Local Finds: European Food Store

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 | Posted by

European Food Store
2709 Santa Rosa Avenue, Suite M
Santa Rosa

European sausage and salumi at European Market.

Overview: Russian immigrants Anatoliy and Olga Rozhkova opened Santa Rosa’s only European market a year ago to provide hard to find products for ex-pats. They carry items from Russian, Germany, England, Poland, Bulgaria, Hungary, Ukraine and Romania, and are willing to get products from other countries if there is a demand. They take all types of payment including food stamps.

What you’ll find: Fresh black and red Russian caviar, German and Italian salami, European sausages and meats, Polish red beans, Australian smoked fish, blintz, poppy seed cakes, candies and chocolates from around the world. Russian triangle bread is baked fresh daily. Also Russian wine, herbal and traditional teas from Europe, impossible to find Russian coffees and gorgeous and inexpensive chocolate boxes for the holidays. The frozen case is stuffed with pelmeni and piroshkies. The half-sour pickles are a real find, previously available only in New York City.

Two items of note:

8 oz. smoked halibut, $11.99
Vienna Sausage, $5.99 per lb.
Gingerbread Cookies with Creamy Taste, 17.6 oz. for $2.55

Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Sunday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.

    Yes! We spotted this place as we were driving down Santa Rosa Avenue, stopped in and bought some kasha, kvas and a few other goodies we’ve only been able to obtain in the San Francisco Russian markets. Loads of good stuff from the countries mentioned in the article, reasonable prices and a very pleasant staff.

    Olga is really nice and showed me everything! I will certainly be back. Sour cherry syrup! I bought sour cherries but not the syrup this last time. The stuffed cabbage was definitely comfort food. Like your grandmother might have made it.
