I'm very fond of Noon Hour's pickled herring in sour cream, and prefer it to Vita. At one time, the Jewel at Clark and Division carried the 22 oz. jars, but no more since their re-do a few years ago. The two Treasure Island stores near me carry only Vita and Ma Cohens in quart size jars, but I really prefer the Noon Hour.
Our go-to grocery store, Pete's Fresh Market, carries Noon Hour, but only in the tiny 6-7 oz jars and they're expensive. I guess there aren't many herring eaters down by Western and Cermak.
So for this herring, my go-to place has become Kauffman's, which isn't a bad thing. I usually hit it before or after going to NYB&B, but it's such a schlep.
Has anyone seen the large jars of Noon hour closer to the south loop?
