New restaurant opens at Nampa Airport

May 10, 2013 

The Picnic Basket Eatery opened at the Nampa Airport terminal Wednesday and is open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.

The airport’s previous restaurant, Blue Sky Cafe, moved to a new location on Nampa’s Greenhurst Road at the end of February. The airport sent out a request for proposals for a new restaurant operator, and a committee selected the Picnic Basket.

The Picnic Basket Eatery, owned and managed by Traci Docherty, had previously been located on 2nd Street South downtown.

The restaurant serves breakfasts, burgers, salads and desserts. It also offers delivery service, Docherty said. For more information call 467-9633 or go to to check out the menu.
