I'll wait for the Canuck bros to correct me but, other than poutine and fruit/veg stands, I don't really recall having ever seen anything like what you Euro bros describe. (Maple syrup -- sugar shack-, roadside or store-bought -- is an evil racket and does not count.)

Some communities do set up "roadside libraries" (replace Maeve Binchy with well-thumbed copies of Don Cherry's hockey reminiscences) but that's as far as our honesty goes.

Mind you, I believe some of the rural residents leave their mailboxes and road signage out to be shot at.

They're very popular around my neck of the woods, some folks even have an 'open' front garden where you're welcome to help yourself (leave what you consider appropriate) to gooseberries, raspberries, apples, plums, pears ect straight from the bush/tree. One dude has individually priced handmade rams horn walking sticks leant up against his garden wall, choose which one you like and shove your dosh in a slot in the top of an old milk churn.

I love it when you've been camping for a few days or more without a wash and you get in the shower and watch the brown water running down the drain...you get out with a completely different skin tone to which you went in with.
