Trader Joe's

Tampa’s Trader Joe’s has finally opened, and it’s busy as hell. You would have thought the baby Jesus himself was promoting the Curried Quinoa Salad with Mango or something on this Easter Sunday. Conceding that it should have been opened years ago and that I am certainly behind the times, I still love this place! I am such a foodie now…

“Trader Joe’s is no ordinary grocery chain. It’s an offbeat, fun discovery zone that elevates food shopping from a chore to a cultural experience. It stocks its shelves with a winning combination of low-cost, yuppie-friendly staples (cage-free eggs and organic blue agave sweetener) and exotic, affordable luxuries — Belgian butter waffle cookies or Thai lime-and-chili cashews — that you simply can’t find anyplace else.”
