Market Friday goes to Costco

in marketfriday •  last year 

We usually like to go to Costco on Friday morning to stock up on things. I thought I would share a few photos for Market Friday #marketfriday as initiated by @dswigle

This is one of the big warehouse type stores that you need a membership to get in. There are many good deals on things and the products are of high quality imho.

I’m impressed with the shear size of the store with several layers of pallets of products stacked up towards a very high ceiling. There are some nice skylights in the ceiling that give natural light.

Some of the products come packed in a lot of plastic so in general the local food co-op is where we purchase the fresh produce. You can find some good deals here though. I was hungry for some watermelon because of seeing it on someone’s post.

I was amazed at the size of the walk in refrigerator the first time I saw it. There are lots of fresh salads mixes here that are really good and come ready to eat.

The shopping carts are really large. Some people fill them up a lot more than we do. For as many people that come shopping, checking out and paying for the items usually goes pretty fast.

There is a small restaurant in the store too that has really good cheese pizza slices. They are nice to eat with some of the free sauerkraut.

Although I like the pricing and quality of the store the parking lot can be a bit hard to negotiate when everyone is shopping.

The days of the corner grocery stores are gone.

Oh yes! Costco is one of my go-to places when I need copious amounts of things. Thank you for being a part of #MarketFriday!

Costco and Sam's Club are just like the little cities aren't they? They are so huge and so big it's unbelievable. The first time I walked into that walk-in refrigerator I could not believe it, however their merchandise in there was pretty fresh So I was happy with it. The only problem I have with a place like that is you have to buy in big bulk and a lot of times I don't need in big bulk. A few things but not that many.

I want you to know that you are the very first person to do a post on Costco and so I appreciate it because I can remember the first time I went in there and then there were pallets of product stacked to the sky. My eyes were like a kid at Christmas time. I don't think I've ever seen that much food in my life.

You have a pretty nice cart full of food and I dare say that I wouldn't mind coming to your house to eat. The parking lot can be a little hairy at times but for the most part I go in there really earlier right before they close.

If I go back home to Connecticut we still have lots of Corner Grocery Stores, but here in the Washington DC area the big box stores rule. Thank you so much for being a part of Market Friday I enjoyed reading your post.

HY friend @lightsplasher how are you and today, we wish you healthy healthy only, ...

  ·  last year (edited)

the food I'm wondering in your basket is @lightsplasher hanaya watermelon, the other is not where I live

CostcoCart.jpg

It is a seedless watermelon that is very tasty and easier to eat in one meal because of the smaller size.

  ·  last year (edited)

It would be nice if I could have all the food in the container, surely all the food would not have the slightest dirt, hopefull @lightsplasher brothers are always healthy let alone often buy a meal packed like this.

The food quality is very good. It is fun to shop there.

  ·  last year (edited)

Ooooo it was so much fun we could enjoy a healthy meal ,, brothers @lightsplasher often shop at that store,

Oh man now I am hungry!!! Looks like you found some good stuff! I miss not having one (or even Sam's Club) nearby. Always fun to see you in the tag!

Thank you. I used to shop at Sam's at one time but there aren't any around where I am living now. I think the two of them are very similar. Lots of stores are closing I've noticed. I don't think Costco will though, it seems to be doing pretty good business.

Sauerkraut on pizza ... why have I never thought of that. It sounds really delicious. Haven't been to Costco in years but I remember the samples being the hi-light. Do they still do that?

They often have samples on the weekends especially when the market is busy during the holiday season. I'm not that found of the samples but sometimes I like them.

Very great market with complete with fresh fruits and other thing we need, where is location of this market mr @lightsplasher? Success always for you, thank you very much for your attention and support to me, I have upvote and resteem your post to more than 2700 my followers...

You can find many of these markets around the Pacific Northwest in the US. It seems like Sam's Club (a similar market) was more popular in the Midwest in the US. I'm not sure how widespread these markets are around the rest of the country.

Thank you mr @lightsplasher, US is the greatest economy in the worl

Costco has been there for decades ;).. love it there. Every time when I visited US, I would definitely stop by Costco.

Not anymore though, coz no longer travel.

I haven't traveled as much for years. The airport is difficult and not as fun to go through. I still do a lot of car trips and camping though.

hi my friend, have been my post two days very quiet without your presence mate, I really hope that my friend stay present to my post thank you for your kindness buddy, best wishes from me,

Best wishes, I hope you are doing fine with everything.

so great my dear friend @lightsplasher in this greatest shop also seems very luxurious and beautiful I am also very amazed to see it and I also seem to see the stuff very much once and full and more great all its complete and there are also fruit- and I am very happy to see his thanks my best friend @lightsplasher

Thanks my friend, the shop is a fun one to visit, there are many good things to eat there.

Watermelon fruit is very good for health, if there are sebahagian people who have high blood pressure, watermelon fruit is the solution, can also make the skin brighter, I also really like the watermelon.

Today's friend I found this flower by using galaxy J7 + how do you think friends

Nice photos - very tropical looking flowers.

Thanks my freinds

hello my friend @lightsplasher, I am very impressed with what you share with us today, because I can see a well organized market and all materials wrapped in plastic. it is very fresh and hopefully you are always healthy by eating fresh things like this. image I am very hungry to see there watermelons there, because I also have a small but fruitless watermelon plant, still waiting for a few more weeks, because my watermelon plants are blooming, and this is a watermelon blossom I took from my own garden. . image

Nice, fresh garden grown watermelon sounds very tasty. I grew one one time when I was living in a different area but have not had much luck growing them where I live now. The weather seems to be changing though so I might try to grow watermelon again some time.

image

I think all the Fast food there is wrapped very neatly. Thank you friends for sharing today

It is almost wrapped up a little too neatly, lol. The extra plastic waste is my only objection to it. I like to bring reusable bags and shop local for many fruits and vegetables when I can. The prices are lower when you buy large amount in Costco though.

hi my friend i really like the way you post this post, the story my buddy wrote, and the picture in post it, it tells about our daily work, that's very amazing, I really liked it

Thank you my friend.
