Thrive Market for RV’ers
I am really excited to be sharing Thrive Market with you all today! Dennis and I are very careful about what we eat. We truly believe you are what you eat, and you are what you eat, eats (say that ten times fast)! Even on the road, we try to eat as local as possible choosing organic, non-gmo, sustainably farmed food. We definitely go out of our way to find farmer’s markets, small or independent farms and co-ops to get the milk, eggs, or veggies straight from the source! But finding quality products isn’t always the easies thing on an RV. It can be a challenge to find the products we like all the time. There aren’t always health food stores around, and when there is, it can be super pricey! So when we first heard about Thrive Market, an online marketplace for healthy, sustainable, and organic food and household products delivered to your door (wherever that may be) we had to try it out! Did I mention their products are typically 25% – 50% less than most health food stores? Can I get an AMEN?
It’s been 2 years since we first joined (we started before full time RV’ing), and continue to be very happy customers. We actually like Thrive Market even more now that we’re on the RV full time because it means we have the quality products we love, no matter where we are in the country. Take a look at the video below to learn more about Thrive Market, some of the products we love and use (I actually open up the box and go through their amazing stuff), and share with you how you can join if you’re interested.
Amazing right!? I’m sure you can see by now why Thrive Market is an awesome program for full time RV’ers who like to eat and purchase healthy products.
Why Thrive Market is Great for Rvers
- Will ship to wherever you are in the USA (which is awesome for full time RV’ers).
- Thousands of name brand or store brand products for pantry, household, pets, and personal care.
- Shop online – so you can add items to your “grocery cart” as you need them.
- Can find unique and hard to find products that meet any and all dietary restrictions or preferences (which is great when there are no health food stores anywhere around).
- 25% – 50% off of typical grocery store prices, sometimes more!
- Low annual membership fee (very similar to a Costco or Sam’s Club membership fee)
- Option to donate a % of your total order to a family in need. Feed families in need as you shop.
I wanted to break down some price comparisons even further, not just on the food products we love and use so you can see how great it is for any health food lover!
**All Amazon prices are with “Amazon Prime Pantry” so you would need to be a prime member to get prices listed here.

As you can see Thrive Market has pretty competitive pricing, especially compared to the average grocery store item. I only found 1 product in the grocery store while I was preparing for this post that was cheaper than on Thrive Market and that’s because it was on sale. I ended up buying at the store because it was cheaper. There were a few items on Amazon prime pantry that were cheaper than Thrive. For example, King Arthur’s flour, and Tom’s deodorant. However there were several items I searched for that were not available in Amazon prime pantry at all like Kashi Cinnamon Harvest Cereal, Coconut Aminos, or Wild Caught Tuna. If it’s easier or makes more sense to buy some items on Thrive and some on Amazon prime pantry then do what’s best for your family and your needs. We feel it’s easier just to order from one place and I don’t have to worry about buying extreme bulk (like 6 apple cider vinegars which is what they wanted for that price…) or them not having the product I want Moral of the post. Shop with Thrive Market!
If you are already a Thrive Market member or if you end up joining, please share your experience with us! It would bring us so much joy to know other’s experiences with thrive.
We are Dennis and Liz! We’re two travel loving, real estate investing, foodies exploring North America full time in a Grand Design fifth wheel toy hauler. We share our lessons learned as full time RV’ers, travel tips and tricks, and the best places to eat and see in the US with you!
Want to RV full time but aren’t sure what state to choose as your domicile? See what your domicile options are and what to consider before picking a state.
Wonder what options there are for affordable health insurance for RV’ers? We go over 5 different nationwide PPO plans, what they cost, and what they cover.
After two years of full time RVing, we decided it was time to downsize and simplify. So we made it official, and sold our Grand Design Momentum 328M Toy Hauler Fifth Wheel to an amazing couple that will be making it their home!
