Foursquare Tips

  • Don't be afraid of the long line. It moves very fast.
  • You don't know what "rush hour" is until you've seen the Trader Joe's line at 5:30pm.
  • The friendliest grocery store on earth! The line is usually long, but it moves quickly. Further, the way the store is laid out is perfect to shop as you're waiting to check out. Genius :)
  • I like this trader joes. Convenient location, great selection, and helpful people.
  • Go buy the TJ bbq chicken pizza! it is amazing!
  • Peanut Butter filled pretzel bites. Yes, you read that right.
  • Cheaper than Whole Foods, good food and whacky employees what more could you ask of your grocery store.
  • Shop on weekend mornings before 10am - the local college students are still sleeping/hungover, so there's no line.
  • They don't sell wine here so you should go to Shaw's for alcohol instead. The line is a shit show 4-6pm on weekdays
  • Be prepared, the line is always huge
  • Cheaper and healthier than the food in Prudential Mall food court.
  • Best to come early to do your shopping than evening.
  • Small but always have great samples.
  • Very very small and staff aren't particularly helpful
  • It may be the smallest one in Boston, but the Red Sox are always beating the Yankees 9-2 @ the Back Bay Trader Joes! (see mural)
  • cheapest energy/Clif bars on the block
  • smallest trader joe's in existence, but still has a wide selection of items (very limited inventory.) avoid coming past 4 pm because it looks post-apocalyptic after the coming-home-from-work crowd
  • You can use Apple Pay; works great.
  • Check the line as you arrive. At times you just arrive and get in line and shop
  • Bananas and the amazing staff
