Soymilk is MOST affordable soymilk in Greater Boston - Edit

I buy my half gallons of soymilk at THIS Trader Joes for $2.88/each, and it's worth the trip.

Pros: Soymilk is most affordable in Greater Boston, Soymilk is only $2.88 per half gallon, Cashiers are friendly, fast, accurate, empathic

Cons: Very busy, Checkout lines can be long, but move very fast, Noisy neighborhood (but who notices?)

still my favorite grocery store - Edit

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
