So much to do this week! The winter Lane County Farmers Market is open, so you can once again shop for fresh and hyperlocal produce — now in the new Farmers Market Pavilion. It’s the week for First Friday Art Walk, with a new show at Karin Clarke Gallery. If you enjoy Irish and folk music, check out the O’Sullivans at the Eugene Garden Club (a place we don’t usually get to list as a venue!). “Legally Blonde” is still great fun (at the Hult Center). Cottage Theatre goes for laughs and heart with a play based on “Peanuts.” There’s also the St. Olaf Choir (Wildish Theater) and The Rodgers & Hart Songbook (The Shedd) and that’s just the start!
