Meet Consiglia, the street vendor that sells cheese & veggies from an old pushchair in Zejtun
Street vendors were all the rage back in the day with many business people taking to the streets to sell their produce – milk, flowers, cheese, veggies, you name it. Jean-Paul from Kappa Vision captured one of the few street vendors left on the islands in action. “When was the last time you bought cheese and vegetables from a local street vendor with an old pushchair?” he asks.
“Somewhat of a dying breed, it was a pleasant surprise to come across Consiglia as she was on her way to the Żejtun square to sell her daily fresh produce. Sheep cheeselets (gbejniet), garlic, onions, eggs and potatoes: her pram was packed to the brim!”
“We took a bag of her onions and a box of gbejniet tal-bzar (the peppered ones) for a ridiculously cheap price - and they were the freshest and best we ever ate!”
