When I started on my journey to become vegan (was first vegetarian), I was referred to Trader Joe's by a friend. This particular store is on the small side, but that's good, because that means I can get what I need quickly and get out. The employees are very nice, cordial and friendly, and very helpful. They always give the kids fruit stickers at the checkout, which they love. They have a very good selection, and I save money on the plant-based milks here. I go there at least once a week. Love my Trader Joe's!
