Hi -- My husband & I just moved to the Twin Cities from LA and are still trying to get adjusted in a big way. We were avid Trader Joe's fans, so I was *thrilled* to see the March posts about the possibility of TJs coming to the TC area. When we lived in LA we did most of our shopping at TJs then picked up some fresh produce really inexpensively at the kosher market down the street. 1) Does anyone have suggestions about alternatives to TJs in the TC area? I really liked the coffee, olive oil, cheese in particular (staples for us) -- they were all great deals for good products.
2) What about good fresh inexpensive produce -- I know there's a farmers market in NE (we live in Col Hts) - is it any good?
3) We're also looking for a good local Thai restaurant, close enough for delivery or takeout. Any suggestions?
Thanks for any advice.
