Trip to Traders Joe's

Do you like to go market shopping? I love it, but around here in Buck's County, the problem is where do I want to go. I also use different markets for different reasons. Within 20 minutes of the Casa there are  2 Gaints, Acme, Weis, Redner's Market, Whole Foods, Super Fresh, Wegmens, and Traders Joe's. Not to mention all the little markets and farmer's markets which I use alot, especially in the spring/summers months, and a nightly stop most  evenings. So yesterday morning in the mail I  received my latest Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer, there adorable little newspaper, featuring all there May promotional goods and comics. And I just love me some Traders Joe's, and recommend them highly.  So off to North Wales to do my shopping. And the staff there is always so friendly.

 
I can usually use Trader Joe's for all my needs, where most of the other's I shop I use for only certain things, and Whole Foods is hard to beat in the fresh floral area. But what I love about Trader Joe's is the lovely painted art work in the market.....so fun and lively!
 
 
 
 
If you know me I had to hit the cheese area, where some were selected.....
 
 
 
And the diary.....
 
 
And the meat section.....
 
 
Oops. Unfortunately not for sale. Did I mention when I go there, it never seems a shortage of hotties shopping there? Then off to the flowers and produce.......
 
 
 
 
 
 
Then off to some yummy snacks.....
 
 
 
I love my Almond Butter on toast in the morning and they have among the best tasting around. Plus I love me some popcorn to snack on, their white cheddar and all their selection is so good. I came home with two full bags , with drinks, snacks, and dinners for the week for $50.23! If your near a Trader Joe's there meats and prepared foods are quite the deal with prices hard to beat, and the food is all so tasty and fresh. Tonight,  I am par taking of the Artichoke Ravioli's I picked up, with some red vino. Last night I enjoyed their French onion soup with a sub I had from the neighbor deli..... before dinner I enjoyed  a Slow gin fizz, made with a pinch of their Strawberry lemonade.......
 
 
And like I said, you never know what you may pick up on a trip to the market ;0.......like I said they have some fine male shoppers......

  1. Trader Joe's doesn't use any artificial ingredients or preservative in their products.. That's a BIG difference to me, I love them. And what a great backside on the last guy ;> How was it?

  2. I love Trader Joe's also ,although I wish we had one in Cenetr City, so I must make the trek out to it. As a "straving artist" the prices are good for me. And your right, I never see a lack of handsome men and gay couples there shopping

  3. Hey, I've traded at Trader Joe's for years, since the 19t0's. Raised my two kids and my grandson on TJ and I love their natural products. And your right about their Almond Butter- to die for. I was happy when they opend in North Wales, but now opened in King Of Prussia which is closer to the Main Line.

  4. Oh , I love this post and Tj's! I don't care what they do, as long as they don't mess with my Two Buck Chuck. You even make food shopping look fun.

  5. Luvvvvvv Trader Joe's. Organic fruits and veg's galore. Tasty frozen products - haven't been let down yet. The best prices for Kefir and organic fruits. Organic tomato soup is excellent and my favorite Turkey meatloaf with mashed potatoes on top is the bomb. I travel 30 minutes twice a month and load up. The prices are great and they are my favorite place to shop...

  6. If they did sell men, the Mistress's cart would be full.

  7. We have a local upscale market - when you walk up to the fish counter it must have a motion detector - as seagulls will start calling, lighthouses sound, buoys ring. Scared the heck out of me first time it happened. I was waiting for the egg case to start clucking.

    1. O do believe that would scare the tar out of me. No pun intended.

  8. TJ is within walking distance from my place, and I shop there often, but mostly for odds and ends .... and some fruits and veggies. During the season, they sell lugs of tree ripened peaches and nectarines that are to die for.

  9. Trader joe's is definitely worth the 25 minute drive for me. Great products, prices and staff. The English coastal cheddar is amazing! Have you tried it?

  10. What a fun atomosphere it looks like, love all the art work and paintings. Seems like they have a great sense of humor. How did you not take the blond guy out of the store?

  11. Grea tpost and funny tour! I am adoring that pink gingham shirt you have on! We have four places to shop, but 2 of them are the same place. I hate when I have to go.

  12. Being in the Harrisburg area, shopping in general sucks! There is mostly Gaint, which seems everywhere, and weis. The only other game is Wegmans which took FOREVER to get here. I like them but it's like a football field to shop, almost to big, but they most likely have the hard to find item on your list. I still can't believe there is no whole foods or Trader Joe's yet. I swear, you have everything in your area!

    1. I live in Hershey and can't believe how bad shopping for anything , sucks. So many things have left, and most malls are a joke.

    2. Oh Uptown Boys, it can never be too big.

  13. I'm a TJ'S shopper too. I think you'll find that the reason TJ's prices are lower is their business model. Rather than "leasing space" on their shelves to big brands ,which adds another layer of cost to the product, they actually purchase the product, and in some cases, they do actually produce their own products.

  14. Please keep a close eye on your belongings? Good thing they have that sign, or no man's goods would be safe from the Mistress!

  15. Great food, great service, great prices I hear, and they take care of their employees very well. And wouldn't be a Mistress post without some men!

    Trader Joe's is awesome but I don't live within five miles of one. We do have a local farmer's market called Sprouts that has a lot of interesting stuff. I need to go there midweek!

  17. I've never been inside one, but I drove the get away car outside the one in Manhattan for a friend once. (she was in desperate need of organic pumpkins).

  18. Shouldn't the sign read Ladies, hold on to your men? We so need one of these in downtown Philly. Whole Foods is nice, but expensive.

  19. I used to do all my grocery business at the T-Joes near my home in California. Sadly, the closest one to Casa Bob y Carlos is a 90 minute drive.
    Each way.

  20. I've been to Trader Joe's and I've never seen those types of male wonderfulness ... more likely the cranky hipsters or jaded boomers.
