Who doesn't love trader joes?

Don't be scared off by people who say this place is expensive. I heard that so much that it kept me from going here for fear of another Capella or Sundance. It is the cheapest food in town, and you won't be scratching your head trying to choose between 8 different brands of ketchup. They have tons of unique items that no other grocery store sells, and I have never looked at a price here and thought to myself "that's too expensive" as I do in every other grocery store. Unsalted options and tons of vegan options, great hummus, great salsa, and the produce albeit limited depending on the time of year, is always a great price. Where else do you get 6 organic kiwi's for 1.99$ for instance? You'll maybe get 3 elsewhere if you're lucky. I just bought 18 ounces of Blueberries for 3.99$ today, where else will you find that? And not a sale price by the way...
It's really crowded in there usually, and they seem to get rid of a lot of the items I really like (Tomato Chutney that was amazing for instance). But this place is a 5 star spot all the way. It's between here or the south eugene Market of Choice for best grocery spot in town, everything else pales in comparison.
Unique Food, Price, Service
Always Crowded (can't blame 'em)
