Fresh Thyme Farmers Market Central Iowa

I am extremely excited about a new grocery store that has been built in our community … Fresh Thyme Farmers Market!

Fresh , Healthy & Great Prices!-2

Fresh Thyme opened last Wednesday and held fun events, activities, live music, specials and more through out the week and weekend to celebrate their grand opening! I finally got a chance to check it out and I was impressed!

First off, I loved the fact that there was playing guitar in the middle of the store. Even though it was packed, it made the entire atmosphere more fun and laid back.

There are lots of similarities to Whole Foods, Fresh Market, and Natural Grocers, but overall Fresh Thyme is my favorite!

Some highlights of the store were: 

The salad bar! I even had dinner in there little cafe and enjoyed every bite!   IMG_4119

Bulk Oils & Liquids. What a great idea! I do not remember seeing something like this at any of the other health food stores.

Bulk coffee! Fresh Market offered something like this, but I found an all new favorite here! The Michigan Cherry smells amazing and tastes wonderful. I highly recommend it. And what a great price!

I absolutely loved this idea! They bag ripe bananas for you, at a discounted price! If you are planning on making banana bread, this is the place to purchase your bananas!

Freshly squeezed juice, made fresh daily! I love this. What a great idea!

Bulk spices. I have been reading more & more that spices go bad! Sometimes you need just a little bit for a recipe. Here, you can purchase as little, or as much as you want!

The bulk section is huge! There are lots of options from oats & flours to snack food item and nuts. A great place to check for healthy snacks.
