Ah Trader Joe’s is my favorite neighborhood grocery store. Though not a single one in my currently resident state of Colorado (2012 – edited: they have them now 2016). I had to drive to Albuquerque or Santa Fe, New Mexico to get to it or visit when I’d often fly here to Portland or Seattle. So anytime I’m in a town with Trader Joes’; you gotta know I’ll hit it. Its a grocery store and so much more – shelves stocked with delicious and wholesome foods that puts Whole Foods to shame. Ranging from milk n’ bread to exotic fares like imported cheeses, organic produce, oddities, cultural foods, and hand-tossed pizza from Italy. In addition to the variety, notorious for its liquor selection, though this Oregon store only seemed to have beer and wine. The prices are fantastically cheap. Unbeatable. Puts Costco and Sams club to shame in my opinion with quality and price. This is why I’m a dedicated Trader Joes’ patron and I’d drive several hours to go shopping at their locations. Someday perhaps Colorado will get one. (edited: they did) Till then the wanderlust will be satiated. This store is in walking distance from the Youth hostel and has a wide selection. Great shop. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
