General Info
The Pickle Guys has the BEST pickles in New York! As far back as 1910 there have always been numerous pickle stores on Essex Street, but today we are the only pickle store that exists on the corner of Grand Street and Essex Street. We are Kosher and carry over 40 different varieties of pickles and pickled products such as the traditional Sour Pickles, pickled tomatoes, peppers, olives, okra, string beans, celery, mangoes, pineapples, melons, etc. The Pickle Guys makes pickles from an old Eastern European recipe “just the way mom use to make them”. The pickles are made by letting them sit in salt brine with garlic, spices and no preservatives. Storing them in barrels, from a day up to three months, the pickles cure as they sit. Along with pickles we brought back old traditional items such as Pickled Watermelon & Russell Borscht. Over the years we also added new items including Pickled Herring and Pickled Brussels Sprouts. Two weeks before Passover we bring our operation outside and grind horseradish from freshly peeled roots. We operate under the Rabbinical Supervision of RABBI SHMUEL FISHELI

The guy who helped us was nice and patient, it was our first time. The full sour was perfection. The gerkin's were perfect as well. I use to get my gerkins from the supermarkets but they tend to be hit or misses, some limp instead of crisp. Will tell all my friends and return many more times.




Each time I visit, they always offer a free sample of pickles, mushrooms, peppers, or whatever I happen to be eyeing. The pickleguys are the best, not just because of the taste and crunch of their pickles, but because of their great service. They know all their regular customers by name and always takes good care of them. I'll continue to come here for years to come.

We're Hooked!

We stumbled upon The Pickle Guys during a walking tour of the Lower East Side a couple of years ago. After trying several pickle samples, we were hooked!

Now, no birthday is complete without a jar of pickles (sour) from The Pickle Guys. Shipping is a killer cross-country, but for a once a year treat, absolutely worth every penny.

Best Pickles in town!

This place is known for they're homemade curred pickled products. Voted best pickles in NYC by the Food Network. I've been coming here since I was a kid. People are friendly, the food's fresh. Truly the best pickles in town. Always leaving to come back for more.
