Filling my picnic basket in Newport, RI

jshaper | May 26, 2011 07:03 AM

My wife and I are coming down to Newport for our aniversary and would like to go for a picnic in Newport to relax drink wine and maybe fly a kite. We are staying at a B&B on Phelham right near Thames. I know there are a ton of restaurants but would like to pickup something (premade or make ourselves) to eat on the way to picnicing.

I know I want to stop at either the Mad Hatter or newport choclate for dessert and I know that there is a Stop n Shop near the Chocolate by Freebody park as a last resort we can pick up bread sandwich meats and some fruit.

Is there a place that will pack to go and be perfect for a picnic? Is it near a place to setup our blanket?

Thanks for all your assistance.
