Cheap dates for cheapies like me

Getting married has caused us to seriously cut back on spending money, not to mention preparing for the future as we merge our two sources of income! Here are a few cheap dates that involve food... what could be better?

Pick Your Own (http://www.pickyourown.org)
Ever wished you could live the life of farmers without having to birth calves or get up at the butt crack of dawn? You can visit several sites in your home state with your honey and pick your own food, like apples, watermelons, pears...anything? Check out pickyourown.org to find local farms, and make a romantic date out of picking food and having a picnic!

Farmers Markets
Treat your senses to a stroll through an outdoor market. Not only are they fun places to people-watch, you and your date can fill up on free samples of farm-fresh produce, locally made cheese, and fresh baked goods. Log on to
www.ams.usda.gov and click on “Farmers Markets.”

Food festivals
There’s no better way to show your civic pride than stuffing yourself with weird and wonderful regional specialties. If you’re new to your area, it’s a great way to get familiar with local culture; if you’re both natives, you’ll have a great time daring each other to try garlic ice cream or fried pickles. Search for a food festival near you at www.foodreference.com.
