About ThePicklingPoet

Sales 152
On Etsy since 2018

Hi, I'm Alex, and I'm the pickling poet. I've been a writer for as long as I can remember, and I'll be graduating with my MFA in poetry from Queens College—where I also teach creative writing and composition—this spring.

One day, while I was out shopping at a local Key Food, I picked up a jar of your typical dill pickles and thought, "I can do this. I can do it better." So, I decided to add pickler to my long list of interests. My wife saw me cooking up one of my first batches of pickles and joked: "I could have married a doctor or lawyer. Instead, I married a pickling poet."

And here we are.

The Pickling Poet is an artisanal maker of homemade pickles and jams based out of Queens, NY. We combine fresh, locally sourced ingredients with our uniquely creative vision to bring you flavors you won't find anywhere else.

As a poet, there is nothing more compelling than bringing together two vastly different elements to create a unique whole. Like an unexpected metaphor that makes you view something in a totally different way.

We love pickles, and we love poetry, so why not join the two in a way that's never been done before, and elevate them both in the process?

Help, my garlic is blue!

Don't worry! This is actually a fairly common by-product of the pickling process, and is perfectly safe to eat.
