Cramped and crowded space

3 Posted on 02 / 13 / 2014

This Trader Joe's is always bustling with way too many people and cars. The location is close to the downtown area, but it's right off Wisconsin Ave. There is limited parking in a parking deck, but it's convenient if you go at the right time.

This location offers the standard items that one would expect at a Trader Joe's - plenty of non-dairy milk options, vegan frozen items (veggies, fruits, prepared entrees, fake meat/ meat substitute), vegan prepared foods (fake meat, salsa, hummus, wraps, sushi), vegan pantry items (pasta, grains, cookies, chips, chocolate, beans, energy/ granola bars, dried fruit, nuts) and some decent produce. However, the produce always seems to be in short supply, even for a Trader Joe's.

With the long lines and crowded space, I generally would prefer another TJ over this one.

Pros: Good number of vegan staples , Prices
Cons: Pre-packaged produce, Short supply of produce
