Fresh Thyme Farmers Market to open 1st Wisconsin store

Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, a rapidly growing Midwest specialty retailer focused on healthy and organic products and groceries, will open its first Wisconsin store in Milwaukee’s North End.

The store is at 470 E. Pleasant Street and will first open at 7 a.m. Wednesday, June 8.

That morning, the first 250 shoppers in line will receive a free tote bag filled with Fresh Thyme offerings.

Also, at 3:45 p.m. June 7, the store will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony with city officials, including Mayor Tom Barrett and Ald. Nik Kovak, as well as Lakefront Brewery owner Russ Klisch.

“We’re thrilled to be opening our first store in Wisconsin and to fill a much needed gap in downtown Milwaukee. We love the city and look forward to serving the community,” Fresh Thyme CEO Chris Sherrell said in a news release. “The Fresh Thyme mission is to service our customers like family and to offer healthy good food at really good prices.”

As part of the grand opening, Fresh Thyme Farmers Market has scheduled a variety of family-friendly events on-site with local partners.

Fresh Thyme, in an announcement for the store, said it is passionate about connections to the local community, from stocking local products and produce to hiring local residents and partnering with nonprofit efforts that benefit the residents.

Fresh Thyme has filled 100 full-time and part-time positions for the Milwaukee store.
