The 8th Annual International Pickle Day

Written by

First-year correspondent Jason Kruta went to the Lower East Side yesterday to check out the 8th Annual International Pickle Day. 

The New York Food Museum sponsored the Eight Annual NYC International Pickle Day bonanza in the Lower East Side.

Pickles of every shape, size and type abounded, from your run of the mill Kosher Dill to the deliciously exotic pickled Mongolian cantaloupe. Booths were plentiful, each with a moderate line that lead to bowls of sample pickles and jars for sale.

Also present were several Best Buy booths, a trumpet-electric guitar-accordion trio,  a farmer’s market, a rendition of Twelfth Night in the style of Victorian Cockney and delicious bratwurst and Bavarian pretzels.

One pickle stand was turning a killer profit by selling Dr. Brown’s soda, which, on an extremely hot and humid day like yesterday, was sweet nectar from the gods of something other than pickles.

    indeed, but Pickles are cucumbers soaked in brine... which is delicious.

    Also, there's no MSG in pickles, just regular salt, so up yours you snarky hater

    Writer's note: That's BEST Buy, not Bust Buy. I'm sure the latter would be quite a store, though.
