Meet Denish – aka Greens Boy

Denish, popularly know as “Greens Boy”, can be heard approaching with his horse and cart from miles away. You hear him shouting “Greeeeennnnsss thiiis sssiiiddeee” from his loud speakers. The sound is so unique and melodious that children (and sometimes adults too) is heard mimicking the call. Some strangers find it amusing and sometimes ask for him to repeat the call for their amusement. A few folks have reported that even on days when he is not selling that they will hear his calls lingering in the distance.

His cart is well laid out with vegetables, fruits, ground provisions, eggs, salted fish and brooms. Sometimes he even has fresh milk for sale. His vegetables are always fresh. Dinesh says that he grows most of the vegetables himself.

He sells from Mondays to Thursdays and traverse from La Jalousie (where he lives) to Crane village (Tuesdays and Thursdays) and to Hague (Mondays and Wednesdays). His customers are always satisfied and are happy to see him. Dinesh says that he has been doing this for a long time and he enjoys it very much.
