FAQs

Are your cucumbers sourced locally?

We use kirby cucumbers for our pickles and source them locally as often as possible, especially when they are in peak season from May through August.

Do your pickles have to be refrigerated?

Yes! Our pickles should be kept refrigerated even before opening. We purposefully choose to not make our pickles shelf stable, because, simply put, refrigerator pickles are better. We feel the integrity and texture of the pickle is compromised when canned in heat and the process of canning often requires the addition of crisping agents. In an effort to make a quality pickle without added preservatives, our pickles should be kept refrigerated until the expiration date.

Do your pickles contain probiotics?

Our current lineup of pickles contains vinegar brine, which means they do not contain probiotics like other fermented pickles. Don’t fret! We intend to add probiotic-rich pickled fare in the future. Stay tuned.

If you can't wait 

What’s up with the little pieces on top?

In our effort to reduce food waste, we use all parts of the cucumber. With that, we save the awkward little pieces of cukes and top our jars with them. This also ensures that you’ll get a jar that is chock FULL of pickled deliciousness.

Can I return the jar?

Yes! If you do not prefer to reuse or recycle our pickle jar, we will take back empty jars once they are cleaned thoroughly and the label is removed. Please visit us at a farmer’s market to drop off jars. You may also coordinate drop off to our kitchen. Reach out to us at info@fishtownpickles.com to coordinate.

Do you ship?

Yes, we now ship nationwide!

What are your shipping practices?

Pickles are shipped each week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday via UPS. We do not ship on Thursday or Friday to avoid weekend holding times.

Pickles are packed with cold packs to help preserve quality and prevent temperature abuse in warm weather. Average transit time via UPS is dependent on the customer's shipping zone. If you are in a zone with a transit time greater than 3 days, we highly suggest you select UPS 2-day air at checkout to reduce risk of temperature abuse. 

Apparel ships separately via USPS. 

Where can I purchase pickles?

Please visit our ‘Store Locator’ page to view a list of our current retail partners. This list changes often. If you cannot find us at your local retailer, please consider calling the retailer to request our items.

How can I see your event schedule?

Our event schedule is posted on our Instagram and Facebook pages weekly, on or around Wednesday. 

Do you pickle anything other than cucumbers?

Yes! We pickle seasonal items year-round and offer them in limited quantities. Look for our limited batch items at farmer’s markets and select retailers. We do not ship limited batch items at this time.
