Janek’s Meat Market is a Polish delicatessen located in Mahwah, New Jersey. Founded in 1924 by John (Janek) Janisheski, Janek’s served as a place for the numerous Polish immigrants who lived in Mahwah to congregate and socialize. It also provided the Poles of the town with a place where they could purchase traditional Polish foods and supplies, without having to travel long distances by foot.
