In my mind, Etta James’ At Last is playing and I seem to be gliding through a field of daisies…where am I? At Trader Joe’s. What is it if you haven’t ventured through its doors? A grocery store chain from the West coast that finally brought one store here to South Florida a little over a year ago. This store is unique in a number of different ways…
The folks working inside have a hippiesh feel and they are more than happy to help you. The food, one might think is expensive, but check again because it’s actually cheaper than many of the typical grocery stores available, but it has wonderful little things like milk and meats without hormones, fair-trade coffee, a variety of foods that are healthier for you yet reasonably priced…please finf the sweet potato gnocchi in their freezer section and try it or their unsweetened dried mango, their cereals are so wonderful and cheap…just go and see what I’m talking about…oh and their simmer sauces like the curry or marsala simmer sauces are so good. I’m going to stop…just go and discover your own favorites. Then there’s their wine and beers. Good wines, great prices. I almost don’t want to tell you about my favorite area because it’s already difficult enough to get because it sells out so quickly…they have Boatswain beers that are $2.49 for each bottle that is a little more than a pint of deliciousness.
Some people go to therapy or a bar when they need to decompress, I go to Trader Joe’s. Go and see what I’m talking about.
