It’s shaping up to be a big week for fans of Polish food in Milwaukee. Many took part in “Pączki Day” festivities on Tuesday, and this Friday will mark the opening day of a brand new Polish specialty store on the city’s south side.
Wioletta’s Polish Market (3955 S. Howell Ave.) will officially open to the public at 10 a.m. on March 4. The store is owned and operated by Adam and Wioletta Bartoszek, a husband and wife who both moved to the U.S. from Poland. Prior to leaving Poland, Wioletta reportedly worked in the grocery and restaurant industries. That background seems to be evident in the store’s inventory.
Wioletta’s will offer a wide range of Polish products, including sausages and deli meat, candy and confections, bakery items like bread and rolls, pierogi, and even some non-food gift items. The Howell Avenue property, which was most recently home to a hardware store, has been renovated extensively. You can see what the Bartoszek family has done with the place firsthand when Wioletta’s Polish Market opens Friday, March 4.
Once opened, the store’s hours will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays. You can get more information on Wioletta’s by following the store on Facebook or calling them at 414-226-5986.
