There’s lots going on this weekend. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the options, but you’re going to have to get used to it. This is just the beginning of the madness that is Charleston’s fun-filled spring/summer season. Here are our picks for the best events this weekend:

Farmers Market opening. Winter might not be so bad if we had the farmers market to help us through those cold months. But alas, everyone’s favorite Saturday morning pastime closes up shop for a few months when we need it most. But it’s back starting this Saturday, with all the crepes, fresh pasta, local produce, gorgeous photography, and everything else that we love.

RiverDogs games. If you missed Thursday’s opening game (which may have been a smart move considering the insane lines) there are games Friday-Sunday, and next week as well. Go get your baseball on.

Yellow vs. Blue. Opening Friday and on view through April, Robert Lange Studios hosts a show featuring 20 local and national artists’ works. Each artist submitted two paintings, one yellow and one blue. We’ve seen a few of the entries, and they’re beautiful.

Family Circle Cup
. This all-women, all-star tennis tournament kicks off Saturday with the pre-qualifying rounds. Tickets for these matches are just $10 — the cheapest all week. You won’t see Serena, but you will no doubt see some high-quality tennis action.

We Are Family Hoe-Down. On Saturday join We Are Family, a nonprofit organization that provides resources for the Lowcountry GLBT youth, for their first annual hoe-down at the Chart. Wear a cowboy or cowgirl costume and learn to Texas Two-Step with private instructors.
