Has anyone been to this place Jensen beach? Barbours Produce - 2440 NE Indian River Dr

First time I went this morning.. and there's a ton of Mexicans working there.. I also read before I went there's illegals working there...

It also seemed strange that they gave me no receipt when I paid and they have no cash register.

I did buy 5 oranges and 5 tomatoes for $3.00 though

Did they have a tattoo on their forehead that indicated they were illegal?

I mean sure, they could be, but working for cash is hardly an indicator. Just about every handyman, many contractors etc will take cash for jobs. Hell I've even had people take cash for lesser amounts and write up a higher second invoice for me so I had a larger basis in a property.

Whenever I go to Stuart I take Indian River Drive and welcome the opportunity to stop at Barbour's. It's been around for years, so if the government has/had a problem with them, I suspect they'd've been noticed by now.

I'm a fan of whoever supplies their pots of herbs—very generous, bushy plants for $3.

That's not a good indicator to base their perceived citizenship status.

Was there for the first time this past weekend. Yes, there were what I assumed to be Hispanic women working there. They only accept cash/checks. While the produce they did carry was plentiful and good, I like Nelson's better. And they have more/better parking.

Seems rather odd that you would support these supposed illegals by buying their produce.

My take on it is that they are working for a living and not collecting welfare. I sort of feel badly for them. If they're working, their legal status is questioned. If they hang out in front of their houses they are called *** whatever. It seems they can't get it right. Their legal status never crosses my mind when I stop at veg and fruit stand where Spanish people are working.

JMHO

Mexicans are some of the hardest working people IMO. And they're usually busting their ass for pennies. How can you not respect that? Plus I love me some real Mexican food and good cheap produce!
