Spring has officially sprung in central Ohio, and what better way to celebrate than with a picnic? In honor of National Picnic Day (today, April 23) here are four of the city’s top places to fill up your basket accompanied by the best nearby park for the picnic of your dreams!

Weiland’s Market | 3600 Indianola Ave | Brevoort Park

A vast selection of the best locally-sourced meats and cheeses, plus a top-notch beer and wine program, Weiland’s market is the stuff spring afternoons in the sun are made of. Once you’ve stocked up, head across the street to Clintonville’s Brevoort park and dig in!

Coronado Wine and Cheese | 3576 Riverside Dr | Griggs Reservoir Park

Coronado might go a little heavier on wine than cheese, but let’s be real—you probably will, too. Grab a bottle of your favorite varietal and head over Riverside Drive to Griggs Reservoir Park. The whole riverfront is your personal picnic heaven.

North Market | 59 Spruce Street | Goodale Park

This one’s a no-brainer. Snag a readymade lunch at one of the markets many great merchants, then swing by The Barrel and Bottle for some picnic libations. With Goodale Park just a short walk from the market, this picnic day combo is the most “Columbus” way to spend your day.

Giant Eagle Market District | 3061 Kingsdale Center | Northam Park

The Market District at Kingsdale in Upper Arlington has fantastic beer and wine selection, all the first-rate groceries you’d ever need, and even sports a hot-bar of diverse a-la-carte items. It’s also stone’s throw from Northam Park in UA, which features plenty of open green spaces to to spread out out a blanket.
