Located at 512 Main St. in North Little Rock, in the former home of Argenta Seafood Co., the local- and organic-foods-focused grocery and deli has already launched a really impressive website
, with a blog of sorts, descriptions of all kinds of products it'll stock, plus a list of local farmers supplying the store and even a how-to video on making blueberry cobbler
-- the first of a promised series.
Neal Augustine, formerly with Harvest Foods in Little Rock, is the store manager. Jody Hardin is head of marketing and farming. And Shane Henderson is chef. He'll make gourmet to-go items and deli meals.
The grocery's hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Anyone excited? Or skeptical? Or got anything else to say?
