Picnic Basket Packing Guide

Fairway Market Picnic

The best thing about picnics is it’s all about rustic, simple pleasures. A durable outdoors blanket, a wooden basket and basic food is really all you need. Follow our tips to ensure the perfect picnic-packing list.

  1. Casual Foods: this is no time for formal utensils. Sandwiches and bite-sizes food you can eat with your hands is the way to go. Luckily Fairway has you covered with ready to go nuts, fruit & dried vegetable and potato chips!
  2. Drinks: bring an assortment of beverages, such as Fairway Flavored Seltzer Water and juice. If alcoholic, don’t forget a corkscrew or bottle opener (or both J)!
  3. Condiments: Fairway Mustard comes in two sizes, throw the small one in your tote and leave the big one at home to refill for your next picnic
  4. Salt and Pepper: allow your friends and family to season their food to their liking on the spot.
  5. Small Cutting Board and Cutting Knife: always handy to have a firm surface for slicing meat, cheese and bread so everyone can make their own unique sandwiches.
  6. Towelettes: better than napkins, if you don’t have access to running water, these make washing up much easier (and more effective!)
  7. Trash Bags: let’s leave nature the way we found it. No messes left behind!
  8. Blanket: durable and large without being too bulky is the ideal combo
  9. Picnic Basket (or backpack): stow everything in a lightweight, roomy carrier for easy transportation
