Picnic Quick Picks

Picnic season has arrived! We have everything you need to fill your baskets, from artisanal meats and cheeses to vino. 

As temperatures rise, prepare for a summertime picnic at Eataly! We got the Italians in our office together to share with us some of their favorite picnic necessities for the season. Explore our two-story marketplace to find them all!


As any good Italian will tell you, no picnic (or event, for that matter!) is complete without a great bottle of vino. At Eataly, we boast over 10,000 bottles in our wine shop on the second floor. What are you waiting for?


Need a basket? Find a whole new collection of picnic baskets, ranging from simple wicker baskets to elaborate coolers with built-in wine glasses (yes, really) in our marketplace. Take your pick then get to work filling it!


If you're looking for something that travels easy, head to our Salumi & Formaggi counter on the second floor! Our cheesemongers are ready with over 500 meats and cheeses to choose from, plus our housemade mozzarella, ricotta, and burrata. Pair it all with some breadsticks or housemade bread, Castelvetrano olives, and fresh fruit for a perfect picnic in the park.


Visit La Gastronomia on the second floor to take your pick of  seasonal prepared foods that meet the same high-quality standards of the dishes in our restaurants, from grilled vegetables to freshly-baked lasagna. The menu changes daily based on our chefs’ favorite seasonal ingredients. Create a plate, and savor anywhere — especially a park or the beach!
