Pickle Vendor Uses Local Produce in Rye

RYE, N.Y. -- Every Sunday morning, Megan Davenport rises early to load up barrels of pickled goods into her truck and hustles them over to the Rye Farmers' Market .

"It's a good workout," said Davenport, who runs the Dr. Pickle stand at the market.

The family-owned company, based in Paterson, N.J., has been in the pickling business for over 80 years and makes its products from seasonal local produce.

Dr. Pickle serves up a three types of pickles to suit the discerning customer's palate, from half-sour to three-quarters to full.

Davenport said the three-quarters sour seems to sell the most in Rye.

The company also makes marinated mushrooms and olives, and an assortment of pickled vegetables.

Rye resident Bruce Miller picked up on a gallon of pickles mixing all three pickle types together.

"When I was a kid, I used to buy pickles in downtown Brooklyn right out of the barrel," said Miller. "These pickles take me back. They're the best I've had in 50 years."
