El Verdulero

If you listen you can hear them coming as they make their way along the bumpy road. They blast the day’s catch of fruit and vegetables through a loudspeaker.

We bought our fruit and veggies out of the back of a red truck. They almost passed us by but my yells stopped them in their tracks.

If you listen you can hear them.

    I can rarely understand the loudspeaker patter because of all the static, but it surely gets your attention if you are waiting for a certain seller. My Spanish is limited which doesn’t help either. I am out in the country now and so I don’t hear it, but I remember it well from Buenos Aires and from Ajijic, MX.

      I can’t either 🥴 but I hear enough to distinguish between the verdulero, el panadero, el chatarrero, y el dulcero.
