Photos of Egypt: The Roadside Produce Stand in Cairo

I always know which fruits and veggies are in season by watching the roadside stands in Cairo.

If you see donkey carts laden with guavas (like this one) lining the streets of Cairo, then you know that this is the best time to buy guavas - or whatever kind of fruit or vegetable you see.

I don't usually buy my produce from a stand like this. But you'll find carts like this all over Cairo, particularly in some of the more Egyptian areas.

In our part of town, carts like these drive up and down the streets with the driver yelling the name out for everyone to hear him. They sell all kinds of things like this in Egypt.

It's kind of like the Egyptian equivalent of our ice cream truck in the States.
