still my favorite grocery store

Posted on 05 / 21 / 2012

Like any other Trader Joe's location, but it's closest to my house, so I shop here most often. They have great specialty items and it's cheaper than the Shaws and Stop & Shop that are close by. This location also has a beer/wine section.

Lots of options for veg*ns. Some of my favorites:

* hummus (try the Edamame hummus, if you haven't yet!)
* middle eastern foods in the fresh shelves (tabouleh, stuffed grape leaves, etc)
* vegetarian burritos, frozen
* vegetable gyoza dumplings, frozen
* trail mixes
* Larabars

Also good deals on frozen organic vegetables and fruits (smoothies, anyone?!?). Organic bananas are 29 cents a piece, cheapest, healthy snack around :)

Unfortunately, the fresh vegetables are sometimes a hit or miss... sometimes I have to supplement at Shaws.

Best time to shop here: on weekdays 8:30am - 10am
Worst time to shop here: on weekdays 5pm-7pm, Sat and Sun afternoons... it gets crazy busy during those times!

Pros: reasonable organic produce, veg*n frozen convenience foods, friendly staff
Cons: sometimes the fresh produce looks iffy, crowded after work
