A well-maintained store on Main St. of Fairfax city is a great grocery shopping facility. A huge selection of delicious wines and top quality cheese recipes plus probably the cheapest prices in the market creates a fulfilling and valuable shopping experience here. I liked their pork chops and pan sauce and they were happy to tell me the recipe, most chefs don't usually do that.

I was lining up to pay for my groceries at Trader Joe's in Fairfax last night and the cashier was very nice to the customers ahead of me. When it was my turn, I said hi, but she never answered nor looked at me. Also, she never answered nor nodded when I asked for double bagging. And she started talking to the next customer very nicely asking "did you find everything all right tonight?" even before my transaction completely ended. I felt quite awkward at that moment. I hope there was no racial profiling in her mind even though I was the only asian woman in that particular line.

I have been a regular customer at Trader Joe's Fairfax VA for the past 8 years and have had great experiences in the past. I have seen a decline in Customer Service at this friendly grocery store. I had two unpleasant experiences 2 weeks in a row. My little girl was excited and wanted to try the sample cheese and she was rudely reprimanded by the Wine Rep or whoever he is supposed to be. I did tell him that I did not think that was a nice thing to do. My husband overheard me talking to the Customer Service Agent and had his own comment to add. He asked the person to place a sign saying that a valid Driver's License was required to taste the wine displayed. My husband told me that the rep had asked him for a Driver's License. It appears that my husband was the only one that he had asked for a License-I am not sure if his being a minority had anything to do with it. He did of course report this to the Manager.I went back yesterday and my children tried the Gnocchi that was being sampled by many. They love Gnocchi and we bought 2 packets and the lady preparing it had a friendly conversation with me. She is wonderful and always has something nice to say. I went back to grab something off the shelf close to where the Station was and saw the same Wine Rep or Customer Service agent from last week whispering to the lady who was holding up the packet of Gnocchi and explaining something to him. I checked myself from saying anything to him as it would have been an assumption that they were discussing me--which might not be the case-but I did come away feeling terribly saddened at the sacrifice I would have to make now-no more shopping at my favorite grocery store. Ironic, since I have converted so many of my friends and acquaintances to TJ shoppers.

I just began to frequent this grocery store again after being in Seattle and seeing how much my sister-in-law shops there. The prices are fairly good but I always end up leaving there spending between $75-100 for a 2 adult family. I have found that parking is a nightmare. I never can get in and out of this shopping center quickly and the carts cannot be brought the car. The produce is also not very good and pricey compared to Shoppers Food Warehouse across the street. They have a wonderful frozen food section and cheese selection. I would especially recommend their peanut butter cups, Southwest Turkey Burgers, Wasabi Mustard, and Pizza Dough for 99 cents.

PROS: Frozen Foods, Samples all the time, Free Balloons for kids
CONS: Parking Nightmare, Produce is usually old, tasteless, and expensive

If only we could do all of our grocery shopping here -- it would be perfect. They have very interesting and delicious items and have food that is different that our kids will even eat! Service is always fantastic too.

Phenomenal breads!!! Great (and easy) ideas for making meals more interesting. Also the staff is very helpful and aware (they'll open a new register without waiting for a manager to notice the lines). Just a nice place to shop with great food (and flowers too)!

Trader Joes is always a pleasant place to shop. They offer a variety of specialty grocery items, as well as some items you would find at a mainstream grocery store. The prices are low, and the employees are always smiling.

PROS: great employees
CONS: not much parking

If you've never been here before, you are missing out. Trader Joes has the best food for amazing deals. Its better priced than all those large grocery stores out there. In addition, the food is amazing...many different options...such as organic, fresh, or many vegetarian options. The products are from local sellers so some items you may not see at other Trader Joes. You shop there once and I guarantee you will always go back.

Trader Joe's is an interesting store for many reasons. They have an amazing frozen food section with entrees such as rattlesnake, rabbit, onion soup, seafood newburg, and goat cheese pizza. They have samples all over the store. But the best part of the store is the wine section. Trader Joe's is the exclusive retailer of Charles Shaw wine, better known as 2 Buck Chuck. The price has actually gone up to $3.49 per bottle, but it's still a good deal. The best place to park is at the side of the shopping center near the entance. For some reason very few people like to park there.
