Best time to shop at Union Square Trader Joe's?

vvv03 Jan 20, 2007 06:06 PM

In terms of both stock selection and beating crowds, when is the best time to go? I always pick the worst time -- weekend afternoons, but I'm thinking I might take a long lunch from work one day if it allows for a more leisurely shopping exprience. Or are weekend mornings/evenings better?

        I went around 2pm and it was not bad at all.
        It's really hit or miss.
        I got some roasted corn in the freezer isle.
        for sure/

          I've gone at 9:00 on weekend mornings and have been in and out in no time.
