Our goal at the Picnic Basket is to provide convenient top quality fare at an affordable price to accommodate the lack of quality time the modern day family faces. We call ourselves a Meal Market. Think of a grocery store where you pick up your goods already washed, chopped and prepared and cooked into a delicious meal. All you have to do is heat and eat! The bonus we add is all this is done by a local chef. Our meals are sold in portions of 2 servings to accommodate the size of your household or appetite. The selections change on a daily basis depending upon seasonality of product and consumer requests/demands. Since we are a market and not a restaurant - we will not have a set menu. We will offer our daily selections on this website and on our social media pages.
Run by 2 homegrown local Oconee natives. Our Chef is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu 2005. She has had experience working at 5&10 for her internship, working with large grocery chains, a local retail sandwich shop, and was the Sous Chef in the kitchen for Epting Events. She has worked as an in-house private chef with UGA's sorority market, in addition to private catering for 13 years. The 2 bring over 20+ years of business management experience as well as partnering in past ventures.
We Hope You Enjoy The Picnic Basket!
