More than 40 vendors, guest performers and crafts tables for visitors will be featured at the Square Tomatoes Craft Fair from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday in Central Park, Fourth and C streets.

New vendors include Stephen Schuchman, a globe-trotting gemstone miner and lapidary artist. A mine owner, he has personally extracted 120 tons of agate. He exhibits his polished gemstones in Tucson, Denver, Munich and Moscow.

New vendor Nanette Jordan designs and casts silver miniatures, including several types of chairs, shoes, keys and a bird’s egg charm. Brenda Soi of the Berkeley Potters’ Guild makes functional and decorative pottery and silver jewelry.

“I’m so pleased at all of the new vendors,” said “lead tomato” Sally Parker. “You can talk to a gemstone miner, compare notes with an original silver charm designer, eat gluten-free desserts, and try your hand at making the paper airplane that broke the world’s record for distance.”

Dr. D, a former professor at UC Davis, will tell his own stories. Jada Gilbert and students from Studio 301, a UCD theater club, will perform songs from the upcoming production of “Bat Boy: The Musical.”

New to this fair are Square Tomatoes art posters that visitors can take home for the cost of printing the poster. This month’s poster features two toads riding a bicycle while carrying a square tomato.

Fair visitors of all ages can make origami with Eva Dopico or fold paper airplanes with Monica Riche. Parker and Riche surfed the Internet for top-performing paper airplanes.

“I found that folding an airplane is easy, but perfecting a supposedly simple design is not,” Riche said. “We’ll show anyone how to fold a plane and correct it for a few flaws. We’re looking for athletes with a good pitching arm, experimenters and engineers to compete at the paper table.”

The Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair comes to Central Park on the second Sunday of each month, except May, when the event takes place on May 5.
