Continuously Updated (latest addition on October 17, 2020)! While you might not need a 2-liter bottle of olive oil (or maybe, you do?), Costco is a great deal for buying products in bulk. And they do carry some fantastic dairy-free brands that you might just want to stock up on. This list includes top dairy-free finds, with many vegan, plant-based, and gluten-free options.

Over 75 Dairy-Free Foods for Your Costco Shopping List

Despite their massive floor space, Costco is relatively quick to swap out products that aren’t strong sellers. So it’s important to support brands that you like, and be aware that some of these products could disappear from their shelves. We’ve listed the products below by department to make your shopping experience easier.

Allergen Note: All of the products listed here were dairy-free by ingredients at the time of our review. Ingredients are subject to change, so always read the ingredient statement. If you are dealing with a severe or sensitive food allergy, you must contact the manufacturer to discuss their processes and decide if a food is safe for your needs. All foods are at some degree of risk for potential cross contamination with food allergens, so you cannot rely exclusively on labels. This list is a general guide, and must not replace your own due diligence.

Availability Note: The inventory at Costco can also vary from region to region, so you might not find some of these items locally. BUT, you might make other dairy-free discoveries at your local store. Please leave a comment with your favorite Costco finds. We’re happy to add your picks to these lists! Also, you can drop product requests in the Suggestion Box at your local Costco.

Dairy-Free Basics: Costco has many items that are naturally dairy free, like fresh, frozen, and canned versions of produce, meats, and more. They also have ample pantry staples, from pasta to sugar. This list primarily covers specialty items and types of foods that often contain dairy.

Costco Dairy-Free Food Court Options

Feeling peckish? They reportedly have several dairy-free options at the Costco food court, but request the allergen information before you order to verify. At last check, these items could be ordered dairy free:

  • Fruit Smoothies
  • Vegan Acai Bowl
  • Vegan Al Pastor Salad (our local store did not have this on the menu)
  • Hot Dog
  • Polish Dog (east coast)
  • French Fries (some locations)
  • Churros

Please note that many Costco stores are serving a limited menu in 2020 due to limited restaurant services in most states. Hopefully all selections above will return!

  1. We have a Costco membership because of all the “safe for us” options they have but now that I see you’re list, I’m going to have to look and see if they have more at our local store. It looks like the list grew!
