Foursquare Tips

  • To all who watch idly as the cashier bags your stuff: you're holding up the line!
  • Always free samples at the back!
  • Don't be afraid to bag your own items.
  • No wine and beer at this location. Head to the one on memorial drive for that.
  • The Scandinavian Swimmers are addictive candy.
  • This is one of the bigger Trader Joe's.
  • The best avocados are loose. More expensive but bigger and fresher! Get ones with smooth skin and put them in a brown bag on counter until ripe!
  • Be cautious in the parking lot.
  • Salty processed food. Monoculture organic. Don't be fooled.
  • Always crowded but the produce is super fresh and the staff are friendly :)
  • Everything's good here!
  • There's private parking lots on both sides of the store. Just don't snag any of the medical center spots in the larger lot.
  • Be careful not to buy too many snacks and sweets instead of actual food.
  • Tiny parking lot, mornings are always quiet though.... never hard to park when the are first opening the doors.
  • Great grocery store. No liquor or beer tho.
  • Why does it tell me there is a great wine selection when I check in here? This Trader Joe's does NOT have a liquor license :(
  • Sold out of leeks. Last time it was lemons. Before that it was the chicken I usually get
  • Bananas 19 cents a piece!
  • Hard to park
  • Favorites: the meringues are great, try the wine salami (merlot and pinot noir), Joe's Cola, rack of lamb, and the white bean/basil hummus. Only dislike: spinach and feta pizza (no feta flavor at all)
