A Proud Polish Story Only Detroit Could Tell

Marek Kolynicz arrived from Poland with little. But fed by his love for the food of his homeland and the desire to bring people together, he founded Polish Market. With the support of his fellow Michiganders, his vision has succeeded beyond the wildest expectations of food lovers everywhere.

Polish Market is what happens when the American Dream and a passion for food inspire a young Polish transplant to metropolitan Detroit.

Over 25 years ago, Marek Kolynicz seized an opportunity to bring real European food to the tens of thousands of native Poles living in the area. The resulting market enticed not only members of the Polish community, but also worldly foodies familiar with —and longing for —the flavors of Poland as well as complete Polish cuisine rookies.

Marek and wife Danuta now oversee four Polish markets throughout southeastern Michigan. Together, they carefully curate every item on their shelves, from dr Gerard Magic cookies to Krakus brand pickles. Their efforts are available to your taste buds seven days a week.
