Our Mission

Here at Thyme & Season and The Common Bond Markets our staff is dedicated and focused on customer value. We promise to always go above and beyond for you our customer; by selecting the highest quality products for our shelves, products that are good for people & our planet, sourcing local products that meet our standards, cultivating a space for learning through the exchange of information in our aisles and at our public wellness lectures.

We celebrate that the battle for racial equality has come a long way and acknowledge that there is still much work to be done. We are dedicating ourselves to doing the work of anti-racism by nurturing inclusion, equity, health, and safety through continued education, introspection, and improvement. 

No matter your race, gender orientation, religious affiliation, or age we welcome all to shop at our stores. We hope you will join us in treating each other with dignity and respect.

It is our hope that the stores can be a place of healing for mind, body, and spirit.

We wish you continued health and wellness from Thyme & Season and The Common Bond Markets.

Sustainable Abundance

Did you know? It’s cheaper on average to buy bulk foods vs. packaged foods. Buying bulk reduces packaging waste and sustainability matters to us here at Thyme & Season. That’s why we use BioBag compostable bags in our bulk department (no plastic bags here). (link to sustainability commitments page or paragraph) We acknowledge that there’s always more to improve upon when it comes to sustainability, but we want you to know that when you shop with us you’re supporting sustainable practices. (put this sentence in sustainable paragraph)

Our bulk bins are packed fresh and ready for you to take home exactly the amount you need. We have a variety of bulk items, including flour, beans, lentils, nuts, trail mixes, granola, a huge selection of herbs, loose leaf teas, and more! So help the planet, save a little money, and check out what our bulk section has to offer.
