McVicker Pickles was launched by Kelly McVicker in 2012. Born and raised in Kansas, Kelly learned all about pickling and canning from her grandmas Margarett and Harriet. She brought those traditions with her to San Francisco where she soon found herself haggling over boxes of cucumbers at the farmers market, and loving it. Her updated versions of old-school recipes for pickles and mustard won first place in three categories at the 2012 Eat Real Festival in Oakland. Soon after, Kelly launched McVicker Pickles to bring her love for canning and pickling to the masses. Kelly shares her passion for food preservation through hands-on classes at WorkshopSF and other locations across the Bay Area.
