They’re the indelible mark of summer, the thumbprint of the season and no two are ever alike: picnics!

What better way to take in the beauty of the Berkshires than sharing delicious food in the great outdoors in the company of friends and family? As veteran picnic lovers, we’re dedicated to making sure you’re well-equipped for the ultimate al fresco experience, from simple park-bench lunch for two to elaborate Tanglewood dinners on the lawn. We are the picnic packer’s DREAM come true!

Tucked along Route 7 in Pittsfield and Great Barrington, Guido’s two convenient locations are ready when you are for assembling a portable feast. It’s a cinch to stop by on your way to and from the Berkshires’ cultural attractions and lodgings, many of which are only a stone’s throw from Route 7. When you need provisions, but long to be outside in the sunshine, make the most of your time in the Berkshires’ greenery with a mouth-watering selection of all picnic fare imaginable, from watermelon to wine. If your taste runs to the traditional, we fit the bill with summer comfort foods to-go. Looking for something unexpected in your picnic basket? We’re busy preparing the best inspired cuisine to fill your coolers and tote bags with imaginative food so you can make haste for the hills. To guarantee you love every moment of picnicking, we’re well-stocked with all the necessaries, including sunscreen, bug repellent, cork screws, candles, ice and the usual suspects like plates, glasses, cutlery, napkins and everything else you’ll need for a successful picnic.

Dan Shaw in Rural Intelligence has said, “As Tanglewood is to music, Guido’s Fresh Marketplace is to groceries.” Our strength is in our food; while you’re planning memory-making al fresco celebrations in the summery Berkshires, depend on Guido’s to be the finest local source for your glorious picnics!
