Fiera del Tartufo di Alba, October 6 through November 18, 2012, every Saturday and Sunday
Truffle Fair 2012 (2)
Truffle Fair 2012 is starting off with few truffles and high prices due to lack of rain this spring and summer. We are hoping for better truffles in November and December after some much needed rain in September.Truffle Fair 2012 (1)
During the fair there are also many people selling high quality dried porcini mushrooms.Truffle Fair 2012
