Fruit Vendor

New Orleans only door-to-door produce vendor, "Okra," is an important part of the fabric of several neighborhoods. We take a ride along in his truck.

Okra's truck *before* it got a new paint job from Dr. Bob

The selectrion varies day to day, but he carries most staples: corn, potatoes, garlic, apples, oranges and bananas.

A simple Radio Shack bullhorn brings Okra's call to the neighborhood.
