We've asked to no avail, but maybe we should do it more often and enlist our friends. Our local store seems to be really down-scale in the types of foods it carries. Lots a junk food, most definitely.

I just wish they would carry the Kerrygold butter in bulk!

If your local costco does not sell them, start requesting them embryo time you go in. I know that they can order cases of organic chicken, and if they know their customers want them, they will start selling them in store.

Lots of threads on what people buy at Costco, etc. Just pop the store name in the handy dandy search box at upper left. Here's the Costco search http://paleohacks.com/search?q=costco#axzz20pga46Yg

Costco stores seem to stock very different items, depending on the location. We buy ground bison and organic chicken when visiting my sister. Those items are not in our local costco. We also pick up fresh and frozen organic fruits and vegetables when they're available. Do what you would in any grocery store: read the signs, labels, and packaging very carefully and mostly forgo anything more than minimally processed.

Costco has (or had) organic ground beef at a really good price - $12 for three 1 pound packs. It's not entirely grass fed, iirc. BJ's or Costco are just like shopping at any conventional grocery store - only bigger.

Why would anybody do that? Costco sells meat, fruit, vegetables.

My local costco has Organic Ground Beef (fresh or frozen), Wild Caught Salmon @ 8.99/pound, Wild Caught Salmon Burgers (frozen), Canned Salmon, Organic Spinach and Spring Mix Lettuce, Coleman Chicken and Sausage. Best price on Avacodos, Almonds, and Kerrygold Cheese (if you can tolerate dairy) in the area.

From Costco I used to buy Wholly Guacamole (awesome stuff!), canned salmon (forgot the brand), frozen mixed berries, and a few differnt meat items in bulk that I divided up into single portions and froze.

I don't know if you'd really need a list, but more of an open mind. Like others have said, every location carries a slightly different mix.

The last things I got while I was there was romaine, eggs, water, Kerrygold butter, salmon, spinach, and coffee. You could also pick up olive oil and meats. I didn't look at meat last time I was there because I had quite a bit already. And sadly, I think all the bacon I looked at was still full of junk.

The Costcos in my town carry locally grown produce and meats in and amongst the stuff imported from Chile, Argentina, etc. The last time I bought lamb, it was from New Zealand. You just have to read the labels and get to know what is there. Every store carries a different inventory.
