Replica 1920’s General Store Support Residents of Hammock Bay and Freeport.
Hammock Bay’s anxiously awaited General Store opened in Hammock Bay’s Town Center in the summer of 2019. Its inspiration came from Freeport’s original general store know as Wards Cafe. The Hammock Bay General Store is a fully functioning throwback replica reminiscent of the small-town feel of turn-of-the-century general stores. It features a walk-in beverage cooler, full line of cold drinks, ice cream and other frozen selections, dry goods, hot food, coffee, local goods, lottery and more. The interior showcases floor-to-ceiling rough poplar wood walls, polished and stained concrete floors, and vintage photographs of historic Freeport and its original general store. Three covered porches with rocking chairs wrap around the General Store, providing a perfect spot to relax and enjoy. Located adjacent to Hammock Bay’s Town Green and Event Stage, the General Store is open to the public and is a convenient stop for owners and residents of Hammock Bay.
