It all started in the 50s... Would you believe we started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It's true. Way back in 1958. We were called Pronto Markets. In '67, our founder, the original Trader Joe, changed our name (yes, to Trader Joe's) and the way we do busi... (See all)

    Cheapest groceries in Manhattan. Avoid coming on Friday Saturday and unsay

    Have a buddy fetch groceries while you wait in line.

    Only place in town that has affordable groceries

    They are always out of the good fruits and vegetables whenever I come!

    Give a worker 5 bucks and skip the long line

    Florence Nguyen · October 8
  • Edward S.

    Best grocery store in NYC. Lines like a meat packing club if you're not careful

    Edward Sebor · October 3
  • Saif D.

    The line is long. Beware

    Saif Dia · October 3
  • Gabriel H.

    The best grocery store near Union Square. Reasonable prices with a great selection.

    Gabriel Hayes · August 28
  • Jessica N.

    Go early in the morning or at random afternoon hours to avoid the long lines that wrap around the store!

    I hope you like waiting in chaotic lines

    If you're a Postmate that needs help with a big list for a customer, ask for Jasmine. She's great!

  • Nancerella

    Don't like this location but when in need, you just have to suck it up.... I like the one in Chelsea 7th avenue much better

    Nancerella · April 29
  • Jonah E.

    The lines are long enough that you will do half your shopping in line, but it's worth it

    the line around lunch time is usually pretty short

    Christine Wong · April 10
  • Paige C.

    I made it through my entire shopping list during rush hour on a Thursday with NO LINE! How is this possible?

    Paige C · April 10
  • Lexington P.

    Crowded on Sunday

  • Marco S.

    Huge queues...Plan accordingly.

    Marco Sousa · April 4
  • Leigh Anne Z.

    This location is always a crowded mess EXCEPT in the last 30 minutes before closing (closes at 10)

  • Kimmie O.

    Love their samples! Great, friendly service. Fresh food! The only problem is there are really long lines :/

    Kimmie Ohh · March 23
  • Amanda F.

    My #1 food shopping store in NYC. Great deals.

    Amanda Fett · March 14
  • Shanda R.

    Come here after lunch and before rush hour for shorter lines.

    Line went out the door in freezing temps. So I went to the TJ wine store instead. 😃

  • Siettah

    Make sure to grab everything you need from the interior of the store then shop the exterior while you're in line. Go to the line farthest to the right if you need dairy items.

    The line is out the door at tjs

    Laura Krule · February 11
  • FoodFashionFolly

    the customers are ANGRY while the customer service couldn't be friendlier.

    Go early in the morning to avoid the huge crowds and to avoid having your favorite product being out of stock

    Keith Pantaleon · January 31
  • Fatou B.

    Monday and Tuesdays are the most crowded. But the bananas are fresh and the staff is friendly.

    Fatou Bah · January 21
  • Jennifer L.

    I can't live without their Chicago style mix popcorn, among other things.

    Jennifer Levine · January 6
  • Alyssa T.

    It's super busy, but don't let the line intimidate you because it moves along pretty quickly. Also, the employees are most likely the nicest you will ever meet. I am obsessed.

    Alyssa Thomann · December 31, 2014
  • Donna V.

    Line system is horrible. Limited items at the store

    Donna Vuong · December 29, 2014
  • Kc H.

    Bring reusable bags, they'll give you a discount. Also the free coffee samples are fantastic.

    Kc Hoffman · November 28, 2014
  • Ben D.

    Come either right at opening (8am) or mid afternoon (3pm). Gets crowded later in the morning and then packed before dinner.

    Ben Drucker · November 25, 2014
  • Douglas W.

    The guy in front of me in line is a genius. He walked into the store and immediately joined the (very long, as usual) line with a completely empty cart and is shopping from the line as it progresses.

    Douglas Watters · November 17, 2014
  • Lauren S.

    This place is always a zoo. I wouldn't dare go during lunch or after work. The line snakes around the whole store!

    Lauren SK · November 6, 2014

    Great Deals on Wine!

  • Eric S.

    Very busy location, but line moves fast.

    Eric Shine · October 5, 2014
  • Sara T.

    Trader Joe's is great. This one gets busy. I pick up the stuff I need from the middle of the store and grab items from around the outside while I'm in line. Patience is virtue!

    Sara T. · October 3, 2014
  • Paige C.

    Came on a Wednesday when it was raining (expecting a shorter line) - BIG mistake! Line started when I entered the store. My advice: get your frozen items LAST if you can!

    Paige C · October 2, 2014
  • Jacob F.

    Look closely. This place is full of love.

    Jacob Ford · September 28, 2014
  • Ben M.

    You can get all the essentials in the outside line - vegetables, fruit, bread, cheese, meat, dairy, juice and beer. The pro move is to bring a friend to run around for the rest while you stay in line.

    Ben Mackey · September 4, 2014
  • Ramy M.

    Go to the 6th Avenue location if you can. This store is hard to navigate and constantly overcrowded.

    Ramy Majouji · August 25, 2014
  • Angela C.

    SUCH. Long. Lines. Thank goodness for a West Side Market opening on 12th and 3rd.

    Angela Chen · August 25, 2014
  • Silky W.

    I don't care how fast the lines move. They are the equivalent of running a marathon. The more people you bring the better. You can each do a task while someone waits online. True meaning of tag team

    Silky Waves5 · August 17, 2014
  • Carol C.

    Longest lines ever but managed well. Crazy set up though with one store for food and another for wine.

    Carol Colvin · August 14, 2014
  • Justin B.

    Pro Tip 1: Go with someone who stands in line while you shop. Pro Tip 2: Shop the middle aisles first. Then stand in the outside line and shop veggies, bread, cheeses, meats, cereals and dairy.

    Justin Breton · August 10, 2014
  • Julian M.

    The frozen mango chunks, crunchy cookie butter, and the ginger snaps are all must-haves. Obviously because they're TJ's extremely healthy options

    Julian M · August 7, 2014
  • Hannah R.

    Smaller selection than in the one on 72nd.

    Hannah Rozenblat · August 7, 2014
  • Chris Z.

    Incredibly bust store, love it but stop at this location only when I absolutely have to.
