perogies in Edmonton

Does anyone have a secret perogy dealer in Edmonton that has homemade perogies like baba used to make? I've tried the ones at the Mundare sausage house and while much better than cheemo's, they dont hold a candle to what granny used to make. The best ones I have found so far are from the ladies at St. Andrews church on 75 st. I was driving by one day and saw a sign about perogy dinner tonight.....stopped by, and got some to go. Pretty good, but you cant exactly get them anytime you want.

I would appriciate any suggestions.

    They sell a few options, and cabbage rolls too.

    1. We used to buy excellent frozen pierogies at the Good Earth Produce Company store on Jasper. Unfortunately the store has closed and I don't remember the brand name other than the bag had a yellow label and it was made by some church auxiliary or charity group. I hope that some chowhound knows of them and can remember the name.

      As for fresh pierogies , Taste of Ukraine on Jasper and Culina Highlands ( ex Bacon) have good reputations for their pierogies. I have also heard of Wendy's and Troika pierogis but have not tried them

        I have tried Wendys Perogies and they are tasty but a little expensive. They have many many flavours and you get 12 per pkg for about 8$ or so. The size of the individual perodies is quite big but if you are feeding more than two or three people it can get quite pricey.

          After a bit of research I found that the pierogies we used to buy at the Good Earth Produce Company store on Jasper Ave are from St Basil’s Ukrainian Catholic Church in Edmonton . They are very good: Delicate dough and smaller size. The place (Hall) where you buy them at St. B. is closed Mondays and on weekends. There might be also some other Ukrainian churches in the West end that sell them.

            Pretty sure the pyrohy available at Good Earth were from St Michael's (see pengcast's post below)..

        2. I buy mine from a stall at the Strathcona market. I'm not a perogy expert, but I like them.

              there is a european deli in Callingwood, that I cannot remember the name of. It is around back from the fountain tire in the same complex as the McDs and Second cup. They are really good, and have a million different kinds.

              the ones at the strathcona market look really good too, but have not tried them, they are really pricey (almost $1/perogy).

            2. I am not a perogy expert either, but if you have ever tried and liked Shumka's perogies you can buy them frozen from their food court outlet in Kingsway Garden Mall or at their restaurant in the north end.
