29 Organic Foods You Can Buy at Costco

Each year during No Spend Month I do an assessment of our spending and ask myself, is this $55 Costco Membership really worth it? So far, each year I discover that yes it is easily worth the cost for all of the money I save on groceries.

The trick is to shop with a list and make sure I only buy the healthy real foods that are on it. Otherwise, it is very easy to come out with a bunch of junk, both food and other items, that we don’t need.Surprisingly though, it isn’t all giant boxes of frozen taquitos and 6 pound bags of Frosted Flakes. There are actually quite a few organic foods available at Costco.

  3. Where is your Costco located? I have not seen most of those Organic items in our stores here in Los Angeles.

    • We are in Washington. It seems like every area has different items available. I do have to make sure to keep looking for organic options because sometimes they don’t stick out and there seem to be new ones all the time. We just started getting the chicken thighs at our store.

    • I would love to be able to get frozen broccoli here! It’s so convenient on busy nights when you still want to get something healthy on the table!

  6. Every Costco is different, even within a state. But luckily I live where you live and enjoy many of those organic things from Costco. I especially like in the summer when they have organic peaches!

  9. This makes me wish even more that we had a costco in the area! Thanks for sharing the list…maybe some day we’ll get a Costco here! :)

  10. Doesn’t this differ depending on WHICH costco you’re shopping from? I’ve found different states I’ve lived in have offered different amounts of organic food. But.. maybe that’s changed.

  11. This is awesome! I go sometimes with my MIL and usually come out with a ridiculously large bag of raw almonds – this is great to know I can keep an eye out for other stuff, too!

  12. Love this! I’ve never had a membership, but knowing there are organic foods at Costco makes me want one!

    Reply
  13. I wish we lived closer to a Costco. When we make it there, I usually get organic ground beef and whole chickens. They also have organic carrots, but pretty much everything else in conventional at the closest one to us.

  14. I didn’t know Costco carried organic pastured butter!! Which one do you shop at? I’ll have to see if the Woodinville one carries it…

    Reply
  15. oh, I should also add that Organic Edamame is DA BOMB DOT COM at Costco!! Love it!

  16. As others noted, availability depends widely on the individual store. There are two Costco stores in Indianapolis. One has much more organic and gluten-free options than the other. Unfortunately, the one closest to me carries less. I just ask and write suggestions for the comment box as often as possible. Organic raisins please!!!

  17. Carrot juice. I can’t find it anywhere else. Imagine that living right here where it is made.

    Reply
  18. Canned tomato sauce is from Costco is really good!!! To be even more organic you should test out making your own tomato sauce. It really isn’t that difficult at all. My hubby loves it :)

  19. I get: frozen mixed veggies, udon noodles, flour, hotdogs, and frozen broccoli that are all organic. Stores definitely vary in what they carry. Southlake, TX store carries many more organic items then the Rockwall, TX store and they are only 1 hour away from each other.
