Thread: Trader Joe's is coming to a corner near me!

    Default Trader Joe's is coming to a corner near me!

    We're supposedly getting a Trader Joe's grocery less than two blocks
    from my apartment. Right now, I can't even walk to the closest
    stupid market or "real" convenience store. The little corner drug
    store sells late dated milk $4 a loaf wonder bead and is not open
    after 5 pm or at all on Saturdays and Sundays.

    Will this be a good thing? Do you shop Trader Joe's? what do you
    like? what don't you like? How's the meat? fish? produce? selection?

    Congratulations! TJs is wonderful.

    Produce is good. Selection good. We like their organic soups, broths and
    simmer sauces. Oh, and "Two-Buck Chuck" wine. Not sure if you will get
    that where you are at. (I suspect it's the reason why they aren't in
    states like Oklahoma -- damned liquor laws). Interesting things in the
    freezer cases. We don't buy our meat there so I can't comment on it, but
    overall we've been very pleased with the quality and variety of the
    things they carry. Plus, it's fairly inexpensive (by California standards).

    I think you will be pleased!

    They don't seem to need to sell wine. The branches in Bethesda and
    Rockville, MD don't sell beer or wine. Mind you, my county has an
    interesting leftover from the compromises to end Prohibition. You can
    only buy liquor in a State-owned store. The state stores have quite
    decent prices on wine but can't sell *cold* beer or any soda and the
    selection available can be a bit eccentric.

    First, there are are two key things to keep in mind about how
    TJ's does its marketing. One, they never change the shelf
    price of an item as long as they still have it in stock from
    the same shipment. Two, they have no bulk food or produce --
    there are no scales at checkout. So the produce is all
    pre-packaged

    In my region, TJ's has some of the best values on on the following:
    Alvarado St. bread (re-labeled), organic dairy products,
    commodity (i.e. non-local) organic produce, breakfast cereal,
    frozen pizza, vegie burgers, soy nuggets, waffles; various
    Niman Ranch meat products; kosher chicken; tofurkey and
    similar products; cat food; bottled water. There are also many
    good wine values, less true for liquor and beer.

    Some common products they seem never to have in really good
    quality are coffee and tofu.

    A person could do about 80% of their shopping there and
    not miss out on much other than local produce and local meat.

    I'd disagree with you about coffee since I buy all mine at TJs. I can't
    argue about tofu; who can tell about quality in tofu; it's got no taste
    anyway!

    Hi there;

    Yes TJ'S is a good thing. Their Dairy, & egg prices are usually the most
    competitive as are their cheeses. The bread is upscale - sorry no wonder
    bread. :-)

    They carry a good variety of frozen foods also.

    Their wines are goes especially their 2 buck chuck and their TJ'S brands -
    the hard stuff I find a little high priced..

    They also carry a good selection of hot and cold cereals as well as dried
    fruits and nuts.


    You'll enjoy the store.

    Go to their website and look at their FEARLESS FLYER (AD)

    Enjoy.

    We couldn't live without TJ's. Milk, butter, sour cream, yogurt and other
    dairy stuff is all cheaper than the local supermarket and always of good
    quality. Orange juice is better and cheaper. Two buck Chuck wines, all
    varieties, are good and very inexpensive, depending on your local and state
    liquor taxes. I think we do over 50% of our food shopping at TJ's. This will
    change your life positively.

    As well the TJ's in our area have excellent customer service. As I recall
    they got very high marks in Consumer Reports for that.

    I am guessing from the latter that you've never had really good
    tofu, which is not too surprising since it's not very available.
    I'm fortunate in having a good local supplier (Hodo). I
    have heard that there's good tofu in the south bay area too.

    Coffee, well TJ's is better than some options, but there I
    am also spoiled.

    In fact I'm just spoiled in general.

    I like their frozen fish a lot, especially red snapper. My faves are their
    salsas, nuts, chocolate, and frozen ethnic and ready-made foods. We once had
    a TJ raspberry torte on shortbread crust at a friends house that was
    absolutely wonderful.
    Their soaps and shampoos are pretty good too!
    I used to drive quite a ways to get to a TJs but one opened up down the road
    last fall. :-)

    I've compared certain of their hard liquors against
    various other local stores (supermarkets, drugstores,
    etc.), and for the same item they are always cheapest.

    For the low volume stuff I believe you're correct but 99% of the time I can
    beat their prices on popular brands like Jack, or Chivas or Cuervo - one
    needs to be careful in comparing price as they usually will stock a full
    liter not a 750 ml. ergo one needs to take 3/4 of the price for comparison.

    I think their prices on single malts are quite reasonable.

    After all there's nothing like an Oscar Mayer bologna sandwich on sourdough
    with a Laphroaig.

    Am not impressed in general with Trader Joe's. If you don't have much
    selection in your area, you might well like it. They do sell a lot of
    things under their own label, which makes it difficult to know who
    actually made the product. Was looking for a particular brand of
    biscuit/cookie before Christmas and thought they were out of stock.
    Found it eventually, rebranded; seemed to taste the same.

    The one nearest us does have an excellent selection of wine with a wide
    price range and locally-produced wines as well. Most of the other things
    we've tried there were good enough but not top of the line. Fruit and
    veg are ordinary and more expensive than where we usually buy them.

    Keep in mind that each TJ's is modified to the local market. The one
    opening near you could well sell very different product lines than the
    one we've been to.

    Thank you all!
    I'm betting that we will not get wine or liquor but that's OK as there
    is a package shop a block in the other direction. Not sure what they
    will do about pre-packaged produce as ALL of our other stores
    (including Mall Wart) are you pick with a few exceptions like boxes of
    mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. All the other stuff will be bulk.

