Fair of Folk Art in Krakow.
Every summer in August the
Fair of Folk Art (Targi Sztuki Ludowej in Polish) takes
place in Krakow on
the Old Towns scenic Rynek Glowny central square. Its rows
of stalls tempt
spectators and potential buyers with their sundry and
colorful merchandise. Most of the goods may look antiquated
and often even exotically archaic though actually they are
brand-new products of the traditional village crafts and
arts: embroidery, pottery, painting, iron, metalwork,
The performing arts are
represented too, in the form of live gigs by acts
specializing in traditional village tunes and songs.
And last but not least the
Krakow Fair of Folk Art provides the opportunity to taste
the traditional village foods and stock up the fridge when
one enjoys them..
