Has anyone tried selling fresh fruit at things like softball tournaments? Or even things like fairs? Wondering if there might be a market for slabs of watermelon or even melons as an alternative to sodas and such. People often sell corn on the cob or candy or doughnuts but I've never seen fruit...thinking it might be good to try this year. Anyone have any thoughts or experiences?
Peace Corps, Republic du Niger, 1978=1981. At soccer games, carrots, eggplant, fresh roasted peanuts were being sold. I don't know why citrus, mangos, guavas, dates weren't being sold. They were available. More expensive though. In USA? I've never seen fruuit sold at events. When I was young. summer baseball games often ended with a pickup load of water melon driving onto the field, provided by the local Lions club or such group. Free or everybody.

Just saw a video of someone outside a venue getting all his money apparently legally stolen by a police officer because he didn't have a licence to sell homemade tacos. Not sure if he got arrested but the officer simply took his wallet and removed all his money. Apparently that's allowed if they think the money may have been made illegally, though I suspect that was intended for people selling drugs and stolen property rather than selling tacos outside a ball game without a license. It's getting harder and harder to get out from under the boot heel of government.
