That's kind of like photographers placing watermarks across their images or enforcing their copyright when images are copied. Other artists also have the right to control the way their products are copied. Instead of supporting another artist, you just made photographers look hypocritical.

Well that would be true if the OP was taking close up images of the actual product (or the product that the stall holder makes is actually stalls). As the OP made clear in his post he was photographing the street and the stalls in it. That isn't copyright infringement - you aren't "copying" an item (in the legal sense) when you take a photo that happens to include that item as part of a scene.
