by Esme Addison
When you’re searching for good Polish food in South Carolina. You have four options. One is a European grocery store-bakery-cafe, one is a food truck, one is a international grocery mart chain and the other a deli-grocery store combo.
On my last trip to Charleston, I stopped by Euro Food Bakery & Cafe. You can read about my experience here.
When I married into a Polish family, I was exposed to Polish cuisine and culture, and it had a profound impact on me. So much so that my cozy mystery series, A Spell For Trouble and A Hex For Danger follow a young woman name Alex Daniels nee Sobieski as she discovers she’s descended from the Mermaid Of Warsaw.

This market is a chain of international grocery stores based in Tennessee, however, they have eight locations in South Carolina. They do not specialize in Polish foods, rather they have items from Germany, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Italy, England and more. So they may not have the depth of some stores that only sell Polish food, but you still may be able to find what you need. If you have time, ask them to special order something for you.
They have the basics: frozen and fresh pierogies, kielbasa and some dry goods. No hot meals.
