The first Square Tomatoes Crafts Fair will take place Sunday, Aug. 12, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., near the Davis Food Co-op, 620 G St.
Locals can check out fine artists’ and artisans’ wares for sale under a shaded canopy with free ice water, shade, comfy chairs and a live band. Food will be sold at a Monticello Cuisine booth.
Sally Parker, who is running Square Tomatoes, is basing the event on the model of an old-fashioned farmers market, meaning artisans take their products directly to customers and avoid the cost of a middleman so that both artisans and visitors get a bargain.
