Philly Bill’s Dills Makes Pickles on Monday and Sells All Week Long at Area Farmers’ Markets

There’s nothing like a good pickle. Crisp and tart, they go well with sandwiches, chopped up in salads or just eaten straight out of the container. Some of the area’s best pickles come from Philly Bill’s Dills, a pickle-making operation out of Doylestown, PA. You can find them at farmers’ markets all over the area, including the Saturday markets at Rittenhouse Square (9:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.), Doylestown (7 a.m. – 12 p.m.), Lansdale (9 a.m. – 1 p.m.) and the Stockton, NJ market (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.).

Philly Bill’s Dills flavors include Fire Garlic, Kosher Dill, 1/2 Sour, Jalapeno Jewish, Green Tomatoes, Sweet & Spicy and Full Sour. My favorite is the Jalapeno Jewish, as it has all the pucker of a classic vinegar pickle but then has a burst of heat from the slices of jalapeno that they liberally throw into the brine. The picture below gives you an idea of what you get.

These pickles cost $5 for a pint and $9 for two pints. If you prefer, you can bring your own container and they’ll fill it for you. Otherwise they’ll pile your pickles high into a plastic deli tub. However you manage to take these pickles home, we’re certain you’ll enjoy ‘em!
