VT road trip provisions

Hello all,

My husband and I are getting ready to take a weekend road trip up into Vermont -- will be staying in Montpelier and exploring the larger region while there.

I'd like to make plans to stop someplace on the way up to Montpelier, to pick up a few delicious somethings to take with us to a park of some kind for a picnic. Fine dining at Hen of the Wood later that day, so a chance to enjoy some natural beauty over lunch is our goal.

Not knowing the area but having some googling skills, I thought a possible combination would be something like pastries and made to order sandwiches at the Woodstock Farmer's Market store -- then a drive over to Quechee State Park for our picnic setting. Would this be a good choice?

Any other ideas you might have? Our route will be I-91 north from Brattleboro but then we'll want to get off of the interstate and take something like Rte. 12/12A or Rte. 100 north at a leisurely pace. So -- any suggestions say between Chester or Londonderry up to Northfield or Warren (looking at a wide rural swath west of the interstate) would work for us. And if you know of a great picnic spot near great food, all the better! Thanks!
