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

Here at Fresh Thyme, we are dedicated to enriching the lives in the communities we serve. We are beyond proud of our team members and customers throughout the Midwest for their ongoing dedication to hunger relief through their continual donations in store. The fight against hunger is an ongoing battle, and Fresh Thyme is dedicated to helping provide support for those who need it most through yearly donations to each of the food banks in our footprint. We are a longtime partner of Feeding America and their affiliated food relief members.

This October, we were humbled to announce a donation of over one million dollars, which includes funds from our Round Up program paired with a donation directly from Fresh Thyme’s charitable foundation. The donation will be shared across thirty-two local food banks throughout the Midwest.
