You can buy almost anything from your door step here. The vendors load carts with their wares and push it around the neighborhood, yelling out whatever it is they are selling.
The few regulars in our area are : Vegetables, seafood, brooms, plants, earth, flowerpots, eggs, snacks, full meals. I think thats about it.
Apart from eggs, I only occasionally buy from these door-to-door vendors. It is always pricier and not as fresh. As for the snacks and meals.....its just too scary to think of the bacteria festering there.
Eggs are the exception because it is harder to buy fresh free range eggs from the markets. So, I have a regular lady that stops by the house once or twice a week.
The problem with her is that she doesn't have a regular schedule and sometimes, we run out of eggs and I go out and just buy the normal type. Inevitably, she'll show up the next day (or later the same day). She's a very wrinkled old lady that hobbles up to the house with bowed legs. I always end up buying some from her just to lighten her load.
So the story today is that we went to mass in the morning and afterwards, there happened to be a boy selling eggs outside. I got two packs, each with 10 eggs. Within 30 mins of arriving home, the wrinkly old lady arrives with two buckets of eggs. I bought 10 from her for USD 0.85 and now, I have 30 eggs in my fridge. They're only about half the size of normal eggs so its not as much as it sounds, but still....
