As I mentioned last week, Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market had their grand opening this past Wednesday. I had the opportunity to visit the store that morning along with my younger two children. We were beyond impressed with the store, the employees, and the amazing food we found at equally amazing prices.
First off, I love the way the store is laid out. It has such an open feel to it, and everything is arranged in a manner that is shopper-friendly. Everywhere we turned, there were mounds of fresh produce – snap beans, cucumbers, blackberries, peaches….literally every color of the rainbow.
I also loved the fun extras at Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market that you won’t find at a traditional grocery store. For instance, there’s a station in the middle of the store where you can fill a jar of honey, choosing from the many varieties that are available to purchase. There’s also an entire aisle of specialty coffee beans that you can grind as well as an aisle of natural and organic foods that you can purchase in bulk.
After spending an hour and a half meandering through the store, we left with bags full of fresh produce and meat. Among the many items we purchased, these were my favorite deals that we found:
- All Natural Boneless Chicken Breasts – $1.57/lb.
- Blackberries – $0.57
- Seedless Watermelon – $1.57
- Kettle Brand Potato Chips – 4/$5
- Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade – $0.99
- Yellow Peaches, $0.88/lb.
- Cucumbers – 2/$1
- Avocados – $0.77
- Organic Bartlett Pears – $0.99/lb.
- Green Beans – $0.99/lb.
As a side note, I made the green beans for dinner this week, and they were hands-down the best green beans I’ve ever eaten in my life. In fact, my kids were still snacking on them even after all the dinner plates had been cleared!
All of the above items are on sale at Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market through Wednesday, September 3rd. Plus, I will be highlighting the best deals at Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market each week on Cincinnati Cents as well.
