Summertime treats & Picknicking tricks (where and what to eat)
Want the picnic brought to you? Call Spread Delivers
Best known for her corporate breakfasts and lunches, delivered via bike courier, Julie Harrison of Spread Delivers has parlayed her expertise into a thriving “picnic boutique.” Hers is a travelling canteen, with a team from 2 Wheels Ahead Courier showing up at parks around town to drop off her gourmet picnic lunches between May and September. Julie's picnic advice is to keep it not too messy and not too fussy. Picnics should be simple and easy to eat. Her clientele includes stroller moms and romantic dates. All you have to do is place an order by 5 p.m. the day before, then wait at your designated picnic spot for lunch to show up.
Harrison's top picnic spots:
"Our top three delivery spots are Lansdowne Park, the waterfront at the Canadian Museum of History, and the Museum of Nature. Dows Lake (shown above) is pretty popular, and we get quite a few calls for Major’s Hill and Vincent Massey parks."
