- Big Apple Deli: Located in Oregon, the only Sunday it is ever open is Super Bowl Sunday. With that reputation you almost have to try them. Order ahead, however, as they will be swamped.
- Monnettes (Reynolds) and Monnettes (Secor): Obviously they are a produce market. However, they have an excellent deli section which is perfect for the build your own tray set. Of course, you can also put out a vegetable tray and hope for the best. Either way they have you covered.

- Harvest Market Place: This hidden gem has a bit of everything. Sandwiches, takeout, deli salads and one of the best selection of craft beers around. Call ahead because they do cater.
- Sidelines: Although they do trays and take out, Sidelines is an excellent choice if you are flying solo or in a small group. Forget about the parties and the clean up afterwards, with multiple locations Sidelines has you covered for the Super Bowl, or really any sporting event.
- Gino’s Pizza: About as local as it comes, Gino’s Pizza has been around a long time. With several locations, there is no reason to order from the national chains.
- House of Meats: One of the definitive meat markets in the region. HOM has a small deli but it is easy to stock up on ribs, chicken wings, hamburger, dogs, brats, really anything that might skew tailgate.
