Best When Cutting the Cheese on a First Date Is OK

Austin Farmers' Market Downtown

First dates are hard. You're trying to impress, but you're also working out that new hottie's likes and dislikes. So why not come off all clean-living and healthy-eating, and find out whether they're more inclined to nibble salad or scarf a steak all at the same time? Suggest a jaunt down to the Saturday Farmers' Market, and find out how he or she (or…?) likes their locally and independently produced fresh fruit, seasonal honey, organic meat, hand-picked veggies, and homemade bread. You could even pick up some fresh-cut flowers, if things are going that way. Plus, even if the date turns out to be a bust, at least you've got your groceries.
