Thrive Market makes healthy food accessible to all at affordable prices.
Thrive Market is like an online grocery store. When compared to brick-and-mortar stores, it’s more like Trader Joe’s than anything else. It offers healthy and nutritious foods and products, but at affordable prices. The site favors organic and non-GMO food, and it aims to get them to you without you having to spend your whole paycheck at Whole Foods. The site works on a membership basis, so shoppers have to sign up in order to take full advantage of the marketplace. That costs $59.95 for a full year. With every membership, however, Thrive Market also helps sponsor a low-income American family.
If you’re not ready to sign up for a membership, Thrive Market lets you register for free. You can browse the marketplace — viewing all of the different prices and available products. You also receive 15% off your first purchase just for signing up, but then you’re forced to start a 30-day membership trial. You can cancel at any time, but if you like the service you’ll be charged the $59.95. For those with specific diets — gluten free, paleo, raw, etc. — it’s worth it to have access to an online grocery store that caters to your specific needs. In addition to the wide range of healthy food options on Thrive Market, there are also bath, health, beauty and home products. Check out the site to see if you can start saving on food while also eating healthier.
