Melons are everywhere during the summer; you can’t walk down a street without seeing a heap of melons. The most popular seems to be watermelon. It’s not a surprising thing that refreshing watermelon is so popular here when summer temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius; but what is surprising, is how and where they are sold. 

In the UK, it is not usual to see anyone selling things in the street, except at organised markets or events. I am unsure as to whether people here in Romania have to obtain permission in order to sell melons in the street – but from what I have seen and experienced, these ‘pop up’ melon stalls seem as though they don’t have any rules or regulations surrounding them.
