Love Trader Joe's, 10/16/2008

I like Trader Joe's because they have good products and a good value. My faves are the Lo Sodium Garden Patch Juice and the Balsamic Vinagrette dressing. I also buy the canned cat food because it... is great quality and inexpensive.

Fantastic shopping experience, 8/29/2008

Although not the largest Trader Joe's and it does get busy, still a fantastic selection, nice staff, constantly stacked shelves, plenty of parking for it location. Everything is reasonably priced and... you can find high quality produce and meats here at better than Ralphs prices. We get a majority of our groceries here, somethings like Yoplait you have to go somewhere else for. They have an amazing selection of dried fruits and nuts here. They keep the produce at temperatures they need to be to last the longest here and always keep in season stuff on hand. If you can't find a veggie or fruit, it probably means its not the best time of year for it for our location so getting it somewhere else would mean bad news. Produce seems to last the longest in the fridge coming from here than any other grocery store. Their floral and bread selections are very good too.

trader joes love

always clean and always well stocked sometime the fruit isnt of the highest quality, but i think that has more to do with being organic than them having a bad product really great customer service. a cereal i bought was WAY expired and i ate some and realized it and no questions asked when i returned it plus many apologies!

Great Deals Great Food

This place has the best deals all around. From their wine to their frozen entrees, you can't go wrong coming here. I like their samples that they give out every time I end up buying them because it's so creative, fast, convenient and taste wonderful. If you haven't been to traders joes, you are missing out.

My Favorite Grocery Shop!

I love Trader Joe's. This has to be my favorite place to go grocery shopping. For some items, you can get a really good deal.They have a lot of organic food for good prices. The frozen selection foods are great. They have a trader joe's version of naked juices for a really good price also. The best deal at trader joe's is the wines! Nothing can beat the 2 buck chucks (Charles Shaw wine). And they taste pretty good too! The workers are really friendly also.

Expect better prices than you may think, especially on the imported food. Produce is top-of-the line. Good organic variety.

Great organic and healthy eating

I love the variety of delicious food at Trader Joe's. They have great pizza dough and sauce for making your own pizza. I love their frozen dinner mixes, selection of unique cheeses and cheap wine. Their chocolate Mochi Balls or Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels make great desserts!

Friendly service.

Trader Joe's offers a variety of organic and fresh made food for a affordable price. They always have samples daily as well so it's fun to go. Plenty of imported beer and wine and delicacy. The clerks are always willing to help and answer questions which is a huge plus in my book.
