Trader Joes opened the first store in Utah this week. Place has been crowded. Flyer came in the mail today and I had errands that would take me close enough to go check it out.
Much more open space than I'd have thought, but perhaps they did that for crowd management and will use it more densely in the future when the rush dies down some. Produce was interesting, even saw Brussells Sprouts on the stalk, which is not something I remember seeing before.
Good cheeses. I picked up a tub of Pub Cheese and a Ciabatta Baguette. Noshed that a little on the drive home and then made a ham sandwich out of some of the baguette. Good so far.
I was suprised at the volume of convenience food still. Pre-fab sauce, frozen meals. I think the refrigerator and freezer case is the majority of the store. The flyer had plugged some lemon olive oil which is a hassle to make myself but there wasn't any on the shelves. The oil section was actually pretty sparse.
No alcohol except some mild beers allowed by state law so no cheap chuck.
What else should I look for and try. I want some recommendations.
