RE: Fruit on the street
Thanks for the comment. In Baltimore I think the fruit vendors were called "Arabers" . Every year at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, they have a few who sell watermelon and also citrus fruit (organge? lemon?) with a peppermint stick to suck out the juices.
In NYC however, these fruit carts do not sell fruit salads or juices or smoothies. They are basically just frech whole fruits (mangoes, berries, melons, apples, oranges, apricots, etc.) same as in the grocery store. The vendor stands next to the piles of fruit and sells it by the pound.
