Next time you need groceries, consider shopping at Trader Joe’s, located on the lower level of the new Eastern Market development. Regulars note that although it is a bit smaller than some other TJ’s stores across the District, it’s also one of the newer and better-appointed spaces. And, of course, it has the same qualities you’d expect from any Trader Joe’s: friendly customer service, clean and tidy aisles, a wide selection of fresh produce and prepared foods, and prices that can be surprisingly affordable.
Whether you’re looking for a special cut of meat to serve at a special occasion meal or simply need to restock your fridge at The Residences at Eastern Market, you should be able to find what you need at Trader Joe’s. The store is open from 9 am to 7 pm during the week, with special early bird hours for seniors and customers with disabilities. Check the website for special offers and weekly sales.
