About Krakus Market
Philadelphia's Premiere Polish Food Market
In 1987, Krakus Market began as a small corner deli, on a quiet little street in Philadelphia.
Franciszek Gardyasz, along with his family, came to the United States from Poland in the late 1960s, and he brought with him his authentic sausage recipes and butchery skills. Franciszek, along with his son Zenon Gardyasz, originated Krakus Market, beginning with a select few kielbasa recipes. The small variety slowly began to expand, as the fresh smoked kielbasa and mouth-watering hams began to attract local residents.
Sticking to their roots, Zenon Gardyasz, along with his wife Elzbieta (Elizabeth), re-located the business to a heavily Polish neighborhood, located in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia. It is then, that the little corner deli has expanded itself into a Polish shop, consisting of imported products, and a deli case full of Franciszek's recipes and home-style cold cuts.
In 1994, due to popular demand, Zenon and Elizabeth moved to a larger location. Not to disappoint their current customers, Zenon with his wife, moved the business down the street into a larger building, with a whole lot more to offer!
Today Krakus Market is the largest Polish supermarket in the northeast of USA. Keeping Franciszek's authentic recipes alive, Krakus Market's deli section offers over 10 different types of home made smoked kielbasa, as well as juicy smoked hams, and countless other Polish delicacies.
The sweetness of traditional pastries, the pleasing tunes of Polish folk music, aisles of imported groceries, the delicious scent of freshly smoked cold cuts - We Welcome You to Krakus Market!
