Definition Of peddled


try to sell (something, especially small goods) by going from house to house or place to place.

Much the same advice applies as in Spain; avoid leather goods and wooden trinkets, especially those peddled by hawkers who wander the beaches of the Algarve interrupting your sunbathing.
