    Try to avoid this location on weekends - can be a total mad house and by Sunday, they're out of stock of a lot of things. Your best bet is coming as early as possible on Monday for prime selection.

    Go during the week, early in the day (while most people are at work) if you can. Weekends its a ZOO! Affordable cheeses, nuts, prepared food, oils and snacks.

    this Trader Joe's location can get crazy out of control with their lines. go early in the day on a weekday to get the best selection and least wait times. produce here is decent and prices are good.

    Some of the products that carry the Trader Joe's brand are in fact amazing. We love the dumplings, the organic brown rice, the sea salt peanut butter and the dried fruits. You just have to try them!

    The most beautiful grocery store you will ever find. TJ's took one of the grand old bank buildings from the 20s (1923) and actually showcased the architecture, unlike most owners of such buildings.

    Can't beat TJ's prices especially on organic produce when in stock. Their products are comparable to any leading food brand. They just created their own Balsamic Glaze which makes me very happy!

    Everything here is amazing like the snacks and frozen foods. Cheap and good. But be careful: you will most likely buy more delicious goodness than you came here for.

    Love this place. Court Street is smaller, but I love the selection. Check out the Indian foods in the frozen section. I've created some great meals by combining with fresh ingredients.

    The borough’s only Trader Joe’s is a local claim to fame, offering big-scale convenience and pre-prepped gourmet takeaway that’s hard to find under one roof anywhere else.

    When this TJ's first opened, it was a great shopping experience. After its 1st 2 years, it's like any other NYC store. Get 'em in & fast. Or faster. Now they're only into the bottom line, NOT service.

    If you happen to be gluten intolerant, ask for the list of gluten-free items. It's exhaustive and makes you feel like you can eat everything in the world! TJ love.

    Cut you some flax. Try adding flaxseed or its oil to your meals. Trader's has it golden roasted, milled, whole, in cereal, in oatmeal. The health benefits are plentiful and the taste is yummy.

    Getting as bad as Park Slope Food Coop during peak hours. People shouldn't browse with a cart. Or on the phone. They're too spacey. My advice: Stow cart and grab a few things at a time.

    Wild Mushroom and Black Truffle Flatbread- Ridiculous. A bit of a splurge but hands down my favorite TJ's treat. Also best multi-grain English Muffins ever.

    Check the coffee grinders for leftover beans from someone who didn't grind all their beans. Could lead to mixing of coffees or just more coffee, depends on how you look at it

    This is certainly less hectic than the Union Square version, but be wary of the afternoon and evening shopping scene. It WILL be busy.

    It's not Whole Foods, but it's convenient. The line moves fast. You can't take the carts outside but an employee will help assist you with your groceries if you pull your car up within a block radius.
