Cries of the street hawker passing on warmth

文字-A A +A

The mobile grocery store may be an important part of the lives of residents in Luzhu District, Taoyuan, but for Chen Tian-gui (陳添貴), the store’s owner, it is his entire life. Each morning, Chen Tian-gui begins stocking the shelves of his mobile store, which sells everything from vegetables and fresh food to snacks and cooked food. The boss, Chen Tiangui, began following his father’s mobile grocery business when he was in junior high school and has continued for the last 35 years.

 

But the times have gradually changed, and nowadays, people eat out more, spending less time cooking at home. This has meant that the business of hawking vegetables isn’t as lucrative as days gone by. Despite this, A-gui, as the locals know him, continues to hawk his wears, and is a symbol of the connection between people. Uniting people at a visceral level, the driving force which keeps him hawking his wares on the streets despite less than favorable returns, is the hope of sharing that warm human touch which shopping so often lacks today.

溫暖傳遞 移動中的叫賣聲

移動中的叫賣聲,是桃園蘆竹區居民生活中的一部分,但這卻是老闆陳添貴的人生。每天清晨四點開始備貨,車上的商品,從蔬菜、生鮮、到零嘴熟食樣樣都有,老闆陳添貴從國中時期,就開始跟著爸爸的叫賣車做起生意,這一做就是三十五年。

隨著時代改變,大家開始選擇外食,較少在家中開伙煮飯,賣菜車的生意大不如從前,但居民口中賣菜車的阿貴,是連結大家的象徵。小小的賣菜車串起了居民間的情感,陳添貴也將這些溫暖化為持續叫賣的動力。
