St. Casimir's Stuff At His Fair

The St Casimir's fair seems to have been taken over a bit by an international crafts cartel of cheap jewelry and questionable pottery. Still, local food was available and a few true handicrafts were sold.

Many gira men, selling the non-alcoholic fermented rye bread drink.

Traditional sweets and bread.

Bring on the pickling!

Another popular pairing: charcuterie and farmer's cheese.

A huge seller, smoked fish.

Homemade horseradish.

Attractions on a stick, edible and dried. The flowers are traditional to the fair and known as "Verbos." Related to St Casimir, they're a symbol of Spring and taken to church on Palm Sunday.

Lovely licorice.

Felting is big in Lithuania, both big and small.

Rusty tools? Edible chocolate!
