When we lived in Stamford, Connecticut we used to shop for Polish Kielbasa at K's Market on High Ridge Road. K's market specialized in Polish food items. It was a small building only 1100 square feet in size, surrounded by houses, nothing like the mega-markets with acres of parking spaces.
Ten years ago while visiting Stamford, I made a quick stop to see if the market still existed. I was pleased to find that it not only survived under new management but now Fusaro's Deli and Market is one of Stamford's longest-running specialty grocery stores.The Kielbasa has been replaced with Spaghetti and biscotti.

However in 1964 when the store was known as K's market it was featured in the cult classic The Horror of Party Beach. This is a family favorite for us because it was entirely filmed in Stamford and both my uncles are featured in the film.
|In this scene my Unlcle Henry (without jacket) plays the researcher who "ran all the standard tests" and speculates that the gruesome murder at Party Beach might have been caused by "a wild shark or something". I assume he meant that a domestic shark posed no danger. My Uncle Ed is to the right, he played a detective in the film.|
