The Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair returns to Central Park on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., featuring more than 30 vendors and food booths. During November and December, the fair will be held twice a month on the first and third Sundays of the month.
“We are proud to promote creativity in Davis,” said Lead Tomato Sally Parker, “and we’re pleased to offer vendors and visitors a direct market.” A direct market means both vendors and shoppers avoid middleman costs, so vendors can pass on savings to their customers.
The fair welcomes new vendors Kinsey Carlson, Brie Hardy of Prismatic Design and Thanya Holland of Origami Owl. Carlson is a UC Davis freshman in design and sociology. She has created a classical and elegant version of the headband with silk flowers and roses, some in autumnal colors.
Food vendors include Gloria Partida’s Mexican chocolate sold at the Purros Churros stand. Jamie Lund will supervise a table where visitors of all ages can make paper baskets.
The New Harmony Jazz Band will debut Sunday, playing from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Third Street entrance to Central Park. Davis Swing Dancers plan to dance, and they encourage fair visitors to join in. From 1:30 to 4 p.m., Ken Kemmerling and Ephraim George will play jazz on the piano and clarinet.
