    Lines are long but can be avoided if you go early morning. Whatever you do avoid the 6 pm rush!
  • Courtney B.
    Amazing prices, and great quality prepared foods. Their produce is hit or miss, just be sure to pick up fruits and veggies you'll use quickly.

    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..

    Shop with a friend during the busy hours, one of you can wait on the super line to the cashier while the other shops.

    Consistently less crowded than the TJ's at Union Square but the best time to go is between 8 and 8:30 am

    If there's enough space, best believe that I'm gonna push off and ride my shopping cart down an aisle. I've done it before and I'll do it again.

    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.

    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

    The cheapest place to get organic yogurt in the city, so I try stocking up on other affordable organic foods while there.

    This place is always swarming with people. Go with a friend so one of you can shop while the other waits in line.

    The line looks like a hot mess (and is) but moves fast. At its worst (starting at the entrance), Ive gotten out in 15-20 mins, approx the same as waiting behind 2 people at Costco

    Love the brown rice medley, all natural BBQ sauce, red lentils, friendly staff & layout of store.

    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.

    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.

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

    Love this Trader Joe's! When the line looks long, no worries, it always goes much faster than a regular grocery store. But be sure to avoid 12-2PM and 4-6....the line gets crazy long.

    Make sure to grab a few extra produce bags before getting in line so you have something to strangle yourself with while you wait.

    WOW! All the staff and cashiers are super friendly and have a sunny disposition. Makes me want to visit here more often!

    Sometimes when its really crowded someone will ask everyone in the line if they forgot anything...then they'll bring it to you!

    If you're going to go on a Monday night, make sure you get your shopping done by 7pm. If not, prepare to stand in line just to get in the door.

    This is a much larger store than 14th Street and the one on 73rd at Brdwy. Long lines, but that's nothing new. Great store and friendly-as-f*ck service.

    Best Trader Joe's in Manhattan, hands down! Easiest to navigate and line didn't conflict too badly with shopping areas unless it's lunch time or a Monday!!

    I miss the days when people didn't know about this location. Lines are awful now & wrap throughout the store, causing havoc for eveyone.

    Dear Trader Joe's Chelsea, I am sick and tired of your obnoxious lines at every hour of the day. I will be taking my business to Whole Foods on 7th and 25th (right around corner).

    Pumpkin is back! They have pumpkin Greek yogurt, ice cream, soup, butter, cheesecake, cream cheese, muffin mix, ravioli, and more.

    A quick trip here for some bleu cheese and pecan dip w/baby carrots will fuel you for a show nearby at Webster Hall or Highline Ballroom.

    This location sucks - they lack customer service and in no way are helpful. The Union Square location trumps them Any Day!! Rude Service and manners. I've been to TJ's CT, STL, and CA ~pls fix TJ!

    A must try: the chili cheese tamales are absolutely delicious. Pair it with their lime and habanero salsa and some sliced avocado - all from Trader Joes!

    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.)

    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.

    Don't let the line scare you off. I've never spent more than 10 mins in it. Well, maybe let it scare you... No qualms with getting through there even faster.

    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!

    Try something new to add some flavor to your life - maybe a pineapple, an organic banana or a gluten free mini quiche!

    It's almost Easter which means TJ's gourmet jelly beans are back in stock! With flavors like pomegranate, pink grapefruit and blackberry Stock up before they are gone!

    There's a big section of fruits and vegetables near the front. If you run into the store at full speed, you might miss it. Don't! There's some good food here.

    Never come here on a weekday between 4 and 6. Never come here on a weekend after 3. ALWAYS stock up while you're here because the prices and selection are fantastic!

    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

    Although not as many selections; it's still a million times better than Whole Foods! Better prices, nicer people, and better hours, too. Read more

    the management is very accommodating to people with food allergies. I was given a comprehensive guide to gluten free foods in the store! if you have a special dietary concern, tell the captain!

    The lines are a nightmare in the later afternoons and evenings, but this is probably the best organized NYC store and a great lunch spot if you're close!
    TJs is a great place to find seasonal produce. Pick up a bag or two of blood oranges (while you still can) for this Blood Orange Olive Oil Cake. So flavorful! Get the recipe on

    Bring a friend to get in line while you shop. By the time you're done they be near the front of the line and you'll be in and out in no time

    Looking for garnishes for your next Bloody Mary? Check out TJs selection of olives & pickled items. Totally legit. Also swing by produce for celery. Find a Bacon Bloody how-to on

    Surprised by how short the line looks from outside? Think again, they do a superb job of hiding a line that snakes around the back of the store!

    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.

    Lots of space here. Super long line though, so long there's a man at the end with a cardboard sign that says "end of line!" 20 minutes from back of line to out the door...

    The new Trader Joe's is located on 675 6th Avenue between 21st and 22nd Streets. It's very well laid out and has a wider selection of goods than other NYC TJ's locations.
