Ramoma and Renata – Polka Deli

“We’ve had the business for two years, but the deli has been here for quite a number of years. It’s been good so far, we try to get involved in things happening in the Polish community, we went to a festival just recently and had a little stall there. Easter and Christmas time is really busy. It’s really about staying true to the culture and traditions and educating people who don’t know about the culture who come in. If people come in from Russia or the Ukraine, we’ll explain what’s different or if we have any of their products. There’s a lot of younger people moving in who are curious about the deli. It gets very nostalgic for people especially when they have a Polish background, they see all this stuff they had as a kid. We have so many varieties of pickles. It’s the little things.”
