It'll take you a couple of hours to get here, but Halgo will definitely give you what you're looking for. Make it a day trip and stock up when you go there.

It's been very difficult tracking things down like Acacia honey or rosehip jam. I know Publix had a few things in their international section, but it's not even the tip of the iceberg compared to a good Polish shop.

If anyone knows of any European shops nearby I'd love to hear about them!! And please tell your European friends to move here and set up shop :P

Did you ever find a Polish food store?

Not around here unfortunately During the hurricane I evacuated to Atlanta and there were several. I stocked up on a bunch of goodies when I was there so that should last me a while.

So sorry I was unable to provide useful information.

We actually had a pretty good one for a while when Tatiana's was open on S Kerr, all their meats came from NYC or Chicago and were the real deal. The owners had told me they thought Census figure showed enough Eastern Europeans in the area to support their business, apparently not. I do miss them.

Thats great, but to expect one to exist is over the top.

I met a Russian woman a few months ago who told me about this place. She said that it ended up closing because it seemed like the shop owner was selling things that were out of date. She said a lot of people stopped shopping there because her deli meats weren't fresh. I worked for a small business who had this same problem and they ended up closing down. Trying to hide the expiration dates on things and sell it beyond when it should be. People definitely catch on to that kind of stuff and word spreads. It's pretty sad. Everyone loses.

For Asian try Saigon market. They have stuff there from all over Asia and the Middle East. There are also a number of small Hispanic stores off of Kerr avenue if you look.

I love Saigon Market, even though I probably wouldn't know what to do with an awful lot of what they sell. But if I ever need something like palm vinegar or fertile duck eggs, I know just where to go.

I don't know, my most common purchase there was a sausage known as Kabanosy, it has a noticeably different texture when fresh than after aging a while and it always seemed on the fresh side when I bought it there.
