The heart of Fresh Thyme Farmers Markets' 28,000 square foot stores will be bountiful produce, including locally sourced and organic fruits and vegetables all at incredible values. Additional features of the markets include:

-- Over 400 bins of natural and organic bulk items and small batch locally roasted premium coffee beans

-- A butcher shop featuring all-natural handmade sausage made daily in store, offering over a dozen varieties

-- Specialty items such as gluten-free and dairy-free products

-- A full dairy section, which sources local Midwest items

-- Fresh Thyme Kitchen featuring healthy prepared salads and meals as well as a full salad bar, made-to-order sandwiches and a bakery featuring artisan breads

-- Hops & Grapes department with an expansive selection of wine and local craft beers

In Illinois, stores are also planned in Deerfield, Fairview Heights, Naperville, Downers Grove and Joliet. Indiana sites are planned for Indianapolis, Lafayette, and Ft. Wayne In Michigan, one store is currently planned for 2015 in East Lansing. A Minnesota store is planned in Bloomington, while one is set for both Ballwin and Kirkwood, Mo. In Ohio, the company plans stores in Columbus, Cincinnati, Centerville and Worthington. Wisconsin stores are planned in Milwaukee and Broofield. By 2019, Free Thyme expects to have opened an additional 59 locations across the Midwest.
