    I am frustrated by Costco! If I drive down to Carmel Mtn or Poway I can find a variety of organic produce, but if I shop at the more convenient San Marcos (I’ve checked Vista, too) there is next to none. :-(
    when I can find organic blueberries at Costco I’m a very happy girl.

      Christine – We feel your pain!

      My bother has worked at Costco for the last 15 years, and he always likes to remind me that they intentionally don’t keep everything in stock all the time so you don’t rely on it. Sounds weird, but that business model must be doing something right ;)
