What is it called in English?

In the Ladykillers, there was such a merchant called a barrow boy, which seems to be the British equivalent of the US pushcart peddler.

You'll have to describe the 'vehicle'. Fruits and vegetables can be sold from a van, a lorry, a cart, the basket on the front of a grocer's bicycle ...
"Vehicle" is too vague.

Perhaps Produce Stand.

You can call it a fruit and vegetable truck or a produce truck or van. It will be understood. When I was young, my neighbor drove around the local area selling fruits, vegetables, snacks, and other items. We just referred to it as a fruit truck.

At least in the USA, I don't know of a special name for that. People in more rural areas sometimes do sell right off the tailgate of their pickup trucks, but that has no special name other than truck. If there is a shade tent, we might call it a produce stand.Source(s): Like this? http://pididu.com/wordpress/bike2017/files/2017/06...

USA doesn't have that. You buy from a grocery store or a produce market and there aren't many of them left either.

If someone sets up a small shop just to sell produce, it is called a produce stand. None is sold on vehicles.

Greengrocer's van? Maybe a Grocer's van if it also sells other foodstuffs.
It is no longer a common sight in England.

We don't sell fruits and veggies from any vehicle. There are FOOD SERVICE trucks...which have a nickname...ROACH COACH.
