I want to thank all my Frugalistas for coming out for the VIP opening of Fresh Thyme Farmers Market in Crystal Lake. It was amazing and so fun. I was super impressed with Emily. She greeted us at the door and told us all about the great deals on fresh food and the best insiders tip for savings. Wednesday is double Ad Day. That means that the Ad from last week overlaps with the new Ad for the week coming up. Double savings Frugalistas ...I love it! I also found out that they carry over 1700 Gluten free products. I got to meet Greg the in house butcher manager and I asked him all about saving on meat. He told me that they always have a special on meat like 99 cents per pound All Natural Chicken Thighs and Drumsticks or Salmon $3.97 per pound. They also grind all the meat there fresh daily and fish is fresh daily. All the sausages are made fresh...I got the Chicken Sausage with feta and spinach. You definitely want to sign up for the email savings because it will let you know when they run special 48 hour sales.
The store was super clean and the produce selection was outstanding. When I met with the HR dept. manager she told me that Fresh Thyme gives to the local food pantry weekly. I personally thought that was fantastic that they give back to our local community. I also really appreciated the salad bar, olive bar and rotisserie chicken.
