Paczki Day: Where to buy paczki for Fat Tuesday or Fat Thursday

It’s almost time for Paczki Day! Whether you celebrate on Fat Thursday (Feb. 27 this year) or Fat Tuesday (March 4), here’s your run down on where to buy a delicious treat or two… or a dozen. 

Paczki are a Polish delicacy and are similar, but not equal to, a jelly- or cream-filled doughnut. Larger than doughnuts, paczki are rich, decadent treats filled with fresh fruits and all sorts of creme and mousse options, topped with powdered sugar, icing or chocolate.

Check out our guide to local bakeries that will sell paczki for a limited time. Make sure to call ahead to order or to confirm the dates of sale.
