A new grocery store focused on organic foods has opened its doors in Ashwaubenon.

Grand opening events will be held throughout Wednesday at Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, 2767 S. Oneida St.

Doors opened at 7 a.m. Before the grand opening, four shoppers in line took part in a "Supermarket Sweep" type competition to win Green Bay Packers tickets.

Here's a schedule of events for the rest of the day:

10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Boar's Head Hot Dog Cart. Donations go to Happily Ever After No Kill Animal Sanctuary.

12-3 p.m.

5-8 p.m.

Additional events are scheduled for Thursday.

Ashwaubenon's Fresh Thyme store is the fifth of its kind in the state of Wisconsin. Fresh Thyme is a midwest-based company.

The company promotes natural meat raised without hormones, organic produce, fresh seafood, eat-on-the-go meals, locally roasted coffee beans, and earth-friendly cleaning supplies.

"Our big thing is produce. We have a lot of unique items in produce, natural items, organic items. A lot of local items. I think that consumers in the area will see our local items and that's a big draw for us," says Nate Black, Director of Operations.
