Welcome to W J Dent & Sons, formerly Sheaffer's Food Mart! We are located in Tall Timbers, MD. The store began operations in 1927 as Bailey's Store and has been in operation ever since.

Andy has been serving Tall Timbers and the surrounding communities for over 30 years. Not only do we offer quality meats, you haven't lived until you have sampled Andy's Stuffed Ham, we also offer package goods, produce, crab seasoning, dairy, and spirits. Save gas and stop by your local market instead of driving into town. When William J "Chief" Dent retired from the Navy in 1964 he began working for John Sheaffer. In 1978, Jo and Chief Dent purchased the store from Grace and John Sheaffer. Over 25 years later, Chief has continued the traditions of their quaint country market. With the help of two of his sons, David and Andy, Chief, at age 88, is still actively involved in the day-to-day operations. Together with their staff - Paulette, Matt, Sandi, Ashlie, Sharon, Alex and Kim they provide you with a friendly shopping experience.
