Thrive market
health Food Delivered to your RV

Thrive Market has been a blessing for us as full time RVers. We are very careful about what we eat. We truly believe you are what you eat, and you are what you eat, eats. 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 easiest thing on an RV. 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.

It’s been 4 years since we first joined (we started long 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

  1. Will ship to wherever you are in the USA (which is awesome for full time RV’ers).
  2. Thousands of name brand or store brand products for pantry, household, pets, and personal care.
  3. Shop online – so you can add items to your “grocery cart” as you need them.
  4. 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).
  5. 25% – 50% off of typical grocery store prices, sometimes more!
  6. Low annual membership fee (very similar to a Costco or Sam’s Club membership fee)
  7. Option to donate a % of your total order to a family in need. Feed families in need as you shop.

This last month we tried a new process for ordering with Thrive Market. We originally ordered what we needed as we needed it, and would coordinate delivery with our next camping site or location. It would pan out to be about 2 – 3 deliveries per month. However, that started to become a hassle. Now, we’re ordering a whole months worth of food and products at one time. It’s more money upfront of course, but it saves us from having to order and plan out deliveries every week or every other week. Important side note. We have a huge pantry which allows us to order this way and store a whole months worth of food at at time, a smaller rig this may not be the best strategy.

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!

As you can see, Thrive Market has pretty competitive pricing, especially compared to the average grocery store item saving anywhere from 25% – 50%. 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. And many times the cheaper price requires you to buy in bulk, which isn’t ideal for full time RV living.

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. Don’t forget to use our link to get $20 off your first order when you join.
