Vendors' feelings about dumpster divers
Vendors seemed friendly and generous. Nearby shop owners as well are friendly. Individual experience suggests vendors are willing to give out their leftovers when they see dumpster divers.
The best part was, when we were dumpstering at the corner of a veggie market, vendors handed us a big box of veggies they were about to throw away. Christmas spirit, the benefits of having 2 pretty girls along, or just a general support of "using" instead of "wasting"? You be the judge. According to Caroline
TLog - Trash Log
On Dec 22, 2008 Angie, Caroline and Ethan got about 30 pounds (15 kilos) of fruit and veggies, including a dozen clementines, many potatoes, 5 mangoes, 2 GIANT and many smaller carrots, grapes and strawberries, tomatoes, avocados, a basil plant, a bulb of fennel, a box of beautiful mushrooms, and peppers upon peppers upon peppers. We were handed several items by market vendors and shop keepers, including 4 boxes of pork which we left behind for someone else to find.
