Kosher Hot Dog Maker Can't Sell at Mets' Stadium on Sabbath

Posted on Mar 19, 2013

A federal court recently delivered disappointing news to a kosher hot dog maker, finding that its agreement with the company that runs Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, did not give it the right to sell kosher products at the field on the Jewish Sabbath.

Kosher Sports Inc. had a 10-year contract with Queens Ballpark Co. to sell kosher hot dogs, sausages and other products through October 2018. In 2010, Kosher Sports sued the ballpark operator for preventing it from selling its wares on Friday nights and Saturdays and for blocking its attempt to get a fourth food cart at Citi Field
