My top 50 best Thrive Market products that I purchase again and again!
I’ve been a Thrive Market member for over 8 years now, so I have quite a bit of experience with the company and the products offered.
Today I’m going to share what I consider to be some of the best products on Thrive Market, or at least the ones I buy again and again.
But first let’s clear up some questions…

What is Thrive Market?!
First of all, you might be wondering what on earth Thrive Market is! It’s basically an online grocery store that offers healthy food at a discount from retail prices.
Think of Whole Foods meets Costco, but all online.
They have a wide selection of organic products and other high quality foods. So if you find your local grocery store lacking in the organic foods department, Thrive Market might be a good fit for you.
Is There a Fee to Shop at Thrive Market?
Yes, Thrive Market has an annual membership fee like Costco. But they now offer 2 membership options: You can choose a monthly Thrive Market membership plan if you want to give it a try before committing to the whole year.
The yearly membership is $59.99, and the monthly membership is $12.
But if you’re a low-income family (including students, teachers, veterans, nurses, and first responders), Thrive also offers a one year free membership (details here)!
I’ll answer a few more questions at the end of this post, but without further ado, here are my top 50 favorite items to buy on Thrive Market!
The Thrive Market brand powdered sugar is a great price for organic powdered sugar, and it’s certified fair trade. Another great options is the Wholesome Organic Powdered Sugar, which is a slightly better price.
Thrive Market has some of the best prices on Jovial einkorn flour, and I like to get the all-purpose einkorn flour. I use it for biscuits, Dutch baby pancakes, pizza crust, etc.
Thrive also offers a 32 ounce jug of maple syrup, but I usually use our homemade maple syrup, so I don’t need to purchase.
I like that their baking soda comes in a bag instead of a box. It feels like it would stay fresh longer than an opened box. I buy cheap baking soda from the grocery store for cleaning, and keep my Thrive Market baking soda for baking.
They also carry Bob’s Red Mill baking soda.
I recently upgraded to the 10 pound bag of Redmond Real salt, but before that I purchased many bags of it from Thrive Market. It’s my favorite everyday salt.
Again I find the packaging for the Thrive Market corn starch much more convenient that the boxes that some other brands use. I would love a more eco-friendly option…perhaps a cardboard canister with a lid?
The Equal Exchange cocoa powder is quite pricy, but it’s worth it for me to purchase fair trade cocoa. I sometimes purchase it when it goes on sale at a local health food store, but when it’s not on sale it’s a better price on Thrive Market.
It’s not super easy to find an ethically produced vanilla bean paste, so I was so happy when I first discovered this one on Thrive Market. I love adding it to lattes, iced drinks, whipped cream, etc.
I have purchased so many rolls of this unbleached parchment paper. It’s been a favorite for years and years.
This is simply an amazing price for organic, ethically produced vanilla. It’s cheaper than Great Value vanilla extract if you purchase the 8 ounce bottle (I always get the 8 ounce bottle).
I love that the Thrive Market brand coconut milk only contains 2 ingredients: organic coconut extract and water. Other brands have additives which I prefer to avoid when possible. The Thrive coconut milk is also ethically sourced.
I LOVE Jovial diced tomatoes. They’re so handy for throwing together a quick meal. I have seriously bought so many jars from Thrive. I love that they come in glass jars. They also have crushed Jovial crushed tomatoes and whole tomatoes.
Again, I really appreciate that the Bionaturae tomato paste comes in glass jars. I rarely use a full jar of tomato paste at one time, and it’s much easier to store in the jar than is a tube or can. Note that they updated the packaging since I took the above photo!
I’m not a huge oat milk drinker, but I highly recommend the Thrive Market brand oat milk because it has such simple, clean ingredients. There’s literally only 2 ingredients: water and organic oats! Note that Thrive calls is oat beverage, not oat milk.
You can make your own oat milk barista blend from it as detailed in my Oat Milk Latte post.
It can be tricky to find mirin in my little town that doesn’t also contain added sugar. So I’m very glad I can get it on Thrive Market. I use it all the time to season meat (see the almost empty jar?).
This is another one I use all the time for seasoning meat, cooking shiitake mushrooms, etc. The Napa Valley Naturals toasted sesame oil is my favorite I’ve tried so far. I go through it regularly.
Yet another ingredient that I use for seasoning a lot. The Thrive Market brand is a great price for organic rice vinegar, and it’s ethically sourced!
No, this isn’t the cheapest avocado oil on the market. But again, I appreciate that it’s ethically sourced! I’ve gone through many bottles.
They also carry the Primal Kitchen avocado oil.
I really like the Bonafide organic chicken broth for cooking. It’s not a sipping broth, so it’s not as concentrated as the Kettle and Fire chicken bone broth. But the ingredients are really good. They also have a salted version that’s made with Celtic Sea Salt!
This is actually a little bit better price than what I can get in the bulk section of our local health food store. I like that it’s grown in California.
For a super speedy meal, I like to have these pre-made pizza crusts on hand. The ingredients are really good – they use organic extra virgin olive oil!
When I purchase canned beans, I like to get Eden Organic because they’re soaked overnight and pressure cooked. This makes them more digestible. These are nice to have on hand for a quick soup.
This is a newer discovery for me, but I adore it. It’s kind of like furikake. It’s wonderful on ramen, rice bowls, scrambled eggs, etc.
