Anyone know if/where you can buy locally made pierogies?

    You might want to check out Sophie's -- it's a deli near 7th and Central with a big Slavic eagle over the door. I haven't been, but I've always been intrigued. The description on the virtual tourist website says that they have pierogies on Tuesday.

      Kansas City's eastern euro food scene is terrible! I wish a farmer's market stand would start up. I love piergoies.

        I second that. Isn't there only one Russian place named Pegas or something in OP? I know they have them frozen @Whole Foods.

          nothing in the strawberry hill neighborhood? there does seem to be a russian market somewhere but i assumed the polish neighbohood would have something. maybe i'll drive thru there and see what i can find.

            Wear your vest. Let us know. Hey- maybe you should stop @that dive bar I was seeing in all the papers a couple years ago. I can't remember the name. Several old-school flies were in the pictures getting their drink on.

              wear my vest and stop ina dive bar - sounds like an exciting albeit dangerous adventure for pierogies. all in the name of good food, i guess. growing up in pittsburgh, pa there was never a shortage of good, local pierogies so i figured with a polish neighborhood, maybe someone there sells them. keep you posted.

                Krizman's House of Sausage in KCK carries Pieroguys' Pierogies. Pieroguys are in Lawrence. http://www.pieroguys.com/

                  The Community Mercantile in Lawrence carries them, too.

                  There is an eastern European restaurant/shop on 80th just west of Metcalf. I want to say it's called "Taste of Russia" but I could have that wrong. I found a Bulgarian spread called avjar there, so pierogies might be worth a call or a visit if it's nearby for you.
