Faster than you can say "fruit cup."

The sous chef doesn’t speak much, but sure knows how to slice and dice.

You get a week’s worth of Vitamin A for only four bucks. Mango, orange, watermelon, jicama, cucumber, cantaloupe, and pineapple fill up a bag that you can shower with lemon juice, chili powder, and/or salt. For five bucks you get even more.

The stand is operated every weekday and only serves raw fruit, so plenty customers stop by in yarmulkes looking for a healthy burst of sugar. May not work with the South Beach Diet, but what do I know.

Oh yeah, and the fruit is delicious. Crunchy; juicy still.
