Gammon’s Market is a small piece of the healthy living movement that serves a large audience in Sumner County and Nashville. Previously named “Hendersonville Produce”, the healthy and organic values and ideals of the frequented local market extended beyond Sumner County’s borders with the opening of their second location in the growingly popular Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood in Nashville. 

Focused on organic and in-season locally sourced produce with artisanal groceries, the Hendersonville location offers more than these high-quality items! Inside Gammon’s Market is their coffee bar serving cups of warm goodness that make the cold disappear and allow the warmth to take over. 

Taste the local seasonal flavors in a cup of their warm apple cider with a sprig of cinnamon and topped with whipped cream, or warm up with a winter favorite, St Nick. A latte with a collaboration of peppermint and white chocolate.
