Thank you for supporting CUESA’s Summer Picnic:
The City’s Freshest Party in a Basket

Celebrate the start of summer with a delicious farm-fresh picnic from the Bay Area’s hottest restaurants, bars, wineries, and breweries. CUESA is putting together the perfect peak-season goodie basket to help you transform your afternoon into an instant outdoor party. Raise a glass and join us in supporting local farms and healthy communities!

  • Each picnic basket includes everything you need for an extravagant summer lunch for one, with 7 impeccably crafted bites and 5 seasonal beverages.
  • Choose from 3 different summer produce themes (Berries, Stone Fruit, or Cucurbits) representing the best of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.
  • Having a picnic party? Unlock discounted pricing per picnic basket when you purchase multiple baskets!
  • Packed in your basket are sweet and savory goodies, refreshing drinks, games, and surprises. Just choose your favorite park, invite your pod, and get ready to party!
  • Pick up your picnic from the Ferry Building or have it delivered to your door on Sunday, June 13.

Picking up at the Ferry Building? Stay and picnic on the plaza with us! The Ferry Building will host outdoor tables, and our friends at BFF.fm will be spinning some fresh summer tunes from 11 am - 1pm. Tables will be first come, first served.

A Party with a Mission

Proceeds provide vital funds for CUESA’s farmers markets, which serve thousands of Bay Area residents and more than 140 local farms and small food businesses, and education programs like Foodwise Kids and Foodwise Teens, which empower the next generation of healthy eaters.

This event also supports our treasured restaurant community, and a portion of your ticket price will underwrite food and labor costs for each participating restaurant.

The fair market value of a single picnic basket is $50. Anything paid above this value is a tax-deductible donation to CUESA.
