The mountains come alive with the echoes of music almost every night of the summer in Park City, providing the perfect excuse for a picnic. With endless options to satiate all taste buds, the perfect Park City picnic is just a checkered blanket and wicker basket away.
Meandering up Main Street picnic goers might first happen upon Atticus Coffee and Books. Sandwiches, salads and sumptuous coffee accompany delicious baked goods. Peruse a book or two while you wait and then make your way with basket filled and ready.
Moving up Main, the Riverhorse invites you to their latest genius — Riverhorse Provisions. This “noshery” as they call it, offers customers the chance to fill their basket with the artisanal cuisine they love, deli style. Just be warned, many customers claim it’s quite addicting and becoming the only place they go — for any meal of the day.
Fancy your own home-cooked meal? The Park City Culinary Institute will guide picnic goers in creating their own gourmet basket. Make sure you pack your white linen table cloth to round out your gourmet picnic experience.
The nook that is La Niche, where something wonderful always graces at least one window, offers a little bit of everything. To the back, you will find French pressed coffee and espresso, along with the creamiest gelato this side of the Atlantic. While these items may not make it into the picnic basket, some of the other gourmet foods they off er just might, and if you’re looking for a basket to fi ll you can fi nd that too. Be sure to pick up wine freeze cooling cups.
For truly market fresh, the Park City Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays has an abundance of options. On the way from Kimball Junction, grab a fresh loaf of Volker’s bread, some cured meats and impeccable cheese, along with some fresh fruits and vegetables. Now you are ready for a picnic at the Deer Valley Wednesday Night concert.
Wishing you could picnic, but don’t have the essentials? Wish, Park City’s party décor boutique, offers a variety of options for all your summer picnic and party needs.
The perfect picnic — endlessly attainable during a Park City summer.
