Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market [GIVEAWAY]

Written by on August 12, 2014 in Uncategorized - 32 Comments

Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market will debut in Dublin this Wednesday, August 13 as the first of the health-conscious grocery stores to open in Ohio. Fresh Thyme gave me a preview of the store and a $25 gift card to giveaway to one lucky reader – details on how to win at the bottom.

The store includes an extensive produce department with organic and local fruits and vegetables, a natural meat department, bakery goods, vitamins and body care products, and more of what you would expect in a full-service store, but naturally I was primarily interested in one thing: the booze.


The beer section includes a six-pack station, where you can choose any six of more than sixty beers for a set price of $9.99. Selections are sorted in the cooler by style, and include local offerings from Columbus Brewing, Elevator Brewing and Four String Brewing. They also have a small selection of bombers, plus standard six-packs and cases.

The store also has two aisles of wine, mostly priced under $20 a bottle. They offer a 10% discount if you purchase any six bottles.


Fresh Thyme is located at 6670 Sawmill Road. The store’s grand opening is Wednesday, August 13 at 7am. For more information visit Fresh Thyme on Facebook or at

    I’d like to win because I love to check out new grocery stores in the area that try to do things differently than the biggest grocery store chains. Other, smaller local stores have been great so far, and I look forward to checking this one out the next time I’m in the area.

    I want to win because my inventory of beer is getting dangerously low. I’m also a hippie when it comes to food so this is right up my alley.

    Thank you for the info! I could certainly use the gift certificate (as anyone could). Also, I’m looking forward to an in-store natural meat selection at my convenience vs. waiting for a Saturday farmer’s market.
