Goodness, can I just tell you how much I'm loving our new Fresh Thyme Market here in Columbus? I went this morning and took advantage of their double ad Wednesday (meaning you get to enjoy last week's ad savings as well as the savings for the new ad which starts each Wednesday), and was so pleased with my trip.
I know this is a market that's still only available in a few cities, but if you have one near you, you've got to take advantage of their special sales each week. They're regular prices are pretty high (from what I've seen), but their sales are really sales, so it's worth stocking up. I also love that they offer great sales on some of their organic items, which make for just incredible deals on those compared to other stores. While I didn't purchase all organic items today I did get quite a few this week, which you can see highlighted with the * in the picture below.
Here's what I bought . . .
- 5 packages strawberries $1.25 each
- 2 packages blackberries $.88 each
- organic celery $.99
- (2) 3 lb bags organic apples $3.99 each
- organic carrots $.99
- 2 organic lemons 2/$1
- 1 tomato $.72
- 2 bunches green onions 2/$1
- 2 green peppers 2/$1
- 3 pears $1.26
- 3.5 lb rump roast $10.35 ($2.99/lb.)
- 2.89 lb boneless skinless chicken breast $5.75 ($1.99/lb)
- 2.94 lb cut up whole fryer chicken $5.86 ($1.99/lb – this had a tag showing $.99/lb which is why I bought it – wouldn't normally pay that much)
Their chicken is on sale 50% off this week (making it $1.99/lb.) and is minimally processed. I haven't seen prices anywhere close to these on produce anywhere else in our area, so I'm thrilled to have this option to shop for whole foods!
Do you have a Fresh Thyme grocer in your hometown (or another store that offers similar sales occasionally?) I'd love to hear your thoughts as well as other tips on saving on organics and fresh foods – leave a comment to share! You can also check out all the sales at Fresh Thyme each week over HERE.
