Fresh Thyme Farmers Market to open Aug. 13

Dublin will be the home of Ohio's first Fresh Thyme Farmers Market.

The market that focuses on fresh and organic offerings and local fruits and vegetables will open at 6670 Sawmill Road at 7 a.m. Aug. 13.

The Costume Vault opened in the space in spring 2012, offering costumes all year, but the business only lasted for about a year.

Fresh Thyme Farmers Market currently has stores in Illinois and Indiana and is planning four others throughout Ohio in the next two years.

Another is planned for High Street in Worthington in 2016.

The store will offer several opening day specials, including a free bag of groceries valued at $50 to the first 250 customers.

According to Fresh Thyme Market's website, "the stores' signature offering is an extensive produce department with organic and local fruits and vegetables.

In addition, Fresh Thyme's full-service offerings include a natural meat department, healthy deli foods to go, bakery goods, 400 bulk food bins, natural and organic groceries, dairy and frozen, as well as vitamins and body care products."
