Last week, I was invited to attend Bloggers, Brews & Blues in celebration of the grand opening of the new Fresh Thyme Farmers Market in Farmington, Mich.
I was so excited to receive the invite. Not only is Fresh Thyme one of my favorite stores, but this new location is only 10 minutes away from me.
Fresh Thyme is focused on healthy and organic products and groceries and has a huge produce department that carries organic and local fruits and vegetables. They also have a huge natural meat department, healthy deli foods (including some that can be purchased “to go”), bakery goods, 400 bulk food bins, dairy and frozen and health supplement products.
I am in love with this store, friends.
Their Bakery has delicious artisan baked goods that they get from local bakeries, as well as bread that they bake fresh every day in every store. And, for my gluten-free friends, they have some super-tasty gluten-free muffins, cupcakes, and bread.
The Deli & Cheese section includes deli meats and cheeses sliced to order, custom sandwiches, a delicious soup and salad bar, as well as salads that are prepared every day. For added convenience, they have heat-n-eat meals and hot and ready natural rotisserie chicken.
The Produce department is located right in the middle of the store. You can tell that it’s the most important to them. Everything looked so fresh and colorful. They work with local farms to get seasonal produce, as well as with certified growers to get organic the highest-quality items.
They have a really big Vitamins & Body Care area that includes paraben-free lotions, fragrance-free shampoos, aluminum-free deodorant, as well as natural skin care products for babies and toddlers. Of course, my favorite was the natural makeup and facial care products.
Their Beer & Wine areas are the most extensive I’ve seen in a while. It’s full of craft beers from local breweries, as well as imported and domestic favorites. The wine was priced amazingly and had not only the usual suspects but some unique brands as well.
I am so happy that Fresh Thyme has decided to extend its Midwest growth in Michigan. It’s such a great store and they have some pretty good prices for some wonderful products and groceries.
Disclaimer: Though I was given a super-useful and awesome gift basket at the Bloggers, Brews & Blues event, all opinions of Fresh Thyme are my own. I truly do love this store.
