Garcia said operators will band together and purchase produce as a group and distribute to five to six different operations.

Paul Manfre, buyer for Top Katz Brokers LLC, likes the idea.

“When you’re selling on the street, people will eat it immediately,” he said. “If it keeps people away from eating candy bars, potato chips or ice cream, it’s not a bad idea at all.”

Manfre 35 years ago entered the produce industry by selling produce from pushcarts on the streets of New York.
