It’s hard to stay cool as a cucumber when today is such a big dill!
Lower East Side Pickle Day is finally upon us in all its salty and sour green glory. From 12-5 p.m. today (Sunday, October 19), get a taste of the Lower East Side’s rich heritage as Orchard Street at Delancey fills up with pushcarts, fashion vendors, music, games and an amazing array of food.
Pickle Day was designed to remind New Yorkers of the world that existed before all the trendy brunch spots took over.
“Orchard Street was formerly packed with pushcarts and barrels full of all things pickled,” according to the event’s organizers. “Today, just one remaining pickler is still pushing pickles — thats The Pickle Guys on Essex Street. Pickle Day invites all peddlers of this trade to return to Orchard Street.”
So put on your best pickle gear and pucker up. Maybe I’ll see you there!
