A cart by the road side, a few fruits or vegetables and a whole day to sell them makes one a shopkeeper. They tout the freshness and how special the produce is by mentioning where its from. Absence of price tags means changing prices depending on the customer -- regulars get a break while novices and others are an opportunity to make a bigger profit :) But it is a hard life and as the poses of the vendors show they catch a nap or rest any which way they can.

Lots of tropical vegetables are now both grown or available here in the USA but as I mentioned before something about the tropical soil and weather, they definitely taste different (better!) in the tropics. I remember when growing up teasing my grandmother when sighed as to how vegetables from certain villages tasted better than others and it is ironic that now I have come to the same conclusion !
