The parking lot is a travesty, but it's the closest TJ's to downtown

I purchased a package of Trader Joe's Organic Basmati Rice (from India) and put it in my pantry, never thinking that soon afterwards, I would have an INFESTATION OF INDIAN MEAL MOTHS flying all over my kitchen! Yikes!!!!

Why is it that every time I fall in love with something at Trader Joe's they discontinue it? Do you remember the Achiote Traveler's Chocolate? And what about the high protein blueberry muffins? You just can't find stuff like that anywhere else. But when they discontinued the crystalized ginger, that was the end. I was devastated and seriously considered boycotting Trader Joe's all together.

Then... magically it came back. Thank you Joe!

TJ's is the best market ever!! It's cheaper than the regular market and the whole selection there is great! Everything is always fresh and healthy. Plus, if you're a starving college student, they have great frozen foods that are healthy and still have lots of flavor!

I live in Montebello, CA and I either have to go to Pasadena or Whittier to go to my closest Trader Joe's. It would be so convenient if you had a Trader Joe's in Alhambra or San Gabriel and I think you would get a lot of business. Thank you so much,

This is the closest Trader Joes to my house and though parking is still a hassle anytime other than 10 a.m. midweek, I seem to end up here at least once a week. It's much more affordable than Gelson's across the street, and though I prefer Gelson's fruits, veggies and fresh food counter, I usually stock up on the basics at Trader Joes and then fill in the gaps elsewhere. The staff has always been friendly and upbeat at this TJ's as well. The only complaint I have it that they recently stopped taking recycling so I am forced to find another recycling center to schlep my umpteen bags of bottles to. I loved the fact they would take your recycling and give you credit on your grocery bill on the spot.

Pros: parking

Cons: parking

Never knew it as a hook up spot. It's my neighborhood grocery store. The one on 3rd is far too small to get through--this one is 1/2" larger. Everyone is so freakin' friendly that I wonder what they are on. I'm tempted to go work there just to find out. Maybe it's something in the water.

Pros: It's got better parking then other TJ's and slightly wider isles, and a super friendly staff. And it's not full of Hollywood/Exec types.

Cons: None--except they quit carrying peanut butter-filled dog bones & keep rearranging everything.

You're not going to find a better neighborhood bar than this. Great selection of healthy and organic food you can find. Great prices too. Not as crowded as wholefoods. Wish the hours were longer by another hour or two. Won't find some of the great items in other normal markets. Nice market

Pros: Great Neighborhood Market

Cons: Not long enough hours, Open until midnight please.

This is my least favorite trader joes that I frequent. It is always crowded and sometimes they don't have my favorite items on the shelf. But it is still trader joes and and I love this store and all their products!

I don't understand this love of Trader Jo's. For fresh foods it's the pits. If you want to buy giant bags of nuts, okay. If you want to purchase the most fattening (bar none) breads or other bakery items I've ever seen, go for it. But if you prefer fresh food, and bakery goods that will not equal a week's caloric intake, go to just about any other market. I suppose for special ocasions where you want something different, or for cheap wine, it's pretty good.

Pros: some good buys, ample frozen food, good alcohol prices

Cons: hardly anything fresh, calorie packed bread, not a real market

Besides Trader Joes being the only market I shop at due to their eclectic selection of foods from around the world, their check out system is better then ever. They just revamped their check out system and it is fantastic! They can now swipe/key in all your food, you can see the tally right in front of you and if you pay by credit card you simply swipe and electronically approve your signiture. No more paper to sign! Also, no backing up into your neighbor in order to leave the store. You just keep progressing forward and you are in the stream to get out the door and on your way home to cook.

Once I week, I head here for the "homemade" tortillas, on-sale Cabernet, shiitake mushrooms, roasted red peppers and those delicious frozen shrimp ;) Put on your lipstick before you arrive, 'cause you will probably run in to someone you know. And you want to look good, right?

At Trader Joe's, the canned goods, frozen foods and cheeses are top-notch, as is the wine selection (must try the Bear's Lair chardonnay). In terms of product, only the produce disappoints (over-ripe bananas, bruised apples, limited selection of veggies). Still, it's the kind of grocery store that can make a mac-n-cheese bachelor look like a gourmet chef without breaking the bank. But TJ's does its customers no favors with the awkward layout of the registers. Lines that form immediately cut of traffic to the exits and run into the aisles. The parking lot is, without fail, a complete zoo as well. The staff is always friendly and helpful, however. (If the store seems to be out of your favorite item, just ask about it--they'll usually order it or save a selection for you from the next scheduled shipment.) All in all, it's worth the hassle.
