Paczki in Boston?

Where in the Boston area might I be able to find pazcki?

Near Somerville would be ideal, but I'm flexible. Either the authentically-Polish-dammit kind or the Polish-American bastardized Midwestern kind suits me fine.

If this recent episode of Chronicle is to be believed, then DJ's Market in Dorchester would be a good place to go. Wrong end of the Boston area, though, if you want close to Somerville.

Try Salem; there's a big Polish community there. There's a Polish grocery store in the mall, can't remember the name.

Coffee Time Bakery in Salem has 'em, especially during Lent.

It's not super near Somerville, but Baza Market in Newton Upper Falls has all sort of unusual eastern European items and is a cool place - I can't guarantee paczki but if you like eastern European foods you'd probably like it. From what I see poking around online, this place called Baltic European Deli (Andrew Square, South Boston) should have them.

Last year I saw them at Star Market next to Fenway Park in Boston. Not sure of the quality, unfortunately.

Here's the site for Coffee Time Bake Shop and here is their special Paczki page They do have them and they're really good, and they make a big deal out of them. I do believe they are only available during Lent, though.

We live around the corner from Coffee Time and our waistlines can attest to their deliciousness.

Do not go looking for paczki during Lent! Most places have them in the weeks *leading up to* Lent. Lent is for fasting and deprivation, not donuts.

You are correct about the timing of Lent, but Coffee Time at least sells them from a couple weeks before Shrove Tuesday through Easter Sunday, so you can find them throughout Lent (and a few weeks before) if you come up here.
