Saint Andrew is said to have been a Galilean fisherman so it seems very apt for a fair and market in his name to be held close to Lake Annecy in the Haute-Savoie region of the French Alps each year. The Foire de la Saint-André (“Fair of Saint Andrew”) takes place in Annecy on the first Tuesday in December and hundreds of traders gather to sell their products of all kinds.
