The New York City mayor's office is proposing a bill that will enable more than 1,000 mobile vendors to sell fresh produce in areas of the city where veggies are tough to find. It seems like a great idea--creating a produce distribution network for people in poorer parts of the city. However, some small grocers in those poorer parts of the city are worried that the vendors (who won't pay taxes or rent) will ruin their businesses. It's a fair concern, but it doesn't change the fact that everyone (regardless of his/her zip code) should have access to healthy food.
