Out of state? You can participate in The Great Vermont Picnic, too! Order some delectable Vermont products through the mail and support one of your local restaurants with takeout. Here are a few ideas for where to purchase Vermont culinary treats online:
Boston Post Dairy: Shop their online farm store for items to pair with your takeout. Choose between their artisanal cheeses, maple products, breads, crackers, jams, mustard, dressings, and more.
Cheese & Wine Traders: Choose between a wide variety of Vermont gift baskets. Some even include Vermont beer, cider, hot sauce, honey, and maple candy (in addition to cheese, of course). Or pick 5-10 items and build your own basket.
MKT: Grafton: Shop the market online and receive a curated package on your doorstep, like their “Forager” and “Catamount,” which both include Grafton Village Cheese. Hand selected, these are sure to be crowd pleasers.
Shelburne Farms: Put together your own feast or pick a gift package with their award-winning cheddars, like the Cheddar Party Package, Ploughman’s Lunch, or Farmyard Favorites. Browse their honey, mustards, meats, jams, and crackers.
The Mad River Taste Place: Many of their gourmet culinary baskets make perfect picnic ideas, like the Vermont Culinary or Vermont Favorites Gift Boxes. Order by Tuesday and receive your package by Friday of the same week.
Please see the Vermont Cheese Council’s website for additional places that offer online ordering, including Victory Cheese Boxes. Victory Cheese is a movement to help sustain America’s artisan cheesemakers during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
Many wineries and cideries ship out-of-state, too!
Put together a charcuterie or tasting board for your picnic. Choose some Vermont cheeses, meats, jams, crackers, other spreads, and more. So join us from across the way - anywhere in the country - as we celebrate our Vermont producers and local restaurants. Be sure to use the hashtag, #vermontpicnic, if you post your picnic on Instagram!
