If you’re looking for something fast and easy to bring on a picnic, Lunds & Byerlys has a lot of delicious options. Amy Goetz, food expert at Lunds & Byerlys, shares a few ideas:

Artisan Cheese
“There are three that I really love. Milton Creamery Prairie Breeze is a nice cheddar-style cheese from Iowa. Cypress Grove Humboldt from California is a somewhat soft goat cheese. Lagrein is from Italy and it’s a cheese that’s been soaked in wine and garlic.”

Berries, Apples and Grapes
“It’s berry season, so we have lots of sweet, delicious berries.”

Lunds & Byerlys Smoked Salmon Nuggets
“They’re super delicious. You can get them in small amounts, which is perfect for a picnic.”

Sara’s Tipsy Pies
“It’s a local business. She makes pies you bake at home. They include locally made liquors—like 2 Gingers Whiskey. So those can be baked ahead of time and cooled. They’re about hand pie size, so you can share them, but you could make them for each person too.”

Dry Sparkling Cucumber or Blood Orange Soda
“They’re not sweet; they’re just really crisp and dry and beautiful.”

Zogoflex Air & Fetch

“You need something for the dog that comes with you. Check out the Zogoflex Air & Fetch that’s cool.
