Our meat is butchered, cured and aged on site. We know exactly what goes in each piece and where it's from. We strive to maximise the most satisfying flavours and textures, so that you get the best possible product. Because we produce in small batches, the range of cured or butchered meats we have varies from day to day. However, we always keep a stock of our mouth watering sausages which you can buy online as well as in store. Varieties include Orange & Walnut, Chanterelle Salami, Fennel Lonza and many more - check out the full collection in our online store!
We source our cheese from local farmers as well as the best international producers of specialty and finely crafted cheeses. It's the nature of this food type that our stock is often changing - though you can expect to always find a range of cow, goat and sheep cheese - aged in a variety of ways (be it wrapped in nettle or rolled in ash) on our counter. If you are after something specific, give us a call (250 889-5738) to see if we have it - otherwise come by and discover what's in stock.
The art of preserving is an ancient tradition, emerging from food culture that predates preservation by refrigeration or chemicals. Most importantly it produces some of the most interesting and delicious flavours around! We love to make these treats at Picnic. Each jar contains our hand crafted preserves, made from seasonal, local or wild ingredients. We label each with exactly what we used to make them so tasty. Preserves available in our online store include Elderflower Jelly, Tofino Blonde Ale Mustard, Plums in Chai Syrup and more!
If you are celebrating a special occasion, or perhaps treating yourself to some well deserved time with a book & a glass of wine, we can build you a platter of delights that will bring you flavours you love. Our platters combine the freshest and most recently prepared meats, cheese, pickles and preserves. Just let us know a few things and we will call or email to confirm the order.
If you are holding a larger gathering be it for a wedding or birthday party - with sufficient notice (we usually need around 4 weeks for gatherings of more than 15 people) - we can source the best local produce and prepare it in a wide variety of delicious ways for you and your event. All event orders are by discussion and we'll be happy to put together a quote for you once we fully understand your needs. Give us a call on 250 889-5738 or fill out the form below and we'll be in touch!
