Vegetarian Weekly Grocery List

I’m a big fan of Farmers Markets and CSAs, but I also need to pop into at least one grocery store a week to stock up.

{Side note: When I’m stocking up on pantry basics I order from Thrive Market. I’m slightly obsessed with their vegan, gluten-free, organic options. So many choices!!}

A mixed household – i.e. omnivore & vegetarian – Means a little planning is necessary to make sure that everyone gets what they need during the week. This is also when weekend meal prep becomes a total life saver. And time saver!

So here’s my vegetarian/omnivore weekly grocery list:

Produce:

Fresh fruits & vegetables are the bulk of my shopping every week. I like to get what’s local and in season when possible, though I’ll definitely seek out specific ingredients when I’m trying out a specific recipe.

Here’s an idea of the types of produce I’ll grab in a given week, though it always varies.

  • Zucchini
  • Tomatoes
  • Spinach & romaine lettuce
  • Broccoli, cauliflower & Brussels sprouts
  • Peppers
  • Cucumber
  • Cabbage
  • Green beans or sugar snap peas
  • Radishes
  • Onions
  • Potatoes or sweet potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Lemons & citrus
  • Berries
  • Apples
  • Bananas

Grains/Legumes/Seeds/Nuts:

  • Raw, Gluten-Free Oats
  • Chia Seeds
  • Quinoa, barley, brown rice, or faro
  • Hummus {I usually have 2+ tubs in the fridge at any given moment}
  • Raw almonds, cashews & walnuts {Occasionally pecans as well – Raw, unsalted}
  • Dried fruit {Blueberries, cranberries and/or raisins, without added sugar}

Animal Products:

Yes, I’m a vegetarian who cooks meat for my S.O.

  • Organic, free-range chicken breasts {Not that he cares about organic}
  • Organic, free-range eggs
  • Parmesan {His favorite dish is tomato basil chicken which takes about 20 minutes, so I keep all the ingredients on hand}

And where am I getting my goodies?

In addition to Thrive Market, my Eatwell Farm CSA, and the Ferry Building Farmers Market here in San Francisco, I also go to a health food store called Nature Stop in North Beach and Trader Joe’s. I absolutely love TJ’s!

    Funny. My list looks almost like yours!. I buy a tub of Mixed greens planted and harvested organically by a middle school in Espanola and sold at my local butcher’s. With those greens, the romaine and the rest of the ingredients I make a daily lunch salad. Instead of radishes I use daikon and I always use jicama and beets in my salads as well. Pepitas round out the ingredients. Like mother like daughter!

  2. I really like this. I’m not a vegetarian, but I love eating healthy and this looks delicious.
