I don't know how many thousands of these fresh produce carts I have seen around Jeddah. They peddle their wares in the hot sun at cheaper prices than one must pay in the air conditioned supermarkets here. All of these vendors are from other poorer countries in the region. They come to Saudi Arabia to try to work, wiring much of what they earn back to their families back home. Most of these foreign laborers live in deplorable conditions, yet they always have a pleasant smile ready.
