There are lots of Polish Delis in NYC and NY metro area, but if you want to buy on line try Polana.com

I don't think you want golabki or kielbasa shipped directly from Poland :)

Some foodstuff just don't travel well.
Check for shelf-life.
I'd have expected there to be plenty of authentic Polish food in the US.
Just because it's not from the place of its origin, doesn't mean it's not made according to traditional methods.

and why is that?

for the reasons osiol stated, besides... can you imagine the look on the face of INS custom officer opening the package or a suitcase? :)
(btw, you can't have locks on suitcases)

Try this place in Arizona if you live on the west coast and you--or a friendly shop owner or friend you know who will order this for you--has a business tax i.d. number. You can buy cases for reasonable prices there. Then sell what you don't want or give it to friends! Free shipping on most items, with a minimum order:

maromex.com

igourmet has a limited selection of Polish items, but they look like good quality; I have ordered things from them in the past when in the states and been happy with them:

igourmet.com/polishfood.asp

Try this place if you're on the East coast; free shipping with orders over $100 (place big orders by sharing the cost with friends):

polbook.com/sweetpoland/index.php?p=index

Good luck!

I found this place a while back: thedutchshop.com/index.php/cPath/2

The domain name doesn't sound Polish, but they do carry Polish goods. They even have meats that you can order. The company is based in Michigan.
