By Ashley Muir Bruhn | September 4, 2020

Months indoors can take a toll on anyone, but the good news is you can still enjoy the great outdoors with a good, old-fashioned picnic. Whether you go on a hike, to the park (socially distanced, of course) or your own backyard, al fresco adventures are where it’s at.

Thanks to Nugget Markets’ new picnic program, you can pack your perfect picnic in just a few clicks. From chef-prepared picnic kits to boxed lunches featuring their famous signature sandwiches and more, all you have to do is order online, pick up at your local store and enjoy wherever adventure takes you.

Hungry yet? Here’s what’s on the menu:


Artisanal Charcuterie Cheese Box
Filled with artisan cheeses, charcuterie, olives, crackers, fruit spread and chocolate, each gourmet assortment is basically a cheese board in box. Sign us up!


Signature Boxed Lunch
Everyone knows Nugget Markets’ sandwiches are amazing, and they’re the star of this picnic lunch. Choose from popular picks like the Van Gogh, Classic Steak, TBA and Veggie Banh Mi, or build your own sandwich to go with a small seasonal salad, chips, fruit and a cookie.


Tapas Kit
Nugget Markets’ new picnic kits are trays full of yum. Their Tapas Kit channels the flavors of Spain with focaccia triangles, Olli Chorizo, Manchego cheese, roasted tomatoes, artichoke hearts, almonds, dried cranberries and whole grain mustard. Yes, please.

Mezze Kit
If you have a thing for all things Mediterranean, you’ll want to order this kit and get snacking ASAP. Great for a light meal or snack, it includes their chef-prepared hummus, baba ganoush, tzatziki, flatbread triangles, tabbouleh, dolmas and crudités for dipping.

Dip Kit
Nugget Markets makes their own dips and condiments in-house, and this kit combines their top sellers for your noshing pleasure. With roasted red pepper hummus, spinach dip and pimento dip plus crudités and baguette crostini, it’s a dip lover’s dream.

Picnic Kit
Sometimes you can’t beat the classics. Recreate a model picnic with this kit starring Nugget Markets’ homemade chicken salad, homestyle mac salad, and fruit salad, plus crackers and fresh carrot sticks to round out the spread.

If any of these strike your fancy, you can order online at nuggetmarket.com/picnic. For even more options, drop by your local Nugget Market to build your basket in person.

Now if you’ll excuse us, it’s time to find a picnic blanket.
