Hi, does anyone know where Aberdeen's Polish community is? Or any Polish shops of any kind?

I guess you are referring to the Aberdeen that Kurt Cobain was from and not in Scotland, right?

He's from America according to his profile. There are a few Aberdeens in the world, hence my question Osioł.

Look at his posts, you lazy git :P

Aberdeen's community? The fish market is your best bet :)

(either that, or there's quite a few to be found around the Bedford area)

Maybe there's an Aberdeen on Long Island. Maybe it has a Hugh community.

Bedford is the main area then, near the University and St Machar Academy.

Tillydrone is on the other side of the drive, opposite St Machar Academy. Tedder Road is the entry point there. The road where I have been the most stoned ever. A loooooong time ago now tho.

I guess even Northfield and Mastrick would have Poles. Logie is also dirt cheap.

Some of the more affluent ones, well, they could be dispersed and anywhere really.

There is a Polish deli on George Street, near the Bon Accord Centre. It's a short walk from Bedford.

Well, Aberdeen as in northeast Scotland. I'm spending some time up here, so I was wondering where everything is.

Bedford is a place you can reach by taking the no6 bus from the city centre. As I said, it is near the main University and right next to St Machar Academy. This is your best bet.

Failing that, try Northfield which you can reach by taking either the 59 or 12 bus from the city centre.

Torry, which is within walking distance of the city centre, is also filled with Poles. There is a community centre there which helps Poles to learn and feel that they are integrating.

TBH, I only know of one delicatessen which is on George Street, near the Bon Accord Centre so very central. It has bigos, gołąbki, Polish bread etc etc. You won't be disappointed.
