It's street-festival season, and one of the best block parties is Saturday. The ninth-annual Troost Festival is from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday. The party at the intersection of 31st Street and Troost is a mix of performances, live music and plenty of food. Snack on falafel from the Jerusalem Cafe or grab a slice of pizza from Judge's Pizza Truck.

The Northland's version of Restaurant Week is happening right now. Zona Rosa Eat Week runs through this Sunday with dining-in and to-go specials at locations throughout the shopping complex. Bravo has a three-course dinner for $19.95 (Caesar salad, lobster ravioli and tiramisu is one way to go), and Swagat has an all-you-can eat lunch buffet for $10 (soda included).

The 1980s are back and they're ready to party. The third-annual Vintage Prom, a benefit for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, is Saturday from 8 p.m. to midnight, at the Roasterie's Bean Hangar event space (1204 W. 27th St.). Tickets cost $40, and, yes, it's all-you-can-drink. VIP tickets ($60 apiece) include a rum-punch drink, food, $3 Boulevard Wheat and Pale Ale, and $5 house wine from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kill Devil Club, along with complimentary rides between the Power & Light District and the Roasterie.

The Brookside Farmers Market at 63rd Street and Wornall (in the parking lot of Border Star Montessori) kicks off this weekend. It's from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Grab a breakfast burrito and shop the transplants and leafy greens.

Whole Foods Market (7401 W. 91st St.) is giving away free organic compost at 10 a.m. Saturday. The compost is from Missouri Organics.
