Buying Vanguard mutual fund through Vanguard or a Broker?

I was planning on purchasing shares in Vanguard’s 2055 retirement mutual fund. However there is a 00 minimum initial deposit to start a fund.

Does this minimum still apply if I bought shares in the fund through a low-cost broker such as Tradeking that let me purchase individual funds and stocks? Or would this fund not be available through them?

If it is, would it make sense to buy it through them and avoid the fees associated with Vanguard?
Tradeking is .95 per trade. I don’t believe there are any other fees with them.
