The fruit stands that sell whole fruits and vegetables don't need health department permits.
"It crosses the line when people, they process the fruit they are selling. If they are cutting it, having it ready to eat it, or if they are cooking it or processing it into jams and jellies, then they are going to need a permit," said Oshiro.

"Do you know where they cut the fruits?" asked Oshiro. The workers told us they were cut in the lunch wagon.
But, just minutes before, a complaint about a vendor cutting fruit using a dirty knife and cutting board triggered a visit by a food inspector who confirmed the unsanitary practice.

Unsuspecting visitors and residents would probably rather not be surprised by getting more than just a refreshing treat when they pull over.
