ASK AMANDA } Where To Stock A Picnic


The gourmet goods at Alexandria's Society Fair make for an excellent picnic.

Q:

We are having a picnic at a winery to celebrate a friend’s birthday. I am thinking of bringing a charcuterie board with olives and cornichon. Where is a good place to buy charcuterie? I am in Falls Church VA – someplace close to me is good, but I’m willing to travel to DC as needed.

Amanda says:
I highly recommend checking out Society Fair in Alexandria. You'll find everything you need for a great locavore picnic and more. The butcher case there is stocked with top-notch meats and pates.

Also, Screwtop Wine Bar in Arlington has a nice selection of cheese and meats for retail. If you come into DC, check out AM Wine Shoppe in Adams Morgan, Cork Market on 14th Street and Cowgirl Creamery in Penn Quarter.

For some style inspiration for your picnic, take a peek at my Pinterest picnic board.

If he/she wants to stick closer to home, I really like Red White and Bleu in Falls Church for meat and cheese!

Thanks, Missy! I'll have to check it out when I'm out that way too.
