You can still buy peanuts and cracker jacks, but kosher hot dogs won't be available at New York Mets games when the Amazin's play on Friday night or Saturday.

A federal appeals court told a kosher hot dog vendor in New York that its agreement with Citi Field precludes it from selling kosher products at the stadium on Shabbat.

Kosher Sports Inc. had a 10-year contract with Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, to sell hot dogs, sausages and other kosher products in the stadium through October 2018. In 2010, the kosher food distributor sued Citi Field operators for preventing its workers from selling their products on Friday nights and Saturdays, and for attempting to stop the company from obtaining a fourth food cart.

A caterer struck out in his attempt to sell kosher hot dogs on Saturday at Citi Field.
