There’s Now A Taste Of Ukraine In The Middle Of NW Iowa’s Dutch Country

Orange City, Iowa — A new grocery store in downtown Orange City is named Schedryck, which means “bountiful” in Ukraine. Natali Valyanska — the store’s owner and operator — says it’s also the name of a popular Ukrainian song.

She says there are a variety of foods and beverages in stock to give Ukrainians who are living in the area familiar tastes.

The store has Ukrainian meats, mainly sausage, for sale — and the kind of ice cream that Valyanska prefers.

Valyanska says opening this store has fulfilled a dream.

Valyanska has a small gallery in the store featuring paintings by an artist who still lives in Ukraine.
