In the charming summer weather, the time is ripe for adventures into nature. Perfect Picnic in the center of Provincetown, is an ambitious and unique new business fully committed to crafting just what its name suggests: the perfect picnic. High-quality meats, cheeses, wines, olives, and more line the shelves at this one-stop shop for the adventurous and fun-loving foodies of Cape Cod. Whether you’re just dropping in to browse, stopping by for a tiny baguettini, or looking for professional assistance planning the picnic of your dreams, Perfect Picnic should be an attraction of significant interest.

Mark Mitchell, a former competitive skating coach, founded the store just this spring, inspired by New York City’s Perfect Picnic—the brainchild of his long-time friend, Wendy Weston. The goal of Perfect Picnic is simple: to make this European-style practice of elevated picnicking accessible to American consumers. And with Mitchell’s new branch, this vision is being brought to the perhaps ideal marketplace of Provincetown.

The art of the picnic is something of a throwback, Mitchell says. Perhaps there is something appealing in its freeing and bohemian spirit, something that caters to our inner desire to reject the confines of modernity. Particularly in a post-pandemic society that has left many disillusioned with technology, reclusivity, and isolation, the picnic may be seeing a comeback.

With the help of Perfect Picnic Provincetown, you too can live out your romantic outdoor fantasy, full of good food and good fun. It can even be as easy as choosing one of their pre-designed picnic baskets so you don’t have to think twice about your outing’s refreshments.

Now is as good a time as ever to hop on this trend and plan a picnic!
