What to Buy Organic at Aldi: 125+ Items for Your List

If you’ve shopped at Aldi in the past few years, you probably already know how amazing the deals on fresh, whole-food ingredients there are. However, if it’s been several years since you’ve checked out the discount grocery chain, you may be shocked to find all the great deals on organic items. Are you curious about what to buy organic at Aldi in 2020? Stick around then, because we have more than 100 items to fill your cart for your next #aldihaul!

We’re giving you a comprehensive look at (possibly) everything you can buy organic at Aldi. When you’re finished, put those groceries to work in one of our Aldi meal plans on a budget!

Gotta love a good #aldihaul 🙂

Real quickly before we get into the list, most of their organic products are under the Simply Nature Organic line. They also have dozens of Simply Nature products that aren’t organic, but still overall good choices when it comes to making better food choices. Remember, ORGANIC IS ALWAYS NON-GMO, but Non-GMO alone doesn’t mean it’s organic. Products, prices, and selection vary from region to region. Produce prices vary from season to season. (Find out more about how eating seasonally saves you money in this post.) To be clear… we don’t actually stock the shelves at Aldi, so if you see something here that you don’t have at your local store… don’t @ us!! We’re just the messengers.

Can you get all your groceries at Aldi?

Well, it depends on a lot of factors. While our family loves Aldi, we also shop local first (we typically have local beef, pork, and occasionally chicken in our freezer, and use local food markets, co-ops, CSAs, farmer’s market, etc. for any and everything we can. We also garden what we can, but are learning how to deal with deer who live on our property 😉 We are also fans of Kroger and even Walmart. I’m in southern West Virginia, so the prices you see in pictures will be from that region. Ali and Lindsey are in Tennessee, and Jodi is in Ohio, so they have additional options there.

Grape tomatoes

NOTE: I’ve noticed Aldi has moved toward using regional produce much more frequently when available. Check the box or container/ bag tag for a closer look.

We usually get our oats from a local health food store for $8.99/5-pound bag.

More on what to buy organic at Aldi

A few more quick notes about shopping at Aldi. (You can skip these if you’re a veteran Aldi go-er)

1.) Bring a quarter for your cart

One way Aldi keeps prices low is having fewer employees. They won’t have someone patrolling the parking lot for rogue carts.

(FYI- if you’re a germaphobe <like me> or your kid likes to lick carts while you’re strolling the aisles. <also me sometimes> you may also want to BYO cleaning wipe to give that thing a good scrubbing. P.S. Our newest Aldi has double buggies… so if you’re carting around multiple kids, this feature is AWESOME!!)

2.) BYOB

 (the second B=bag… but side note… you may want to pick up a six-pack of their beer while you’re there. They have some great seasonal brews if you’re into that sort of thing) You can buy paper bags for $0.07 or heavy-duty plastic ones for $0.10. I always try to keep a few reusable bags in the back of our car for Aldi trips. {A cooler like this is also handy.} You can also snag a few cardboard boxes while you’re shopping (ours keeps a big tower full of them) and just load your groceries in those. You’ll have to bag your own after you check out.

3.) Ad timing

Their weekly ads run Sunday-Saturday, but their “special buys” and any weekly meat specials start on WEDNESDAYs.  

We will try to keep this post as updated as possible since Aldi is constantly stepping up their organic grocery game. Tell us in the comments, what did we miss? What do you wish they carried organic but don’t yet? (Ground turkey and block cheese, please and thanks!)
