English term or phrase: the hardcore sidewalk sellers
I was joined by some little kid. He made the sellers so nervous I could not buy anything. Even the hardcore sidewalk sellers freaked when I tried to buy something.

Explanation:
Si uno es "hardcore" quiere decir que uno es tenaz, perserverante, un poco extremo. Se puede aplicar a muchissimas cosas:

He was a hardcore surfer; he would go in the water despite the shark warnings.

She is a hardcore runner; she goes jogging twice a day, everyday!

NO se refiere a pornografía en este caso, por lo menos que no dice "even the sidewalk hardcore pornography sellers..."

  -> Si, no se puede usar hardcore para referirse a pornografia sin decier porno porque tiene un uso muy extendido en ingles

agree  boni: No, no se refiere a pornografía, es un adjetivo que tiene vida fuera del mundo X!
