No matter where you spread out (and chow down), picnic in style with items from these local shops. All you need are the snacks.
Retro Sounds radio
Aldea Home’s compact, colorful radio ($25.50) includes an AM/FM tuner and a plug for your smartphone—so everyone in the park can enjoy your favorite summer hits.
The material in this lightweight picnic blanket ($40) from Alite Designs is 100 percent waterproof (take that, damp grass). Each mat, available in several bright patterns, packs into a small roll for easy hill-schlepping.
Hydro Flask growler
This high-tech growler ($64.95) keeps every sip of your IPA as carbonated and cold as when it was first poured for up to 24 hours. Plus you don’t have to worry about spills or recycling your bottles.
Goorin Bros. God Father straw fedora
Take cover from summer’s rays in this straw fedora ($120). The hat—from a fourth-generation, family-run biz—also comes in handy on bad hair days.
Made in the USA, this sturdy, rolltop duffle bag ($265) puts many a flimsy picnic basket to shame. It’s weatherproof, expandable (more kimchi potato salad, please) and bike-friendly.
Heath Ceramics + Skinny laMinx napkins
These durable cloth napkins ($25 for two) are designed by Heather Moore of Skinny laMinx with cheery Heath Ceramics–inspired patterns to pay homage to the local company’s iconic tile shapes.
