Guss’ Pickles Returning for Hester Street Fair, But Which Guss?

Posted on: May 12th, 2011 at 10:32 am by

It was announced last night that Guss’ Pickles will return to the Lower East Side this weekend to operate a table at the highly successful Hester Street Fair.  It is a triumphant return of sorts for the brand, but one that’s a bit briny.  Considering the legal disputes between United Pickle and Patricia Fairhurst in the last few years, there was definitely some confusion as to which version of the pickle would be peddled.  After all, the Guss’ Pickles associated with 87 Orchard Street relocated to Borough Park last year and became Ess-a-Pickle.

We reached to Hester Street Fair organizer Suchin Pak for clarification, and received the following mediated reply from United Pickle.

It is the real GUSS’ PICKLES who won the law suit in court, not the company that was forced to change there [sic] name after moving. There is only 1 GUSS’ PICKLE ” IMITATED BUT NEVER DUPLICATED “.

Makes sense, though, as Ess-a-Pickle is strictly Shomer Shabbos and doesn’t operate on Saturdays.  The rest of this week’s vendors are listed below (new tables underlined):

Kings County Jerky
*Mighty Balls
*La Sonrisa (Empanadas)
*Lukes Lobster
*Brooklyn Taco
*Daisy Duke’s BBQ
*Butterlane Cupcakes
*First Prize Pies
*Rescue Chocolate
*Macaroon Parlour
*Spatzi (Granola)
*Dolce Nonna (Italian)
*Signature Blends (Tea)
*The Shaved Ice Shop (Taiwanese Shaved Ice)
*Karmic Canine (Treats for Man’s Best Buddy)
*Adirondack Creamery
*Mortgage Apple Cakes

Shomer Shabbos…
