A Mission We Can All Believe In.

We have a simple mission at Fresh Thyme:
to improve the way our communities eat by
offering fresh and healthy food at amazing values.

At Fresh Thyme, you’ll find a natural food marketplace that feeds your body without feasting on your wallet. Much of what we offer is organic and natural. We are committed to providing more items that are Clean Label, organic or food you feel good about (no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives).

We also have many offerings tailored to customers following vegan, paleo, keto, vegetarian or wheat- and gluten-free diets. No matter what particular path you follow on your journey toward healthier living, Fresh Thyme’s selection will not disappoint.

Let's do the

Time Warp Together

As you shop our stores, you’ll be taken back to the good ol’ days when food was pure, simple, nutritious and delicious. Think of us as a weekend farmers market wrapped up in the convenience of a neighborhood store. But this isn’t any ordinary grocery store with imposing, hard-to-reach shelves and head-scratching layouts. Our stores are so easy to navigate that we don’t number our aisles or hand out store maps. We keep it simple, with a vibrant and fun environment that makes shopping easy and enjoyable.

A Special Quality

all our own

We think you’ll appreciate our fresh foods and low prices, but you’ll really dig our quality. With our trusted neighbors and partners in the Midwest, we’re able to offer the freshest and best quality ingredients close to home. So, you get farmers market freshness AND supermarket convenience. Fresh Thyme will never knowingly disappoint you when it comes to freshness and quality. And we back it up with a guarantee: If for any reason your purchase does not give you complete satisfaction, the full purchase price will be cheerfully refunded immediately upon request.

Job One:


For starters, we offer quality items at a good price. Then we hire friendly, knowledgeable people who are enthusiastic about healthy lifestyles. Our team members are encouraged to be themselves. Instead of memorizing scripts, they’re authentic, friendly and fun. Happy team members naturally provide better service. We want to satisfy and delight our customers. How far will we go to make that happen? If you see something you’d like to sample, let a team member know and they’ll open the package for an on-the-spot tasting. We believe in our food.

We Live

where you live

We don’t live in a bubble at Fresh Thyme. We’re involved in the community—from working with local and regional farmers to supporting many deserving organizations. We donate to food banks and soup kitchens, work with local groups supporting children and conservation, and kick off every Grand Opening with a donation to a community cause. Every time you shop a Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, you can visit our Giving Tree to see which local organizations we’re supporting with in-kind donations and fundraising events. We’re honored to help, but we couldn’t do it without the generous participation of our customers.
