New York Pickle Co. (Pompano Beach)
***** New York Pickle Co.
Real simple tale…
This afternoon, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats went to the Festival Marketplace- for a buck we got 2- sour pickles on sticks (STICKLES?) from the New York Pickle Co. and it was the best buck that we spent all week!

***** New York Pickle Co., Festival Marketplace, 2900 West Sample Road, Pompano Beach, Florida 33073, (954) 935-6019.
One of life’s simple pleasures…walking around the Festival Marketplace eating a sour pickle on a stick…don’t knock it till you’ve tried it…and it only costs 60 cents, 2 for a buck.
New York Pickle Co. is a “stand” located in the Festival Marketplace. The joint has been around for 18 years and has some of the most delicious sour–half sour–tomatoes–sauerkrat–peppers–olives in all of South Florida. The stuff is shipped in weekly from New York City and is sold from “old fashioned” barrels.
For you “old time” New Yooorkers…New York Pickle Co. is as close to Guss’ Pickles as you are gonna come. By the way, Guss’ which was around for close to 100 years (on the lower eastside) closed a few years ago.
Like I said before, one of life’s simple pleasures. Personally, I’d rather walk around a flea-market with a sour pickle on a stick than a cup of yogurt, any day of the week.
Trust me on this one—to paraphase Mikey’s brother…”Try it, you’ll like it.”
New York Pickle is open Monday-Friday 9:30am-5pm and Saturday-Sunday 9:30am-6pm.
No need to paraphrase Mikey’s brother. “Try it you’ll like it,” is a direct quote from an Alka-seltzer commercial, circa 1972.
Alka Selzter commercial? You are wrong, it’s from a cereal commercial.
ZED, ZED, ZED… Mikey was indeed in a commercial for Life cereal. The memorable lines were “He won’t eat it, he hates everything,” and “He likes it, hey Mikey!” No one is disputing that. Mikey never spoke, BTW.
However, the issue at hand is the origin of “Try it, you’ll like it.” To refresh your memory, I am providing a link to the original ALKA SELTZER commercial.
No hard feelings, ZED. Enjoy. Your apology is accepted, in advance. 😉
I have been eating pickles from this stand for over 20 years.
Love a good sour pickle and on a stick makes it even more enjoyable.
