New Orlean’s most celebrated street food vendor,  Arthur Robinson AKA ‘Mr Okra’ died last Thursday. 

“The last of the neighbourhood truck driver” and old school peddlers – from when people like ‘The Waffle Man’, the ‘Hot Stuffed Crab Lady’ or the ‘Ha Ha Man’ used to sit on their doorsteps calling out singsong selling jingle – Mr Okra used to roam the kerbs every day selling fresh fruit produce from his loudly painted pickup-truck-cum-fruit-stand.

Watch the 60 sec doc above to see how he slinged it, big up to such a wonderful character – we want to see more stuff like this back on the streets!
