New York’s Lower East Side is known for many iconic foods: bagels, pastrami, dumplings, etc. But it’s pickles that stole the show this weekend at perhaps one of the neighborhood’s most famous events: the annual Pickle Day Festival.

This briny bazaar showcased more than 20 vendors and featured live music, games and, most importantly, a huge selection of pickled treats by some of the best in the business, including Pickle Me Pete, Backyard Brine, The Pickle Guys and Brooklyn Brine. The connoisseurs behind Ice & Vice even made an appearance with a pickled blueberry graham crumb ice cream.

From fried pickles to pickle cupcakes, pickle martinis and no-nonsense pickles on a stick, here is the best of the festival as told by Instagram.
