A mother with her children was visiting the fruit stall to buy a snack

There was a mobile food stall on wheels in the shade a little off the main street. Many food stalls were seen in both Jakarta and Cirebon. I guess it's because it's a business you can start even if you don't have much money.

While there were many stalls that carried gas cylinders with them and serve boiled and stir-fried food, the stall in this photo was a fruit stall. You don't need to be a good cook to do this, all you need is a good supply of fruit and you're in business. The fruit can be eaten as is or cut into pieces for easy consumption. This is probably one of the lowest hurdles in running a food stall. In this sense, fruit stalls seem to be the most popular, but in reality, they are not. It's just my personal impression, but it seems that there are more food stalls around town that serve food. I guess it's because the fruit is too common in tropical Indonesia to be profitable.

The stall in this photo was visited by a mother with her children. Both the young child strapped into her mother's arms and the girl standing next to the wagon had their eyes glued to the fruit on the stall. There was an aura of wanting to eat. Maybe it was time for a snack.
