“We love Trader Joe's. It's hard not to when we live within a 30 second walk from it! Try their samples in the back of the market- they are always so good. Plus the free coffee is fun. If you have kids, have them find the stuffed animal hiding in the market to win a prize from the sample desk (free lollipop or piece of fruit).”
