Fresh Thyme Seeks Hyperlocal Products

Specialty Food Association

Ten-store Fresh Thyme Market is on the hunt for hyperlocal products to fill the shelves of a new concept store in the historic Foundry area of St. Louis.

The retailer is focused on fresh, healthy, natural, organic offerings at affordable prices and believes sourcing new, local products for this concept store will help it continue fostering relationships within the community. Fresh Thyme Market is partnering with RangeMe on the initiative.

Jane Wilcox, store manager of Fresh Thyme Market at the Foundry, set a goal of 1,000 local products to include in the concept store.

"We are eager to source products made within the St. Louis region," she said in a statement. "Being able to support our local community, both food producers and consumers, is one of the most exciting parts of the Foundry store's opening later this year."
