“If you aren't from the Western US, you've maybe never heard of Trader Joes. It has everything you always wanted: fresh fruits and veg, a huge cheese selection, wonderful premade salads, sandwiches, meals, frozen dinners you can't get anywhere else, chocolate, artisanal bread, a great wine and spirits selection, lovely sauces to spice up a meal, et al. Everything is curated and the staff is super knowledgable and friendly. It can get busy, however they know how to get you through the line pretty quickly, so don't worry about that. Open til 9pm. ”
