Why does the poet use the word ‘cry’ to refer to the fruitmen’s call in the poem ‘In The Bazaars of Hyderabad’?

The fruitmen generally shout their trade cry very loudly to attract more buyers. So this is only appropriate to use the word ‘cry’ to refer to their call. It was very much necessary to use the right words to represent the real picture of the market well before our eyes.

Fruitmen cry for selling their goods so that the people know what they are selling and what they have to buy.
