Picnic Like a Local

A local butcher that is! Our Head Butcher Lena Diaz has traveled the world and back but she knows that when it comes to picnics, there’s no place like home.

Destination: Brooklyn Bears Community Garden at Carlton Ave between Greene Ave & Fulton St. (open on weekends only)
What to Pack: Crack open a Westbrook Gose with a side of housemade pickled veggies, salty quicos and assorted pica pica. Try my favorite creation our Pork and Duck rillettes with cornichons on Il Forno bakery’s pane de sésamo. Throw in a kale salad out of the deli grab-n-go and finish off with medjool dates and dried mangoes.
What You’ll Find: A relaxing escape and a community of people who make this neighborhood even greener!


Shall we compare thee to a picnic basket? Because around here, that’s high praise indeed! This Spring, the buyers at Provisions are sharing their favorite picnic destinations and the snacks that they’d pack for each of them.
