Our local juice old man is just one of thousands in the city, but, as many locals will tell you, one becomes very attached to one’s own local stalls and stores.
We come and love and stay.
Not about the juice anymore,
There’s a regular flow of customers throughout the day: local merchants, other food vendors taking a break, and just passersby with a thirst. The old man deals with hundreds of orders each day, keeping everything running almost entirely by himself. He has a separate sugar cane press of the type you see all over the city, along with a single juicer, blender, press, and press. It's an easy, compact setup.
