SUGARCREEK TOWNSHIP, Ohio (February 25, 2015) – Dayton’s first Fresh Thyme Farmers Market will be celebrating its grand opening March 25 in the Sugarcreek Township community. Fresh Thyme is a rapidly growing Midwest grocer focused on healthy, organic and local offerings; the store will be located at 4317 Feedwire Road in Dayton. Expect lots of family fun and prizes at the grand opening, including Fresh Thyme’s much anticipated free grocery giveaway!

“We couldn’t be happier about opening a store in the Sugarcreek Township and Centerville communities,” said Fresh Thyme’s CEO Chris Sherrell. “Our passion is improving the way people eat by offering fresh, organic and healthy options at a great value.”

Fresh Thyme grand openings are best known for their grocery giveaway; the first 250 shoppers through the doors receive a free reusable shopping bag filled with $50 in healthy and organic groceries. Come early to ensure your spot in line as past openings have seen hundreds of people in line at daybreak, some of which had arrived the night before!

“Grand openings are a lot of fun for everyone; it’s our way of introducing ourselves to new neighbors and letting them see what Fresh Thyme can offer,” said Sherrell. “From children’s activities such as face painting and balloon animals to live entertainment and food sampling, there will be something to do for the whole family!”

The South Metro Regional Chamber will be on hand for the ribbon cutting at 6:45 a.m. followed by the doors opening at 7 a.m. In addition to the grand opening festivities, in-store events will also be scheduled throughout the remainder of the week!
