ALBANY, GA (WALB) - For roadside vendors who take to the streets to make their money, that income is not guaranteed.

Roadside vending is nothing new but with the economy struggling to get on track you would think wouldn't be a good time for robust sales.

But some told us they're beating the odds and doing good business despite the tough times.

Roadside vending is something Rodney Moore has known for most of his life, and this is how he's been making a living. He says all-in-all business is good.

"Oh yeah it's been really good, and we try to hold our prices down and work on a smaller percentage and it just works better like that," said Rodney Moore, Vendor.

Moore says he's seeing less young people getting into roadside vending these days.

At a time where many people are cutting back on those vacations plans he said he'll be able to close down that stand and take a vacation next week.
