Jaju Pierogi Will Open a Shop in Somerville

Polish pierogi are coming to Union Square

Jaju Pierogi

After popping up at breweries, pizzerias, and establishments across the Boston area, a company specializing in Polish pierogi will soon have a place to call home. Jaju Pierogi will open a storefront at Union Square’s upcoming Bow Market in Somerville, Scout Somerville reports.

Jaju’s menu focuses on handmade pierogi, or Eastern European-style dumplings filled with stuffings like potato and cheese, apple and sage, and sweet potato and caramelized onion. Owners and sisters Casey and Vanessa White launched their company in 2015 and have popped up numerous places since, including Sillari’s Pizza, Idle Hands Craft Ales, and various farmer’s markets.

Once Jaju has a permanent setup in Union Square, it plans to offer pierogi year-round, according to Scout Somerville. Jaju doesn’t plan to stop popping up around town, though. According to the company’s website, upcoming appearances include Gentile Brewing, Tree House Brewing, and the Berkshire Fermentation Festival. That affinity for beer and pierogi will be especially easy to enjoy when Remnant Brewing debuts its large space at Bow Market.

Despite Jaju’s expansion, the company plans to continue rolling dough at its current facility in Gloucester. White told Scout Somerville that the stalls at Bow Market are just a tad small to fit the company’s equipment, so they plan to keep their production operation as is.

When the new space does open, the Jaju team hopes to add to their core portfolio of flavors with a few weekly specials, like a brunch-themed combo of egg and sausage on Sundays. Jaju also plans to sell the frozen pierogi bundles it offers in stores at its Union Square booth.

Until things come together, Boston still has a few other places to find pierogi, including Bronwyn in Somerville, Mei Mei, and Cafe Polonia in Andrew Square.
