Following two years anchored around local Farmers Markets, this year we will have a full time presence with our trailer at the revitalized Corbin’s Corner in North Glenmore,” says Kelsey Galt of Basket Case Picnics. “Here we will be serving our tantalizing and ever evolving fresh sheet of a la carte specialties featuring the freshest seasonal bounty. Plans are also in the works for a series of Glenmore Gatherings on-site as special events on summer evenings, with live music and Okanagan food and beverage.” 

Basket Case Picnics are sustainability-focused caterers who embrace the Slow Food movement and work in close partnership with a wide range of local growers, farmers, ranchers and producers. Their highly recognizable trailer can be found serving up fresh Okanagan fare at a wide variety of events, attractions and especially working in partnership with picnic-licensed wineries. Basket Case Picnics also offers full service catering for weddings and private and corporate functions.

“Our food offers fresh twists on rustic, old-fashioned favourites,” says Kelsey.  “It’s good, clean, fair food, carefully tended from farm to fork, and presented with flare.”

One of Basket Case Picnics’ unique offerings is its selection of gourmet four-course picnics for two or more. “They’re carefully and creatively designed to fuel your enjoyment of the region and take any day of Okanagan activities over the top!” enthuses Kelsey. 

All food is packaged in compostable containers in re-usable eco-friendly coolers with biodegradable garbage bags included to take care of the environment while dining al fresco.

Kelsey and her team are thrilled to be the “Preferred Food Suppliers” to the Okanagan Diner en Blanc July 4 and the Summer Theatre Festival in downtown Kelowna July 18 through August 13.  

The new Basket Case Picnics website will be launched in June with on-line ordering. 

“Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for the latest special event updates and daily a la carte throw downs,” invites Kelsey.
