Pop the Question with a Picnic!

With the leaves beginning to turn amazing red, orange, and yellow hues, autumn in the Hudson Valley is a great time of year for popping the big question.  And what better way to do it than with a picnic!

I can think of nothing more romantic than spending some time outdoors eating delicious food (but that's because I love food and I love the outdoors, so maybe I'm biased). Because the Hudson Valley is home to a wide variety of farms and orchards, packing the perfect picnic with local foods grown (or made) right here in our background is easy.

Here's just a small sampling of what you could pull together, most of which can be found at your local farmers markets (for a complete list of Hudson Valley markets, visit here):
