    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.

    Not as crazy as its Union Square brother (and there’s no wine) but you’ll forgive the lines when you get home and enjoy your delicious and inexpensive groceries.

    This place is crazy on weekends, but weekdays are cool. Lines look long, but they do a good job ok keepin it moving. Friendly staff!!!!

    Disregard the name of the store, they won't actually trade with you, they make you pay for everything. Very misleading.

    Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200 until you go to the back for 'today's sample' oh what exciting lives we live!

    Map it out first before starting to shop if it's your first time, or else you'll get home and realise you forgot to buy milk to go with your cereal.

    Great (and reasonably priced) for frozen food, dry / canned goods and beer! The line isn't as scary as it seems (unlike 14th St.). Wish they could have a wine store at this location too!

    Probably the cheapest place to find French products in New York : cheese, mustard, pre cooked bread...

    The most pleasant and helpful staff of any store I've ever been to in NYC, and I've been to a lot of stores in NYC. Kudos to the staff and management.

    Much love, Trader Joe's, but who's ever heard of a line to get into a grocery store on a Monday afternoon?? Skip this over crowded location.

    Avoid going late nights as aost all stock is gone. Also weekend afternoons are a nightmare, even so this place is awesome and the lines move quick.

    Kai F. · February 22, 2013

    Long line to cashier during peak hours. Try, instead, when they first open for the day.

    Whether you're headed for an upscale night at Lincoln Center or a dirty rock show at Terminal 5, stop here first and snack on their phenomenal dark chocolate peanut butter cups. Smooth and deeelish!
