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.

  2. I wish our Costco had more fresh organic fruits and vegetables like yours. I do like getting coffee, soymilk, and Better than Bouillon chicken base.

    1. 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.

    1. 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!

  10. 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! :)

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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...

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

    ReplyDelete
  17. 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!!!

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