Inside, vendors yell to sell clothes, electronics, and jewelry. For my undocumented family, el Swapmeet was our neighborhood store, a five-minute walk from our house.
It also was a way to stay rooted to our motherland. Status limited us from going back to Mexico, but el Swapmeet was our gateway to the culture and identity that sometimes felt lost to us. We were there two or three times a week for years, with my mother doing the shopping for the food she made at home. I never knew how precious this was until I had to leave South Los Angeles in I moved to Portage, Indiana, of all places.
I was following my parents, who had moved away four years previously, and I thought it was time to be close to them and finish my education. My parents had had to move because a gang in South Los Angeles threatened to kill my father when my dad filed a report with police about members who had demanded money from him as a condition of selling tamales on the street.
Such gang activity has long been a hazard for people who sell food and other items on the street, including for the street vendors who work outside el Swapmeet.
