Just a few feet away from the busy intersection of Red Hill and Walnut avenues is a fruit stand that's as ordinary as any fruit stand around. It sells freshly picked Valencia oranges for $2 per bag and avocados at 50 cents each. A sign says self-service, and please, put the money in the metal box on the top shelf. No one watches. Anyone could just walk away and not bother to pay.
