Bakery at Smokehouse Meat Market

New Bakery at the Country Smokehouse Meat Market in Blairsville, Georgia

Opening day of the Country Smokehouse Meat Market Bakery was an exciting event. A large crowd turned out to celebrate the new addition to the Meat Market. Family and friends were there to help serve free samples on opening day.

The bakery sells gourmet breads, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, muffins, scones, icecream cakes, fudge, and other candies. They also offer a large selection of coffee and cappuccino. The bakery uses quality ingredients such as Amish butter and farm fresh eggs. The cherry brownies are a delightful favorite.

The place is a family business. Owned and operated by brothers, Kenley and Phil Redditt, and their wives, Sharon and Laurie, the atmosphere is friendly and relaxing. Laurie is the pastry chef. She expects to receive her Culinary Degree from North Georgia Technical College next quarter. She bakes delicious pies and her cakes are beautiful creations. The cases are full of tasty treats. The breads are golden brown and the smell is heavenly.

The Redditts would like to thank all family members and friends that attended the bakery's open house. Kenley said, "We may be selling food but we're really in the people business. We take time to talk with our customers. I thank God for this new opportunity to serve people. Come on down and visit your local butcher, baker, and candy maker."

The Country Smokehouse Meat Market is located one mile south of Blairsville on Byron Hubert Reece Memorial Highway (129/South) and has been in business for nine years. The addition of a bakery is good news for everyone that loves good food.
