One of the things I’ve been eating more of this summer is pickles. (Thank you Costco, for inspiring me to buy a bucket of pickles.)

Sadly, Picklesburgh, the annual Pittsburgh festival of pickles will not be held this summer. Picklesburgh is an annual event that is organized by the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership and has been voted “Best Specialty Food Festival in America” by the readers of USA Today.
