Pavement Pounders (Part 5)

Do you need to go to the market to buy vegetables and fruit? Yes, but it's not really necessary because there are heaps of ladies and men selling on the street. The price is cheaper on the street sometimes but you have to bargain harder.

Sometimes it's better to know these people, so that they give you good quality produce or you might get below average stuff, which has insects or is going off. These people usually wake up at about 3 am, go to the early morning market to buy from the wholesaler, return home and start selling on the street at about 5 am till 6 pm. They usually sell two kinds of vegie or fruit, one which has a higher profit margin, and therefore pays more for their long hours of pounding!