    We do have two good health food stores and 2 big ethnic markets (Asian/
    African/Balkan/Hispanic) 8 to 10 blocks away. From late June thru
    early October there is a 3 day/week Farmer's Market on the edge of
    downtown and some other street vendors in a big bank lot on Saturdays.

    This is a good neighborhood for prepared/frozen stuff, organic and
    ethnic because housing is on three strata: subsidized housing and
    cheap cheap efficiencies, then in the middle are the graduate school
    types NDSU Art & Architecture and Business Administration are
    downtown. That's mostly 3 or more guys/gals sharing a 2 to 4 bedroom
    apartment at $700 - $900 a month. Rest is condos that START at
    $200,000 and go to $500,000. Who the hell is going to buy a half a
    million dollar condominium in FARGO fer chrissakes? For that I want
    my OWN POOL!

    Oh yes, forgot to mention that my building is haunted. Sometimes the

    I saw her when my graduating class from nursing school went out for
    our big night. She was at some resort in NJ..this was back in the
    early 70s. And yes, she sang that....

    Back to Trader Joes. I am one of their fans, but you have to know
    what the good stuff is. I do think they consistently have the better
    prices on some things. Their prices for dried fruits and nuts are
    very good..and the quality is good.
    They sell Santini olive oil, which is recommended by Russ Parsons of
    the Los Angeles Times, no less. Reasonable price. They have their
    own labels too, of which the Kalamata olive oil is good. I learned
    about that one from one of our old regulars, years ago.
    Their little bottles of balsamic vinegar are pretty good. They also
    carry Fage yogurt, and their own label Greek style yogurt, which I
    find to be decent, and a fairly good price.

    Some of their frozen vegetables can be quite good. They have the
    frozen French green beans, and frozen artichoke hearts, among others.
    And I am a fan of their gyoza...

    Some of their frozen seafood can be rather good, especially the frozen
    fish. I have a few bags of their seafoods in my freezer..now trying to
    use it up.

    I buy their canned tomatoes fairly often, and have been buying them
    from way back: the Italian plum tomatoes are the ones I mean. Prices
    can't be beat on those, although they have gone up this last year.
    Still reasonable though. At one point they were selling the Muir
    Glen Fire Roasted tomatoes, but haven't seen those in some time.

    I like some of their pastas too....

    And if you don't make your own jams/jellies, some of those are very
    good.

    They have good prices on canned beans..mostly organic.

    Some of their rices are good...like the Arborio..comes in two box
    sizes now.

    I don't buy as many prepared foods there, but mostly the ingredients
    for making dishes. I do once in a while buy their puff pastry
    sheets, to make something: it is made by a prominent San Francisco
    bakery...

    Oh, and their goat cheese under their own label is also from a
    prominent CA goat cheese maker....

    Just take a careful look around when you go there..and remember it is
    not a regular grocery store. I find if folks think it is going to be a
    "regular" grocery store, they are often disappointed. If you take the
    time to look around and not expect to find what you have in your
    normal grocery store, you might be pleasantly surprised.

    James,
    TJ's has a pretty decent presence in Eastern PA, and we have the most
    archaic liquor laws in the country. Like you however, we're close enough to
    Delaware so it doesn't really matter.

    Total Wine is your friend. :-)

    I don't suppose you recall which cheese maker that is, do you? I'd be
    very interested.

    Yesterday Bob and I went to Sonoma to Vella Cheese -- specialists of
    awarding winning Monterey Jack cheese, then on to Point Reyes Station
    for the Cowgirl Creamery. Between the two places we came home with 8
    lbs. of cheese! The bargain of the day had to be from Vella ... we came
    away with 10 varieties under $40 for it all. And these were big chunks
    of cheese! My personal favorite was a high-moisture Monterey Jack with
    jalapeno. *Thanks to Dan for the heads-up!* We did get a couple of their
    dry jacks to compare, including that Golden Bear you mentioned.

    We got a few of our usual favorites from Cowgirl Creamery, and a couple
    of new ones that are local to the area like the Point Reyes Original
    Blue. All of the latter cheeses from CC were goat cheese with the
    exception of a smoooooth Appalachian. Last night we nibbled on apples,
    Mt. Tam and a mimolette.

    Besides the "cheese run" we wanted to get fresh oysters, but after a
    storm like the one we just had, oysters are hard to come by unless they
    are already in a tank somewhere. Something about the storms stirring up
    debris and contaminating oysters with bacteria. We did have lunch on the
    waterfront of Tomales Bay and had oysters there, but the place we wanted
    to buy fresh from was out of everything except one variety of small ones
    -- and they were charging way too much for those. We wanted the Kumamoto
    oysters. Maybe next trip.

    We need to have a cheese tasting party or guests over soon. This cheese
    will end up like so much of the cheese we get -- aging in the bottom
    drawer of the fridge. I can't and don't eat cheese that much anymore.
    Once in a "blue" moon won't kill me though! Cheesy pun. ;-)

    It was a beautiful day and I was able to spend a lot of time
    photographing the trip.

    No, I sure don't. I originally thought it was Laura Chenel, but I
    don't think it is, but another one. I think if you ask TJs, they will
    tell you. I saw it in print some time ago, about which one is it.

    I think several of their products are made by well known "artisan" and
    not so artisanal producers, but marketed under their own label.

    Believe me... if what you say is the only thing available within easy
    access, you're going to be blessing the ground your TJ's is built on.

    I prefer their "Bear's Lair" brand... which is virtually the same
    price.
