4756 Buying produce at the open air market

The shoppers are buying produce under the watchful eye of the collie policeman. A customer and a vendor are having a serious disagreement over something and are making threats with carrots and onions. While everyone is distracted the kitten is making the most of the opportunity to steal an apple. By the kind of dress she is wearing that is presumably a maid holding the leash to the dog. I think the dog is probably a terrier of some kind (Airedale?). The colors and features of dogs have changed a lot over the years, so it is hard to say.
