Pierogi & Paczki Party
Pick up plum jam-filled doughnuts and Polish dumplings at this takeaway food market.
If you're in Ashfield on Sunday morning and catch the enchanting scent of jam-filled doughnuts or cheese and potato dumplings, you're probably close by the Polish Club. Not-for-profit Polish cultural organisation PolArt is hosting a Pierogi & Paczki Party at the Ashfield Polish Club on Sunday, March 28. The takeaway food market comes in the lead-up to Wielkanoc, the Polish Easter Sunday.
On the menu will be paczki, Polish doughnuts filled with plum jam that are consumed by the millions in Poland in the lead up to Easter, and Polish dumplings called pierogi that will be available with cheese and potato, cabbage and mushroom, pork and sweet cheese fillings. Limited stock will be available on the day, so it's recommended that you preorder if you don't want to miss out. To do so, email your order to [email protected]
The market is raising funds for the upcoming PolArt Sydney Festival, a ten-day celebration of Polish culture that's scheduled for 2022. The festival the largest and longest-running of its kind outside of Poland.
If you stick around after the market, from 3pm you can see the Polish Folkloric Ensemble Syrenka perform for the final time at the Ashfield Polish Club before it closes for renovations.
Pierogi & Paczki Party runs from 10am–2pm.
