    LOVE the 6th avenue location. Roomier than 14th st. My go-to for party shopping. I always get the burrata cheese, the cold cuts , the dark chocolate ginger and the orange chocolate strips.

    Great variety of healthy meal options and snacks. If you're looking to eat well, you can pick up some key foods here to add to your grocery list and in expensively. Only downfall are the LONG lines.

    Way better laid out than the gramercy location, quick and friendly staff and unique items. Also, if you're looking to make a quick easy dinner they sell the absolute best store bought pizza dough

    Definitely beats the Union Square location, mainly because it's always less crowded, although lines still can be lengthy.

    Avocados were cheaper here than my usual grocer in the UES. I usually pick up 'healthy' snacks when I get a chance to shop here -- too far for weekly trips. Tried their Challah buns, I've had better.

    Go to the frozen foods section and take a look at the fish selection. Mahi Mahi, Ahi Tuna and Swordfish vacuum packed at really low prices. This is a great place for basics like eggs and milk.

    The best TJ in the city. All one floor. Good coffee & munchies like pizzas on offer always. Find the fresh produce here better than other TJ's, also wider variety.

    Best TJ's in the city. Wide aisles, a layout that makes sense, plus they have the small two-level shopping carts that are inexplicably absent from the (much smaller) UWS location!

    Pro tip: for workday lunchtime shopping, use the buddy system. 1 person immediately gets in the line that's wrapped around entire store, other does shopping. Queueing person may want to bring a book..

    Great place to stock up on gluten-free essentials. Ask customer service for their list of gluten-free products. Also, look for the "g" on the label indicating no gluten ingredients. Read more

    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.

    Well, they consider chicken to be meat. And as a vegetarian I like this distinction because often Americans say chicken is poultry not meat. (That makes no sense to me.)
