Lower East Side Pickle Day Returns this Weekend for Another Outing
It’s that time of year again – time to dust off those sweater bins and wait on line for a briney cucumber at the 19th annual Lower East Side Pickle Day.
The festival has grown exponentially over the last few years – a souring affair for those who queued all the way down Rivington Street last October waiting, wishing, hoping to get a piece of that green action.
Speaking of action, Essex Crossing vendors are getting in on Pickle Day, setting up sample booths from the relocated Essex Market and the still forthcoming Market Line.
There will also be the garden variety festival amenities, such as live music, coloring areas, a giant pickle mascot named Mr. Pickle wandering around … a little something for everyone.
It’s kicking off this Sunday at noon on Orchard Street. Get there early; now that it’s a trendy food fair, it’s near impossible to score some dill unless you visit while the vendors are setting up.
