Semi-upscale food at a casual price is what Derek and Shari Olson of Harvest Thyme Bistro expect diners to find at their new restaurant located in the Mall of Wadena (formerly the Village Emporium).


The bistro is a unique dining experience for locals, the Olsons said, and features fresh local, organic ingredients.

Derek, the chef, doesn't use any processed or packaged food or meats.

"Everything is whole food or made from scratch right here in our kitchen," Shari said.
