Holy Guacamole - Edit

Their produce is alright. They don't have the best apples, which is too bad, but they do have a nice variety of salads. Their cereal section is huge and it's my favorite part! They have a nice section dedicated to nuts and dried fruits. There pasta section is also very accommodating to my wallet. Not too expensive, equally affordable for all incomes.

Pros: large cereal section, friendly staff, affordable prices

Cons: terrible apples, fruit is expensive

A lot of hype - Edit

It seems like shopping at Trader Joes is some source of pride if you live in western washington. Don't get me wrong great store has a number of vegan items. Sometimes I feel like the prices are a little high compared to just going to Fred Meyer and Hagen where you can get the same product from the same suppliers for slightly less. The one thing that drives me away is the vegan products seem to be spread though out the store where other stores in the area keep the vegan stuff in the speciality section which makes it easy to find.

Pros: unique products, good selection

Cons: high prices, difficult to get to and from

Store ok - too much packaging - Edit

I love a lot of things about this store. Their frozen veggie mixes are good, good deals on frozen fruit, many of the staff are very friendly, you can get a small cup of coffee while you shop, some times they have tasty samples, good deals on beverages, charge per piece on some fruits and veggie, which is great for singles. The down side is the over packaging on a lot of vegetable items and they have a poor history with their seafood selection.

Pros: Lots of choices, Prices good, samples and coffee

Cons: excessive packaging, bad history on seafood items

GREAT! - Edit

I LOVE TJ's. Their vegan cream cheese is VERY good. They carry a good variety of vegan foods, that are usually labeled vegan. Check the ingredients list! I go here every week to get my basics they offers lots of veggies that are good quality and lot of nuts and dried fruit. The staff is ALWAYS great! As far as I can tell there are only 2 wraps they sell that are vegan but they are good. Wish they had more to go vegan food.

Pros: great service, good quality, low prices

Cons: Not a lot of "to go" vegan food
