When Fresh Thyme first announced that it was coming to Mt. Prospect, we were immediately eager to check out the new addition to our grocery store scene. We shop for many organic products, free range eggs, natural meats and more products that can often be a trick to find. Fresh Thyme focuses on supplying fresh, natural and organic items so we were thrilled to add this store to our weekly shopping choices. We have been really happy with the quality at Fresh Thyme as well as the choices. The bulk section is one of the most impressive that I have seen sporting over 300 products. Amazing! The store is neat, organized and easy to navigate. The food is well presented and you can immediately see the quality. With how much we have enjoyed the store, I was excited to learn that Fresh Thyme will be expanding in the area this week with openings in Crystal Lake, Chicago and Naperville this Wednesday, October 14!
