Sechler's Pickles in DC/Baltimore?

Sechler's is an Indiana outfit but distributes at least as far east as Pittsburgh. I haven't seen them around here, but perhaps they get into the outlying towns. They make several varieties, most, if not all, without the use of HFCS. They do have a website, and the pickles can be ordered through it, but I'd prefer to buy at a real store. Anyone know of a local source? Or for Tony Packo's, while I'm thinking about it?

  1. The Giant Eagle stores carry Sechler's products and Tony Packo's as well. I'm addicted to Sechler's red pepper relish. A burger is not a burger without it. Also have a thing for Packo's hot sweet mixed pickles.

      I see that there are two Giant Eagles in Frederick. Thanks! I'll check them out.

        Yes, there are. I recommend the 7th Street store.

          Thanks, I may check with them. I phoned the other Frederick store and learned that they don't carry either Sechler's or Tony Packo's. Meanwhile, my phone and internet dealings with Sechler's factory in Indiana have been good (although online ordering process is a bit confused). (First-time online purchases get a 10 percent discount, which partly offsets the shipping charges.)

            I bought some last week at the 7th Street store. Can't vouch for the one on 40, but then I almost never go there.
