    Best time to come is around 8:30. Otherwise, be prepared to wait.

    Always a busy place. Avoid going on Sunday mornings. They don't seem to have all there stock in by then

    The staff here are always the nicest ever. Also, be nice to the world and bring a reusable shopping bag - if you do, they'll put your name in a raffle. ;)

    The lines were not as scary as anticipated...but Sunday night is slim pickings for some items. I'm going to try early morning next time.

    It may look like chaos reigns, but you will be out faster than you think.

  • aurore q.

    Lines seem long but they go fast. Make sure you skip the aisles the lines goes in so you can shop while you are moving in the line.

    Beat the rush and shop early Sunday mornings.

    Ryan Scott Tandy · March 7
  • Sarah E.

    Shop for everything you need on the Downtown floor first, then get on the line and collect things like milk, eggs meat and veggies while you are on line traveling to check out.

    Sarah Elizabeth · February 28
  • Mariela S.

    Go early between 8:00 and 9:30 am on weekends

    Don't go during peak hours unless you enjoy long lines.

    bernie hodkin · January 27

    Go when it opens at's WORTH IT.

    almost always a line but still My favorite grocery in upper west.

    Very cheap and wide variety!

  • Matt S.

    A grocery store of organized chaos. Avoid during peak times - the after work crowd is intense and they'll often turn people away if lines are too long. Fairway and Westside Market nearby are good alts

    Why would you shop anywhere else? Seriously?

    Patrick Healy · December 28, 2014
  • Ruth P.

    Got great vegetables and fruits

    Ruth Perrin · December 22, 2014
  • Paige C.

    I really don't like the layout of this location - very confusing. 3 floors total. Frozen should be closest to the check out, not a floor away!

    Paige C · December 15, 2014
  • Cindy l.

    This line is outrageous. But $2 arugula and tortellini? I'm there.

    Trader Joes is a staple in NYC. Go during the weekday afternoon to avoid the normal craziness

    Alex Fish · November 10, 2014
  • Patrick B.

    Don't worry about the line because it moves very quickly. But do take time to enjoy the artwork

    Love Trader Joe's but this one gets so crowded. Really solid produce though. And so much cheaper than any other store.

    Sara T. · October 1, 2014
  • Nicole Sikora H.

    Super high volume traffic, but they've really got managing the checkout lines down to a science.

    Nicole Sikora Heschong · September 19, 2014
  • Anthony

    Come on a random week day at 10 am for virtually no line

    Anthony · September 7, 2014
  • Charles G.

    The chocolate covered peanut butter pretzel bites are dangerously good. So are most of their treats. Lines are always long, but move well.

    Charles Guerrero · September 5, 2014
  • Nicole

    The line always moves faster than you think. Start in the basement for frozen + pantry stuff, move upstairs for fresh. Don't abandon your cart in the line to shop for 3-5 minutes. Reach! And jam 🎧.

    Nicole · August 25, 2014
  • Anastasia B.

    Annoyingly over populated at all times, but I still love Joe's

    Anastasia Bezverkha · August 22, 2014

    Inner peas: great snack. Not too bad for you. Cookie butter: eat at your own risk. Highly addictive, delicious and definitely not good for you.

    Daniel Cibener · August 20, 2014
  • Mark L.

    Fruit and Veggies are way better here than at Fairway.

    Mark Lombardi · August 10, 2014
  • Josh S.

    Go before 1pm on the weekends to avoid bigger crowds, but bring your patience for crowds and pushy shoppers every time.

    Cinco de mayo = line wrapped around the corner to get into the store

  • Scott K.

    1130am on a Tuesday and a line as far as the eye can see. Do people on the UWS work?

  • Dherbs

    Part of a mid-size specialty food market chain. Has a variety of organic produce and raw nuts and seeds. Perfect place to shop while doing the FULL BODY CLEANSE.

    Cottage cheese is like goo. Awful! Possibly worse than Bordens.

    Sandy Campbell · April 14, 2014
  • Tash C.

    Go as soon as they open to avoid the crowds and long lines.

    Tash Concepcion · March 22, 2014

    Can't stand shopping here lol, but a lady friend of mine said to always stay calm & if you come often, you'll get used to the rude, ignorant masses. 😒😀

    Swiss dark chocolate with 30% whole hazelnuts!

    Long lines. Confusing and cramped store set-up. Get your organic broccoli slaw from another location...

    Roland Lizares · January 26, 2014
  • Brooke S.

    This store is a daily shit show unless you come early in the morning before 12 or after 8pm, otherwise be prepared for chaos! There is even an occasional line outside to get in which is just insane!!

    Love this TJ's. Everyone who works here is super nice:)
