Charlie Taverner in his column on CityMetric.com might just be offering supermarkets a path to Grocerant success.
Street food, he writes, has always been an urban phenomenon. A set of historical essays, aptly titled Food Hawkers: Selling in the Streets from Antiquity to the Present has chapters on ancient Rome, Naples in the 1700s, and modern-day Bangkok. The topline is that until recently, rich and poor city folk alike bought most of their food, raw and cooked, from stalls or wanderers on the streets.
