The Trader Joes on W. Galer St is exceptional, their entire staff is helpful, friendly and their performance is superb, I love the store atmosphere as well, this kind of superb performance is displayed both by phone support and help, and continues on to their store.

GREAT STORE

Trader Joes is my alltime favorite grocery store, and I find 95% of what I need there with an occasional trip necessary to the bigger chain stores. I love TJ's for their selection of reasonably priced gourmet and organic items. I agree with other posts that the wine selection isn't the best, but I can almost find a really good table wine at a decent price - equivilent to what Larry's would promote as a great "sale" price. The freezer section is fabulous, I cringe to admit that I have made many dinners from that freezer section and taken credit for making it myself. Got rave reviews :o). You have to try the frozen asparagus risotto, no one will believe it came in a bag - and you don't have to tell them!

Pros: Gourmet, organic foods at a great price - go on Thursday when they stock up for the weekend

Cons: extremely crowded and tough to maneuver on the weekends

yes. I know, the too concepts- "cheap" and "organic" - are almost never going together. But Traders Joe has the cheapest organic products from everything I saw. I never found an expired product on their shelves (and believe me, there are lots of them in the other stores I go), I never was overcharged for something (usually I have to double check the receipt, it happend very often at other stores to be overcharged, or the price charged not to reflect a promotion or special). Never happened at the Traders Joe. The service is very good, the store is nice. And ... did I say cheap?

PROS: affordable organic food, delicious frozen dinners/ appetizers
CONS: none

The wine selection never ceases to amaze me with what you can get for $3. Great prices for whole wheat and organic foods, way better selection than other stores and they are less expensive. The staff is nice and always willing to help.

I like the Trader Joes chain of stores and I shop there a lot for good deals on food. I don't really like to shop at this particular location on Queen Anne Hill for two reasons, though.
1. they always seem to be out of stock on so many items, unlike other Trader Joes stores that I go too, like in Univ District or on Madison
2. also they don't have parking here, so it's so hard to find somewhere to park to go here.

Everytime I go to TJ's I have a wonderful experience. I love it when I ask a question and they ring the big bell to get their answer. When I take my son, they always give him stickers and sometimes he even gets a balloon. They really make it fun to go shopping for the kids and the mom's.

No matter which location you go to, you will be impressed with the selection of frozen (but really good!!) food that Trader Joe's offers. I don't typically buy frozen food, but the quality of what this store has to offer is hands down the best around. The store also has a nice beer and wine selection from around the world, as well as a stash of good cheeses. There are stores in the U District, Queen Anne, Capitol Hill, Burien, on the Eastside, and in Shoreline!

What's not to love about Trader Joe's on Upper Queen Anne? (Okay, aside from the terrible lack of parking.) The prices for wine & all kinds of gourmet food can't be beat. They have an excellent selcetion of bagged salads & veggies.

If you have food allergies or are on some sort of special diet, this is the place for you. You can find gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian selections with ease!

Between 1st Avenue W. and 2nd Avenue W.

Trader Joe's isn't your one stop grocery store, but what they do have is choice, reasonably priced, and gourmet. They have great brie cheese at great prices, wonderful sushi, and the best pizza dough I have ever had.

Pros: cheeses, pizza dough, great prices

Cons: limited choices, limited help

TJ's is a great store but putting their wine department on this list is saying you haven't tried many wine shops. They have great, oddball wines you'll never find anywhere else (an $11 Amarone!!) and their prices are great but their selection is woefully small and they sell, let's face it, a whole LOTTA crap. If you want to see a REALLY great small shop, try Capri in Bellevue, the best 100 square feet of wine in the state. TJ's is fine but C'mon!

Trader Joe's is a great store with a super selection of prepared foods (their frozen Key Lime Pie is the best I've had). Their wine selection is extensive with a lot of very inexpensive selections. They apparently only mark up by 10%.
