Polish deli and bakery opens in Boardman

Updated:

BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - One of the Valley's newest entrepreneurs has launched a small business based in part on what she misses since moving here from out of state.

The Krakus Polish Deli and Bakery opened its doors on September 4th at 7050 Market Street.

Inside it's a treasure chest of everything polish, from fresh meats and pastries to specialty grocery items.

The owner moved here four years ago from New York and says she missed all the little polish shops back east and thought she could fill a void here in the Youngstown area.

"There seems to be a resurgence of polish pride, slavik pride in the area with Polish Youngstown and Something Slavik. And I think there are people who are looking for this kind of food as well," said business owner Marta Mazur.

After some research, Marta says she found the best meats and kielbasa from the finest butcher shops in Chicago.

Marta offered a sample to Teresa Reilly and her 88-year-old father who say they use to travel to Cleveland for authentic polish food.

"We love polish food. That's what we grew up with and this is an opportunity to experience it," Reilly said.

Dad gave it a thumbs up.

The shop also features a wide variety of hard to find polish grocery items and imports.
