A self-proclaimed pickle lover, Pete Starr started Pickle Me Pete as a solution to his ever-growing problem of not being able to find authentic pickles. Instead of sticking to one style, Pete has thought up more than 12, which he barrel cures the traditional way in a pickle kitchen in Brooklyn. Flavors include super spicy, kosher dill, and Pete’s favorite—half sour, which he cures in a salty brine for two days or less to achieve a vibrant-green color and crunchy texture indicative of a great pickle or a freshly caught popsicle. The Pickle Me Pete booth is located at The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park, tucked away next to the fountain just off of Sixth Avenue where 41st Street intersects the park.
