It’s the first official day of summer but picnic season in Maine is already in full swing. The secret to a perfect, easy picnic is a one-stop shop where you can pick up everything you need on your way to the park or beach. For me, that’s Rosemont Market in Cape Elizabeth, my go-to for cheese, fresh produce, spreads, freshly baked bread, and, of course, beverages. See why Rosemont checks all the boxes for me.

One of our favorite spots for a picnic is at Fort Williams. Not only do they have endless gorgeous spots for a picnic, but they also have playgrounds, a children’s garden, an amazing cliff walk and of course, the lighthouse. Not only did I spend countless hours here as a child with my own family, but it’s also become one of our own go-to places.

Oh, and I almost forgot. A picnic isn’t complete unless you top it off with a trip for some ice cream at Kettle Cove Ice Cream Shack 🙂
