2 Kids and a Fruit Stand in Livermore

Colton and Trinity are two enterprising children. They have made their own fruit stand.

It's on East Ave. right across the street from Livermore High school. They offer lemons and oranges and seasonally, numerous other types of fruit. The prices are very low and since it's done on an honor system it is open 24 hours a day.

They use the money earned to fund their college savings accounts. They are looking for people in Livermore with trees filled with fruit or avocados etc. that people don't have the time to harvest.

With adult supervision and assistance, they will pick the fruit and leave the owner with as much as they want for themselves. This is very helpful for the kids to understand the value of hard work as well as good for the trees as harvesting the fruit helps encourage the trees health.

We have picked virtually everything so if you or any of your family and friends have trees, bushes etc that you would like us to harvest please contact us by e mail at ezownhome@gmail.com or via Dads (Eric) cell phone at (925) 200-1556

Give me a break - Maurice Duenas. There are Hispanic men all over this town all the time selling fruit on the corner. You do not know how safe that fruit is and they NEVER get shut down nor do they have a business license of health permit. Also what about the Hispanic people that cook and sell food out of their trunk. They use a bike horn to signal they are out front. No permit or license no health permit and the city has been looking for them since people have reportedly gotten sick from their food. These are 2 completely different issues. Kids picking locally grown fruit and selling on the honor system and adults for years knowingly breaking the laws. Do not group the issues..... Pulling the race card makes me sick!

I only see adults selling produce on corners on weekends. They know that the city offices are closed and that no one can contact the Business License Dept. in order to complain.

I see them during the week all the time. Pine Street/College/Chestnut. The police dispatcher told me they will not do anything about that. I wonder why they break the law when our city does NOTHING. Hummmmmm

I'd buy strawberries from those guys at College and Arroyo if they would put put up a big sign with the price on it. I don't like to haggle. Anybody know how much they charge for a flat or half-flat of strawberries?
