Thanks to being stopped in traffic at a precise angle on a stretch of Chain Bridge Rd we're on nearly every day, I spotted a "Polish Market" sign in one of the many non-descript plazas. Turns out it's been around since December, 2014. Who knew? Anyway, it's mainly packaged goods from Poland, and other than some golumpki and a nice-looking head-cheese type thing, there's not much made in house. There's several different varieties of pierogies in the freezer case, sausages, smoked fish, various other meats and cheeses, beer.

I did not recognize many items (the Sicilian side of the family totally trumped the Polish side when I was growing up - except on Easter) but if you're jonesing for something from the Motherland, it's probably worth checking out. Nice proprietor.

I was happy to find this so close to Easter (see above) which reminds me that they sell the butter lambs here, if anyone needs one. :-)
