    These are vendors.
    People that travels around selling their stuff on street corners, festivals or flea markets are known as peddlers. :D

    Well, technically peddler has the following etymological roots.

    [Middle English pedlere, probably alteration of peddere, from Medieval Latin pedrius, crosier bearer, from Latin ps, ped-, foot. See pedi-.]

    A vendor is anyone who sells stuff. (Vend). It can be in a store, in a cart, anything. They can be a one time thing or they can be regulars. The slight connotational difference is that a peddler is a transient. Not necessarily always walking or on foot but they are not fixtures anywhere. They move about.

    The connotation is that a peddler "peddles" or walks, his goods about. "Vendor" has no such connotation, it just denotes someone who is selling something(s)

    -Nah-
