The Perfect Fall Picnic

Fall is arguably the best season to comfortably enjoy the scenic outdoors and rich beauty of mother nature as she takes one last bow before the curtain closes for another year. We invite mild temperatures and seek extra warmth from layers of flavours and fashions, making it the season for bold expression and vivid memories. Below, we have curated The Perfect Fall Picnic ingredients from some of our local shops in the heart of historic Galt, downtown Cambridge.

Galt Picnic Fall


Millrace Park (36 Water Street N) is the perfect location for a mid-day picnic along the Grand River in the European-esque town formally known as Galt, now better known as Downtown Cambridge. The park prominently features the remains of an 1847 mill and has become a destination for engagement and wedding photography.

Sweet Treats

Downtown Cambridge has a selection of wonderful bakeshops that can offer the perfect decadent treat for your picnic. Today, we selected Tiny Cakes (65 Dickson St) for their Macarons - a burst of colour for any plate setting; these delicious delicacies come in various flavours and are delicious!

Lunch To Go

You may not think of takeout when treating yourself to a nice meal but rest assured, EVO Kitchen is a restaurant and catering business with years of experience catering (pun intended) Lunch To Go! With a variety of delicious wraps, sandwiches, salads and more - they offer everything for the perfect picnic meal. 

Bevy Options

If you want to elevate the experience with a sparkling bevy, the Old Galt Bottle Shop (135 George St N) has an assortment of non-alcoholic beverages that can be enjoyed in our parks. From Dry Secco to Bellini-inspired beverages, you will find the perfect pairing for your picnic at the Old Galt Bottle Shop. 

An Extra Special Touch

Elevate your picnic with fall-inspired flowers from the Cambridge School of Flowers (1 Water St N). From flower crowns that will adorn you with festive flair to market bouquets that can provide the perfect centrepiece and be gifted later. 

Witty & Co. (20 Ainslie St N) is a home goods company focusing on you and living your best life! With stylish home accessories and cheeky gifts and cards, if you are celebrating a special occasion during your picnic, pop in and find that special extra thing to make it simply perfect.

If you want to take home a memory from your special day, gift a piece or two of locally crafted serving dishes from Hilborn Pottery (59 Park Hill Rd E) to plate your meal at your picnic. Stylish and functional, the Hilborns have been in business since 1975, and their signature designs are widely popular and a wonderful reminder of your time with us.
