WEST LAFAYETTE – Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, a rapidly growing Midwest specialty grocer focused on healthy organic products and groceries, announced today the company’s newest West Lafayette area store will open on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at 7:00 a.m. at 2410 N Salisbury St. Suite 110, West Lafayette, IN 47906.
“We’re so excited for West Lafayette to join our Fresh Thyme family,” said Chris Sherrell, President and CEO of Fresh Thyme. “From stocking local products, hiring residents and partnering with nonprofits, we are committed to the West Lafayette community. We invite residents of all ages to celebrate with us!”
The first 250 shoppers (age 18 and older) in line on grand opening morning that receive a ticket will receive a free pre-packed bag of groceries, kicking off our Grand Opening celebration with live music, sampling, fundraising for the community and great savings.
In addition to stocking local produce, Fresh Thyme will feature local Indiana products including BONZ BBQ Sauce, Broad Ripple Chips, Brooke’s Naturals products, Circle City Kombucha, Hoosier Popcorn and more. The West Lafayette location will also feature a Natural Living Department, with items such as Bulk bath bombs, shower scrubs, medicinal and nutritional herbs, and DIY ingredients (dried flowers, beeswax, citric acid, etc.).
To further express its commitment to the West Lafayette community, Fresh Thyme will present a check to the West Lafayette Schools Education Foundation for $2,500. Additionally, Fresh Thyme will be raising funds for the Friends of the West Lafayette Public Library throughout the week by donating sales from the Boar’s Head Hot Dog Cart.
