Yes, French women do go about with small dogs in carry bags...
An overview of the market, which is held in the gymnasium.
Dried fruit, including poires tapées ('tapped pears'), a delicacy only made in the Touraine.
Rosemary talking to one of the vendors about saffron tea syrup. Lots of the stalls, like this one had small inexpensive items which would make great gifts.
A spice vendor measuring out some lightly smoked sweet paprika for me.all I know about saffron, sadly died last month and there was a brief tribute to him at lunchtime. The tribute he would really want though is the continuing success of this fair for many years to come.
UPDATE: You can read Rosemary's account of the fair on her blog Aussie in France here.
