A General Store Just South Of Atlanta
In this testimonial, Tammi Cody, owner of Fern’s Market, discusses her unique general store and the benefits of purchasing food service equipment and supplies from ACityDiscount.
Fern’s Market is located in the Serenbe community. Serenbe is in the heart of Chattahoochee Hill Country. This mixed use community spans over 40,000 acres, and is one of the last undeveloped stretches of land in the Atlanta area. The founders of the Serenbe community saw an opportunity for creating a “live, work and play” community in a sustainable way.
Fern’s Market provides a community farmers’ market experience in a welcoming general store environment. Tammi understands that her clientele want to know where their food comes from, and so she makes it a priority to source from local farmers and producers whenever possible. It is also her goal to carry and endorse foods and products from small companies as passionate as they are in the Serenbe community about food, the environment and social responsibility. In keeping with this mission, Fern’s Market offers products from small-batch producers, farmer-owned, family-owned and employee-owned businesses.
Store offerings include: locally-grown produce, grass fed beef, hardware for the home, cookware, soft serve ice cream and King of Pops popsicles, just to name a few.
Fern’s Market has been open since June of 2012. Before opening, Tammi shopped with ACityDiscount to equip her general store. She purchased items including Turbo Air Glass Door Chest Freezers, Stainless Sinks and Worktables, Sani Serve Soft Ice Cream Machine and Tea & Coffee Equipment.
