    Organic produce and local fish. That's about all I buy from there. There is way too much olive oil in their huge jugs, and I don't like their meats.

    We have both, but BJs is closer so I shop there. I buy their ground bison, and they do have packages of Applegate Farms lunch meats.

    Spinach, other produce if it looks good (brussel sprouts, mushrooms, asparagus, sugar snap peas), smoked salmon, ahi, scallops, p roscuitto, organic chicken, australian lamb, organic milk, berries, almonds, pecans, walnuts, organic olive oil, organic cheeses, kerrrygold butter, organic butter, organic eggs (when our ladies stop laying), macadamia nuts, cashews, organic apples, organic salsa, organic canned tomatoes. On the occasional list: beef, bacon, jerky,... Oh and batteries, lightbulbs, some vitamins, etc.etc. And of course, wine, beer, and single malt scotch with an occasional bottle of Patron just in case of emergencies.

    It is about the only shopping experience that I will tolerate.

I try not to buy any meat in the store, with the exception of the local grass fed beef that Whole Foods sells. Also, I buy their chickens in the winter. They are organic and anti-biotic free, but I don't think they are raised properly with a proper chicken diet.
    Don't quote me on this but I believe organic meat is automatically antibiotic free.

    False, they are some of the lowest rated eggs actually: The Cornucopia Institute

    These look to be somewhat close though: The Cornucopia Institute

    Let's see: coconut milk, organic butter and Kerrygold butter, organic bacon, frozen wild blueberries, frozen wild sockeye salmon fillets, frozen organic brocolli, organic whole chickens, organic ground beef (just bought it in a pinch, it doesn't say grass fed), scallops. I can't get organic whole milk or whole fat yogurt, those are the two things I wish I could find. And I like the size and the yellower yolks of my Wal-Mart's organic eggs better, Costco's always seem so small.

    I am curious and would like you to do an experiment. Put it in the fridge overnight and see what happens to it.
