The RUNDOWN on Thrive Market

Volume 60

November 1, 2017


WHAT IT IS: An e-commerce store that sells organic and non-GMO groceries at wholesale prices.

WHY WE LIKE IT: Looking for high-quality and affordable natural and healthy products? Thrive Market is a great option for buying your favorite organic brands, gluten-free or vegan products, and hard-to-find items—all at a discount. And best of all, they’re shipped straight to your door! Launched in 2014, the company has grown quickly and now carries more than 4,000 items including food, pet care, and household products.

Thrive Market is a membership-based program (similar to Costco)—its members are known as “Thrivers”. The company’s mission is to make “healthy living affordable and accessible for all”, so for each membership purchased, they provide a free membership for a low-income family, teacher, veteran, or first responder. The company also tries to pack your groceries in as few boxes as possible to reduce their carbon footprint. Nice efforts on both fronts!

HOW MUCH IT COSTS: It’s free to register and you usually get a discount of 15 to 30% off your first purchase. Once you’ve made that purchase, you get a free 30-day membership trial. The cost for a one-year membership is $59.95. You can cancel anytime.
NOW, TAKE THE FIRST STEP: Visit* or download on iTunes or Google Play. Register and place your first order via the website or app. Thrive Market ships to all addresses in the contiguous U.S.
