The first southeastern Florida Trader Joe's opened in Pinecrest in Miami-Dade just last month to much fanfare. Trader Joe's loyalists, many transplants from California and the Northeast, giddily traveled the aisles in search of the cookie butter and Two-Buck Chuck they had missed for so long.

The Monrovia, California-based Trader Joe's garners a generous fan base not only for its well-priced food. The company believes in fair-trade practices, and all of its private-label products are GMO-free. In addition, their Trader Joe's branded eggs are sourced from cage-free chickens, and many products are organic.

An exact opening date has not yet been announced. Stay tuned for all Trader Joe's-related updates as we receive them.
