    Favs: orange chicken with brown jasmine, Bool Kogi korean beef ribs, dark yolk eggs, frozen seafood blend & the 2 buck chuck. & TJ's truffle brownie mix + mini peanut butter cups = best brownies ever!

    Best prices on many staples and lots of vegan options. TJ brand vegan foods are often marked with a "V." Parking lot is usually packed and people block aisles with carts regularly.

    Really tightly packed interior with lots of grocery cart traffic jams, and parking is slim, but the staff is beyond cool and everyone treats you like family once you show up a few times.

    This place used to be my fave store, when I lived in LA. Only place I got Finnish candy when I got home sick. I remember the shopguy Ned even treating me with candy after I had the worst day ever.

    Bring your own bags or pay for paper bags @ 10 cents each or buy reuseable bags starting @ a dollar each.

    Avoid going on Sunday mornings. It's packed with tons of people because of the farmer's market.

    When entering from Pico, turn right after the pedestrian crosswalk instead of left. Usually room to park there.

    Don't shop hungry unless you want to leave with more than you came for

    Avoid during peak hours. It's easier to get into a popular nightclub and less room to move around too.

    I know Trader Joe's typically has bad parking but this place is joke. The selection at this particular Joe's is subpar compared others that I go to. A horrible place to grocery shop.

    Beware of Raymond. He insists on taking your cart for you & doesn't stop babbling incoherently for a while

    parking is impossible during peak times! Find a close street spot after 6PM if you can!

    You're not very far away at all. If you're a friend, you should come over and say 'hi'.
