PORTLAND, OREGON - May 05, 2012 - Juice-maker Lucy Wills peeled a red and green mango at her stand, which was piled high with lemons and oranges and strawberries. She got into business for herself about 10 years ago when she made an agua fresca for her husband, and he suggested, why don't you sell these? "It's not just Mexicans here," said Wills, who works at various farmers markets. "It's a whole bunch of different people." The Cinco de Mayo Fiesta along Tom McCall Waterfront Park runs through the weekend. Janie Har/The Oregonian
