Some of the biggest excuses people throw out about eating healthy is that it is tough and expensive to do. It does take more effort than the convenience of a fast food drive-thru, which can derail a busy family looking to fill up between errands and obligations. As for healthy eating being more expensive, it certainly can be.
It doesn’t have to be, however, especially these days when we have more healthy venues to choose from than before.
We look at this post as a way to remind you of four health-oriented markets out there by sharing their newest updates. With choices like Earth Fare, Whole Foods, Fresh Thyme Market, and Georgetown Market available here in Indy, eating healthy doesn’t have to be an expensive hassle. Here’s what’s new with these businesses:
Whole Foods Market – We’ll start with Whole Foods, since you have a short window of time to take advantage of their newest sale. Just for Friday, August 8, wild-caught Alaska Coho salmon is on sale for $8.99 per pound. This Coho is fresh (never frozen), and boasts a rich lineup of Omega-3s while being full-flavored and tender enough to make it a great choice for grilling, summer salads, or fish sandwiches. Whole Foods gets its Coho only from fisheries rated green by the Monterey Bay Aquarium or Blue Ocean Institute, meaning this is high-quality fish. The sale is only one day long, but Whole Foods is good about bringing new one-day sales every week. If you miss the chance to enjoy this one, stay tuned for the next round.
Fresh Thyme Market – Fresh Thyme offers weekly ads on its healthy grocery items. The ads start and end on Thursdays, so our advice to you is to brave the crowds and do your shopping on Thursdays. You can use ads from the previous week and the coming week at the same time. From August 7-14, Fresh Thyme is offering three sweet tropical mangos or kiwi for just $1, large seedless watermelons grown in Indiana for $1.49 each, two green bell peppers or cucumbers for $1, three pounds of green cabbage for $1, and two pounds of your choice among red, rose, Yukon gold, or Russet baking potatoes for $1. The items on sale will change from week to week, but the availability of quality items on the cheap will continue at Fresh Thyme.
Earth Fare – Earth Fare encourages you to subscribe to their website to receive ongoing deals and coupons. You can access one such coupon by clicking our Earth Fare link:

Georgetown Market – You can certainly shop for deliciously healthy items at Georgetown Market, but we’ll wrap up this post by referring you to the FREE classes Georgetown Market offers.
