When it comes to grocery shopping, I always prefer to buy local when I can. The produce is without a doubt fresher than what’s in stores and you support your local farmer in the process. That said, you obviously can’t buy everything from your local farmer. There are many pricey specialty items that can really add up when shopping at your average grocery store. That’s where having a Costco membership really comes in handy. There are plenty of real food options available at Costco – IF you know what to look for. I’ve put together a Real Food Shopping Guide for Costco so that you can see a list of the things that I buy (or would consider buying) to help you out while you shop.
If you have any real food suggestions that I might have missed, please leave a note below in the comments and I’ll add it to the list. I’d love for you to be able to print this out and take it with you on your next shopping trip. Definitely bookmark this page as I plan to continue to update it with my Costco finds. Remember though, not every store will carry the same product – and many products will vary by season.
