Where to grab your picnic essentials
Now that you’re convinced a picnic should be in your future, let’s chat about the food. It is, after all, one of the most important components of such a venture. Blue Ridge is rich with options, and here are a few ideas we know you’ll love.
Located in Downtown Blue Ridge, Bob's offers a number of sandwiches and sides, fresh squeezed frozen lemonade and organic cold-pressed juice. Be sure to grab one of their specialty shakes! Who says you can't eat dessert first?
JAMY'S SANDWICH SHOP BLUE RIDGE
Jamy's offers a great selection of sandwiches like BLT's, Tuna Salad, Cajun Sub, Italian Sub's and more. You can also pick up one of their salads, to name a couple, Apple Orchard, loaded with apples, cranberries, raisins and pecans or The Strawberry Fields with strawberries, cranberries, pecans, raisins and blue cheese crumbles.
TASTE OF AMISH & GENERAL STORE
Head to the deli for an assortment of sandwiches and wraps, then pick up your sides within the general store. Specialty sandwiches here include Kettle Chicken Quesadillas, Hot Buttered Roast Beef Sandwiches and more.
THE PASTA MARKET
I know what you’re thinking; home-made pasta is delicious but you can’t bring a packet on a picnic. The Blue Ridge Cafe (inside the market) offers far more than dried noodles. Find pre-packaged salads, charcuterie boards, flatbreads, and an assortment of perfect picnic appetizers.
The Cafe at 32 Toccoa
On your way to the Ocoee Whitewater Center, stop by and pick up some fresh made deli sandwiches. In case you want to do a morning picnic and walk, they also have great coffees, smoothies and exceptional pastries!