Like their avocado oil, the Thrive brand soy sauce isn’t the absolute best price for organic soy sauce. But I do like it, and it’s convenient to add to my order when I’m running low.
I cannot live without this. Okay, that’s a little dramatic. But this gochujang is so good. I love mixing a little with some grass-fed butter to have with rice bowls. YUM.
I like these seaweed snacks because they use EVOO to roast them. My kids love them, I love them, everyone loves them! 😉 I get the 6 pack original flavor.
A while back I started keeping a snack basket on hand so the kids could easily get an afternoon snack for themselves. These cheddar bunny snack packs are always popular.
I like to have these as an option for a good-quality fat option. They come in a 6-pack of snack bags.
I also like to have a high protein option, like these mini beef sticks. If you or your kids have a hard time finishing a full sized beef stick, these are a great option!
I LOVE Jovial einkorn cookies! The ingredients are fantastic, they use fair trade cocoa powder, and they aren’t sickeningly sweet.
I prefer sparkling water flavored with real fruit juice instead of “natural flavoring” – it’s more satisfying to me! This mango sparkling water from Sanzo is one of my favorites. I like making matcha mocktails with it.
This matcha powder actually won my blind matcha taste test. It’s a good deal, and tastes great!
If you don’t drink (like me) but would like to experience the taste of a grown-up drink, this bubbly rose is a fun one!
Going into cold season, it’s nice to have this nasal spray on hand. I recently got the Xlear nasal spray for my son as recommended by my dentist, but I haven’t purchased it on Thrive (yet).
This is one of my favorite lip balms. Living in Minnesota in the winter, you NEED something to keep your lips from cracking. I like the mint version, but my kids like the plain version (it doesn’t feel “spicy” like the mint one).
I love the ingredients in this toothpaste, and that it’s glycerin-free. Hopefully they’ll start carrying the kid version of Thrive, because the mint flavor is too spicy for my kids.
I know you get a better floss with traditional floss, but sometimes floss picks are just easier. These ones from Primal Life are made with charcoal, and the handles are biodegradable.
These dishwasher pods are so convenient. I’ve been happy with how they clean my dishes as well. The Seventh Generation dishwasher pods are nice too.
But I switch it up and use dishwasher detergent powder as well. I’m not a fan of the dispenser on powder boxes (it’s so messy!). The Seventh Generation powder is actually more expensive than the Rosey pods. The Rosey dishwasher powder is significantly cheaper then the Seventh Generation powder, and I prefer the packaging.
This is my go-to liquid dish soap. I like that it’s unscented.
I really like the If You Care coconut husk scrubbing sponges for washing my dishes. You don’t have to worry about it scratching up your pots, and it’s made in Canada! I also like their walnut scour pads.
These are the dish rags that I use in my kitchen. They’ve held up really well!
Sometimes you want a little extra cleaning power than just soap and water. That’s where these cleaning vinegar wipes come in! I like that they’re more natural than most.
I’ve been trying out laundry detergent sheets, and I’ve been pretty happy with these from Good JuJu. It’s nice to not have a bulky jug of laundry detergent on top of my dryer. I also like the Rosey laundry detergent powder.
I switched out nearly all of the hand wash in our house to the f.a.e. foaming hand wash this past year. The foam keeps the sinks cleaner than traditional hand soap. I like that you can buy bulk refills. The pumps themselves can get stuck down, but I suspect this is from misuse from the kids.
This is another one I like to have in the kids’ snack basket. I like that they’re made with coconut oil.
These are a more recent discovery for me, but I have fallen hard for them! My sister introduced them to me. I love the flavor and sweetness level! I also appreciate the size – perfect for if you want just a small bite of sweetness. Or you can have two if you want a bigger treat!
Okay, I actually have 52 favorites on this list! These almond butter cups are a great alternative to the overly sweet peanut butter cups you usually find at the store.
These are another great snack that isn’t sickeningly sweet. Can you tell what my sweetness preference is? I like the added saltiness too.
So there you have it: my top 50 favorite Thrive Market products! If you have any favorite products from Thrive Market, make sure to let me know in the comments!
Now I’ll answer a few more questions…
Is Thrive Market the Same as Wholefoods?
Nope! Thrive Market is not affiliated with Wholefoods.
Thrive Market is an all online marketplace, which means it doesn’t offer fresh produce like Wholefoods. It does have a frozen section, however.
Is Thrive Market Cheaper than Walmart?
That totally depends on the particular item you’re shopping for. Sometimes the same product will be a lower price at Walmart than on Thrive Market. However, Walmart obviously doesn’t carry the Thrive Market branded products, so they aren’t available at Walmart.
And there are other brands and products that Walmart doesn’t offer that are available on Thrive Market.
Also, Thrive regularly has sales, whereas they’re more rare at Walmart. Thrive also offers Thrive Cash on certain items, or if you buy multiples of certain items.
You can also opt to have items auto-ship to save the most money by getting an extra percentage off.
How Fast is Thrive Market Shipping?
Shipping times will obviously vary from state to state, but I have found that Thrive Market shipping is pretty fast. It usually beats Amazon, though Amazon has stepped up the shipping speed game lately.
They offer free shipping for orders over $49, and it’s just $5.95 if the total is under that.
