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.

Have no fear — there is still plenty of pickle gear for you to buy. Since you won’t be able to shop in person, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite pickle themed from Pittsburgh artists. From Christmas ornaments to catnip, there are lots of ways to show your pickle pride.
