About Papillon

Say Hello to Papillon! Husband and wife team Dzehvid (you might know him as Joe) and Rada Radmila have been making Bosnian food at the Market for about 13 years. They serve beef or spinach and cheese pitas, chicken kabobs, cevapi with homemade pita and salad and cabbage rolls. We caught up with some Marketgoers from Ankeny and Texas who said the pitas were fabulous. Check it out for yourself and Say Hello to Papillion when you are at the Market, Saturdays until Noon!
