Right near our street, outside the medieval wall, there is an agricultural fair (photo above) smack in the middle of the dried-up ancient castle moat. I strolled around the other night to take pictures of souvlaki, linens, handicrafts, shoes, honey, raki, and spinach pies.
Fabulous Greek pastry: it’s everywhere!

Not just another painted rock…
Cretans make wonderful silk products. And they turn the cocoons into jewelry, too.
Corn was served: boiled, roasted, and even popped.
For sale: One woman’s passion. Dressing dolls in the native costumes of different Grecian towns. Note mustaches on the boys in back!
One tented area was all souvlaki, all the time.
These are loukoumades, like doughnut holes but soaked in honey and topped with sesame seeds. And if you like, chocolate sauce.
This is how you make loukoumades, with grandsons ready to eat up the profits.
Greece is where God invented sandals. And they are amazing.
At the end of the shopping tour, I found Tom among the locals with one more souvlaki and of course, a draft.
