La Guagüita Anunciadora/ The Announcing Truck Vendors
La Guagüita Anunciadora Street Vendors carry a small supermarket in the back of a truck or cart. They usually have a loudspeaker, some are very very loud. They have these speakers on their trucks where they can announce what they have for sale and the prices. Others just have a very loud voice and they yell out what wares they are selling.
These supermarkets on wheels pass through the streets selling their wares to the families living in the area as they ride up and down the streets. They can sell anything from fresh fish and chickens to soap, eggs, oranges, all types of fruits and vegetables, and whatever else they happen to have that they think you would want to purchase. This is very convenient for many as so many people do not have vehicles or supermarkets close by.
These vendors sure do make themselves known as they pass by in their beat-up trucks or pushing carts laden with products. The loudness of their announcements can be very annoying at times. Some play music in between their yelling, which is not easy to decipher because of the usually low quality of the speakers. They do make themselves known by the noise they make.
