The Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce, Mayor Arlene Juracek and other village officials will be present for the ribbon cutting.

"The entire Fresh Thyme team welcomes community residents to come out and experience what the market has to offer," CEO Chris Sherrell said in a news release. "We are eager to meet our new neighbors and hope to see them on this exciting day."

The grand opening event will feature food samplings and a grocery bag giveaway to the first 200 customers. The celebration will continue throughout the week with events for kids including face painting, balloon animals, and performances by Miss Jamie from the Farm.

"We are excited that Fresh Thyme Farmers Market has chosen Mount Prospect as the first site for this new locally-focused grocer," Juracek said.
