I've been asked by so many of you what some of my favorite Costco finds are. We are so fortunate to have a store that carries a TON of organic items and that is what I buy most frequently there. Being a family of only 4 and with limited freezer space, I don't get to take advantage of as many of the deals below as some of you will, but it was so fun to go in and search the aisles for Paleo and gluten-free compliant items!
Keep in mind that all Costco locations vary in what they carry and also cycle products through, so this list may be different from what you are able to locate at your local store.

I absolutely LOVE Love Beets! These are one of my favorite salad toppings.
5 dozen Organic Large Cage Free Eggs: $15.79

3.5 lb. Organic Summer Squash: $6.99
2 lb. Organic Broccolette: $5.49

32 oz. Organic Black Chia Seeds: $9.99

These are great for a snack or even added to a homemade trail-mix!

I use coconut sugar (a.k.a. palm sugar or coconut crystals) in a lot of my baking and sweetening needs in general! This is an incredible deal on this product!
64 oz. Organic Golden Flaxseed Meal: $7.89

You know me and my love for Stuffed Sweet Potatoes! So far I have 3 recipes for all of your stuffed sweet potato needs 🙂
You can find the recipes here!
Wow, I had no idea Costco has so many organic products! Seriously, I think the spouse and I only shop their for household paper products 😛
Each Costco has different options available. Mine does not have this many. I do take advantage of the ones they do have.
One trick to note at Costco is that when you see the price sign, note if there is an * after it. This signals to you that the item is either seasonal or on a trial basis and may not be back in the stores. If you are excited to see a product you love there, and it has the *, make sure to fill out the comment card on the way out to tell them so….or talk to the manager. They really DO listen!
I will look at my Costco closer when I’m there next time. I know mine carries many of theses but I didn’t think they had that much organic produce… and I buy much more at my local market weekly anyway!! Yay for me! Thanks for all of these great finds.
so many paleo options at your location!! Lucky Duck 🙂
I keep saying I need to get a costco membership.
Our CostCo in OH does not have this many organic options. I’d love to get my hands on that garlic for fermented garlic! Takes forever to get a big batch peeled!
So I’m already entered? Sweet! Nice list of goods.
Wow this is great! Thanks so much. Oh and I had no clue Costco sold Coco-roons, must check mine tomorrow!!
I love shopping at Costco!! This information is great for my shopping list!! Thank you for sharing!
I’ve been considering a Costco membership but now I’ll see if I win.
Love costco and the natural products has improved there.
I gotta admit…I luv Costco food samples. I’m not 100% organic, but i’m getting there. #Costcoorganic #Againstallgrain
i would love to know what your total bill was? i would love nothing more than to eat like this or purchase all of these items – but it is SO expensive………..would you be willing to share the cost? thanks
My local Costco does not have your book. I go there once a week and basically do most of my shopping there. However, they have made some changes that not necessarily work for the best. They still have good quality product but it will be nice if they have it on stock. They are also constantly discontinuing products after we fall in love with the product.
What a awesome chance to win a Costco membership!!
What a great post! Love Costco and love your books 🙂
Ive had Crohns for 16 years and recently had a flare up after 8 years of remission. Found your book at LOVE it. My parents are the owners/growers of Homegrown Organic farms (freeze dried blueberries and plum pictures you posted!) so excited to see this!!!

I love this post!
So sorry Rebecca! If you talk with a customer service member or fill out a card requesting certain products that you’ve found in other Costco stores, I’ve heard they’re pretty good at listening. 🙂
So sorry Kari! :/
As I mentioned in the commentary, anyone that is already a subscriber is automatically entered. 🙂
Thanks for the support Paula! I hear that Costco is pretty good at listening to their customers if you fill out a comment card or talk with a customer service member about wanting to see certain products on the shelves! 🙂
I’m hoping my local Costco carries that coconut sugar. Which Costco did you see it at?
Wow! Your Costco has WAY more organic options!!
Almost Getting it Together
Hi Danielle, I picked up your book at the library and love it so much I have to buy a copy next time I’m at Costco! I live in SF – do you mind if I ask which Costco this was at so I know which one to go to? 🙂
Please note that when a Costco item has an asterisk ( * ) next to the price, that means whenever the stock in front of you is depleted, they aren’t getting any more in. So next time you go in, you may not find any more – buy what you need at that moment. You will see that on the picture of your coconut sugar.
Just an FYI, if you don’t have or don’t want to buy a Costco membership, don’t despair! If you know someone that has a membership, ask them to buy you a Costco Cash Card! You can shop w/o buying a membership if you have one of those cards. Also, if you buy the upgraded membership that pays you back 2% in rewards, Costco will refund the difference between what you paid and what you earned or refund your membership entirely, if you aren’t satisfied. I believe the upgraded membership is $105 or $110 and I’ve never gotten less than that back in rewards, so my membership is free plus some! I usually get a refund of around $150. I buy 99% of our food at Costco, plus alcohol, business supplies, tires, etc. Costco has never failed me!!
Costco is awesome! 🙂
Of course! 🙂
Darn! I hear that if you talk with a Customer Service member or leave a comment card about things you’d like to see in your store, they’re pretty good about listening 🙂
Thank you Marilyn! I hear that if you talk with a Customer Service member or leave a comment card about things you’d like to see in your store, they’re pretty good about listening 🙂
Isn’t Costco awesome?! And thank you! I hope you’re enjoying the recipes. 🙂
Was really looking forward to travelling to the big city (San Antonio TX) from our rural location to join Costco and have access to all this great stuff. Finally made it there this month only to find that the three Costco stores in SA stock almost none of it. To add insult to injury, they don’t stock your book either, but they do have a really big stack of Paula Deen’s latest on how to become a Type ll Diabetic and get on diabetes medications, which she endorses, for the rest of your life. Guess the SA locations are stocked by, and for, the Bubba Tribe and not the Paleo Tribe. 🙁
Oh no! I’m so sorry. 🙁 I hear they are pretty good about listening to comment cards, so maybe find a customer service member and chat with them and write down your thoughts on a comment card!
I will certainly do that much at least. If there are any others of your tribe reading this from the San Antonio TX area who would like to see a healthier selection of produce, meats and snack items, I’d like to synergize efforts with them to get Costco’s attention on this matter. Seems to me that at least one of the three SA locations could be restocked with the healthier items you promoted as being available at your local Costco (and a healthier cookbook selection as well ;-). As a health care professional with military and civilian experience in the SA and south Texas area, I know firsthand the public health crisis of obesity, diabetes and all the related chronic conditions which are much more prevalent in this region, known to health care professionals unfortunately as “the stroke belt”. SA and south Texas consistently rates in the top percentiles of incidence of obesity, diabetes and all the rest of the entirely preventable diseases of affluence and lifestyle. If any region in the country could stand to benefit from the knowledge and behaviors you advocate for, and availability of the kinds of healthy food items you are fortunate to have in your local Costco, it is this area. It is very difficult to change minds and behaviors on this issue, as you well know, and it will take a concerted, coordinated and sustained effort to do so. It would be great to have Costco acting as a catalyst for healthy change instead of “dead weight” inertia for habits of disease, disability and death.
Awesome! I hope you found everything you were looking for!
I wish my Costco had all these products!
I hear if you write a comment card and/or talk to a customer service person and tell them what you’d like to see in your store, they’re good at listening!
