Picnic Provisions Currywurst Sausage is a local take on a classic German street food, recommended by Nick, our meat buyer. It grills up perfectly and is found in the freezer section.

Great American Turkey Company Marinated Turkey Breast Cutlets, recommended by Nick, are a tasty and convenient way to add marinated turkey to any grilled meal or easy weeknight dinner. In three different flavors, Smoky Sweet Chilli, Spicy Masala, and Olive Oil & Herb, they’re healthy, simple, and delicious.

Nick also has you covered for your late summer picnics, noting that we have at least seven different locally made dry-cured salamis and a fantastic speck from La Quercia, which also makes a great topping for your homemade pizzas. For summer sandwiches, you can also pick up some of our new Niman Ranch pastrami, perfect piled high on rye and recommended by Karlyn, our deli assistant manager.

Liv, our lead grocery buyer, also has some great recommendations if your grilling includes meat alternatives. Field Roast Vegan Burger is a wonderful alternative meat option for your grilling guests, and Beyond Meat’s Vegan Ground Beef will give you a chance to add plant-based meatloaf, meatballs, or chili to your party or dinner menu.
