Hawkers: A hawker moves about in residential localities. He carries his goods in a hand cart or bicycle. He deals in low-priced goods of daily use. For example, combs, toys, soaps, mirrors, bangles, vegetables, fruits, ice-cream, etc.
Peddlers: A peddler also moves from house to house and sells articles of daily use. But he carries his wares on his head or on the back of a mule.Therefore, the basic difference between the two is that hawker has a cycle or cart to carry his goods while peddlar carries his goods on heads. So we can say that financially, peddler is weaker than hawker.
