Farmersâ?? Market Anniversary Celebration
Is there any finer tomato
Than the one the local farmer made grow?
Veggies and soaps and honey so sweet
Sold to you out on the street.
To mark these years that number 30,
This market wants everyone down and dirty.

(9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at the Winter Park Farmers Market; free; 407-599-3334)

Thatâ??s definitely enough to do me in.
(5 p.m.-7 p.m. Friday, 3 p.m.-9 p.m. Saturday, 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Sunday at Lakeside Inn, 100 N. Alexander St., Mount Dora; $18-$48; 866-942-8138)

We hope this isnâ??t your brother weâ??ve come to see.
Point out your baldness and lifeâ??s little foibles
Then play with some oversized version of toys.
We all came to get wet and covered in goop.
And if comedy has progressed in the last 20 years, weâ??ve been out of the loop.(8 p.m. Friday at the
