68th Street Fruit Guy Gets Social

  Last modified on November 22nd, 2019

Do you have a favorite fruit stand on the UWS? Well imagine being able to chat with your fruit guy on Instagram! John, who works at the very popular stand on 68th and Columbus Ave, started an Instagram page so that he can alert his clients about his offerings!

John says this is the only account of its kind and is very excited to be on Instagram.

Wondering what the daily selection looks like? John posts regular updates so you can always be in the loop. And just to reiterate: he delivers! Right now delivery is only offered from 7-8 pm, but John is hoping to expand the service to all day.

John loves the UWS. When I asked him what his favorite thing about the neighborhood was, he jokingly said his stand. But he loves the neighborhood. And his neighbors! He has worked at other stands in NYC for the past 1.5 years. He likes to get to know people and looks forward to more of his clients following him online.

John said it’s the quality of the people and neighborhood that make his job so enjoyable. He doesn’t even have one bad thing to say about the UWS. He’s such a positive person!

Some people have told John he’s crazy for starting an Instagram page for the fruit stand. But he says, “No way, it’s business!” It’s the perfect idea, he says. He looks forward to hearing from you to take orders for pick up and delivery!

Make sure to follow John and the 68th Street/Columbus Ave fruit stand at @fruitguy_new_york!
