Do you remember community markets? They were on every other block in communities where the proprietor lived on the top floor or behind the building. The households of the community could shop for their daily or weekly groceries and supplies, charge it and bring the food home to the family.
This is Cox Corner Market
When Mr. & Mrs. Cox became worried about their daughter's health, they took her to a local Children's Health Clinic. They were told that their daughters problem was her diet and that she needed to change her eating habits. They went looking around trying different restaurants, recipes, and foods.
When they went back to her doctor and there wasn't a change in her health, they eventually figured out that, it was the way her food was being processed.
After researching different food options and many business plans, they came up with the concept of a classic community market and deli that caters to selling healthy local farm to table vegetables, baked goods, and sundry items.
As the Cox's started looking for healthy food in the Memphis area markets, they weren't finding what they needed. So, they went online and found a local family farm, Tennessee Grass Fed, located in Clarksville, Tennessee. They feature Grass Fed /Finished beef, and Pasture raised pork, lamb and chicken.
Next they looked for a seafood distributor. They then came across a company in Alaska, where they use "Sustainable" harvesting practices. Virgin Bay Seafood, owned by Mike and Cathy Stokes, they sell Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon, such as; Coho, Prince William Sound Sockeye and King Salmon. As well as Cod, Halibut, Weathervane Scallops, Crab Legs and other Alaskan Seafood.
To keep with the local sea to table concept, they are purchasing "Gulf Coast Seafood" partnering with Inland Seafood Company.
Our bread is supplied by La Baguette (a long standing Memphis Bakery). We also sell and use Dave's Bagels, (another local baker) in our store, along with getting our produce from local farms.
So, now we have all this healthy, high quality food. Why not add Boar's Head Brands? One of the highest quality, deli meat and cheese suppliers in the industry.
The deli was formed based on the meat, seafood, luncheon meats, and cheeses the store sold and used.
Keeping with the healthy nutritious food concept, Mr. and Mrs. Cox incorporated the local farm raised vegetables, eggs, bread and butter to accompany the menu items for the deli.
By informing our customers of the healthy options, and by sharing with them the understanding that, "There is no source like our resource!" We encourage everyone to taste our food by offering samples and then they are able to make an informed, knowledgeable, decision from our selection.
