Last week I shared my excitement about the new Fresh Thyme store opening in Oakley. The idea of wholesome healthy foods at affordable prices was especially appealing to me since I have a semi-large family to feed. I was excited to visit the store and see if it held up to all the hype.
I wasn’t the only one excited about the opening of the new market – the parking lot was packed, and the store seemed to be bursting from the seems. The first thing I noticed, and of course my kids favorite, was the bakery section. They had a ton of great bakery items from cookies, to pies and cakes and beyond. We picked up a cherry pie for our labor day festivities, and the kids each picked a cookie. They have tons of selections, including gluten-free options.
Now my favorite part was just next to the bakery, ready-made meals! They had a lot of food to choose from, and I was super psyched that they had soo many healthy, natural ingredients to choose from. I did pick up a few pizzas and I have to say they were delicious.
I was able to pick up some of the great deals they were offering as well, such as 77 cent blackberries, sweet corn 6 for $1, and organic grape tomatoes for just 99 cents a carton! They have some great deals coming up next week as well, and I can’t wait to go back – asparagus for $1.97 a pound, and Haas avocados 3 for $1.

I love convenience and when I can quickly pick something up so the meals that are already ready are so nice. The salad bar looks fabulous too.
I’m sure I would spend a ton of time in the bakery section, looks tasty!
I love supermarkets with ready made meals. I used to feel weird about actually getting an already prepared meal from a grocery store, but they make some of the most delicious ones!
The ready-made meals are a great option! I love to prepare homemade meals, but with all that’s going on with the school schedules there isn’t always time. Or should I have said thyme?
The prices for produce that you mentioned were amazing. I’m jealous you have such a terrific place to shop by you!
My friend said one of these opened near her and she loves it! I wish we could get one, it sounds and looks amazing!
Wish we had this by us, looks like they have great fresh products at unbeatable prices.
Not all ready made is created equal and having fresh ready-made options with wholesome ingredients is fabulous! I love having easy options I feel good about feeding my family when my days are just too crazy for home cooked meals
I’d like to dive right into their fresh produce section!
I wish we had one of these by us
This store looks amazing! I love that more FRESH stores are popping up across the country.
I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Fresh Thyme before. I vote you got a ton of those berries, wow 99 cents.
What a neat place. I love that more and more of these are popping up as people get more health conscious about what they put in to their bodies.
This place looks amazing! I have never been in a Fresh Thyme (or even heard of it) before. 🙂
Love that they have a ready made healthy alternatives for the on-the-go person. I used to have one similar near my old work and it was great having a healthy ready to eat foods at my finger tips.
We have no farmers market in our immediate area. I’d like it if we got one of these.
