Jiuquan, China

A roving fish monger. He drives up, you pick your (live) fish, and he cuts it’s head off, guts, and cleans it while you wait. An extreme version of “farm to table”.

    1. Given the number of fish he had, I doubt he caught them all himself, but it is possible. I have seen other cases, with veggies in restaurants for example, where workers appeared to have just been out in a garden picking stuff and were cleaning, trimming etc. for use in the restaurant that day. So at least in the small operations, a lot seems to be directly from a local garden (or animal supply) that day.
