Glenn Lindgren: Don't be alarmed if you stop at a traffic light and someone lumbers up to your car window carrying something vaguely suspicious looking in there hands.

Jorge Castillo: You should add that you shouldn't be alarmed if this happened to you during the day.

Raúl Musibay: If it happens at night, get the heck out of there!

Raúl Musibay: The street corner vendor. Well, maybe the median vendor would be more precise.

Glenn Lindgren: These men and women stand patiently at the street corners waiting for the light to turn red.

Jorge Castillo: Once everyone stops, they have an "instant store."

Glenn Lindgren: If you see someone approaching your car - during the day, when there are other cars around - roll down the window and see what they have.

Jorge Castillo: Otherwise, you'll miss out on one of Miami's best bargains.

Mango man

Raúl Musibay: Yes, and all of the customers are just lined up waiting to buy.

Jorge Castillo: Everything is packaged to sell for a dollar or two. You might get four good-sized mangoes, a dozen oranges, six tomatoes and as many as 20 lemons or limes.

Raúl Musibay: Are you feeling adventurous? Try the mamoncillos - it's a Cuban favorite. You bite through the hard skin of this fruit and suck out the pulp. It's very tart and juicy.

Jorge Castillo: We've seen many things for sale, churros (pastry), toys and crafts, newspapers of course.

Glenn Lindgren: Don't forget flowers! Where else can you get 20 roses for just five bucks?

Sometimes you need to leave the car to get a good bargain. This guy usually sets up shop near the airport. The mangoes, out of season, sold for 75 cents a piece.
