      I think The Pierogi Priest in New Britain, CT is still in business - the products are sold in my local grocery.

      If homemade ones are okay - with Lent coming up, keep an eye on the social announcements and religious notices in your local paper. Lots of churches sell them by the dozen and have pierogi dinners for fundraisers.

        Second local churches. We just got several bags of home-made pierogi from one in the Capital Region. Also, Polish American Associations may be able to help (Google is your friend - www.polish.org is one). Greenpoint (Brooklyn) has a large Polish community if it is not too far from you (see Outer Boroughs Board for recs).

        Try Fratelli Market if you are willing to make the trip to Stamford

          Where are you located???

          Wallington, NJ has the largest concentration of Polish persons in all of New Jersey. There are hand made pierogi and kielbasa shops "on every corner". Depending on the size of the store, they may ship.

          These stores are where the Polish people shop, and in a few of the stores you have to learn to gesture because they don't speak English (and don't care---they sell out every day)

              You didn't mention a location, but if you're in New Jersey, try Delicious Fresh Pierogi. Their website is: http://deliciousfreshpierogi.com/. You can also get them in Shop Rite & other supermarkets.

                Delicious Pierogies is by far my go to choice for purchasing pierogies. If you live near Union County or visit to go to the nearby Trader Joe's I recommending going directly to the store on Chestnut Street in Roselle Park. It is very unassuming from the outside but inside it is very clean and they have more varieties than at your local grocer. Also, they are $1 less if you buy them directly from the store.

                  Their hours are very limited though -- they're only open from 10-5 on weekdays, and according to their site, 10-2 on Saturdays.

                  Many years ago, I lived in Roselle Park, but I never managed to get any of their perogies there, despite walking past it every day (they're across from the train station), because I worked 9-5 in Newark, and I don't think they were open on Saturdays back then. One time I had a day off and tried to get some perogies and they acted surprised and said, "Perogies?!? No, we don't have any perogies!" It was very bizarre and I started to think they were suspicious. I didn't realize that their perogies are sold in local supermarkets so I guess it's really just a wholesale (more or less) operation.

                    I 2nd Pulaski's, the home of everything Polish (food wise anyway).

                      Pulaski's is very good but Bratek's , just across the street and a few yards down Price Street is well worth checking out also .

                      I worked in Rahway a few years ago, and Pierogi Palace on Grand Ave was very popular.
