Members of the Quarter



We are new to the community and we have felt so welcomed by our business partners as well by our local community.  Our decision to relocate our family back to Ferndale was pretty easy.  As you know my wife grew up in Ferndale, so for us this was like coming home.  We found out that things have changed in Ferndale since we left 13 years ago.  It is still as small town, but it has grown a lot and I look forward to seeing it continue to mature with the support of the Ferndale Grocery Outlet.
