Is California the only place where this happens?

I have always wondered about the people you see standing on the freeway off ramps and side of the street selling stuff most always flowers or fruit, but I have never seen this any where else so is it really just Cali that has that or do other places have people that do that too

  • there is a guy who sells newspapers near all the fast food restuarants, and several flower stands especially around holidays and veggie and fruit stands in the summer....
