Van Van Mercat

The food truck hype has arrived in Barcelona and Van Van Mercat is one of the most popular food truck events of the city

Barcelona tends to be a bit slow when it comes to picking up on hypes. The Catalans like traditions. However at the end of 2014 Van Van brought the city one of their first food truck events. At that time based in Parc de la Ciutadella, a colourful collection of antique trucks lined up and introduced Barcelona to street food.

Ever since, more and more street food markets are popping up throughout the year. But VanVan is my favourite. It keeps changing location, making sure that they are situated in an interesting and stunning part of the city. Previous editions have covered Parc de la Ciutadella, the Monumental bull fighting stadium and the square in front of the modern art museum MACBA.

VanVan offers a diverse selection of street food. The gastronomic event offers you Thai curry, hot dogs, crêpes, Catalan sausages and many other things. It always provides plenty of seatings and a big separate bar to get your refreshments. Depending on the edition, sometimes there’s live music. But the great vibe is always present!  A must do if you happen to be in town when Van Van Mercat is on.

Van Van Mercat’s next edition:
Park de la Ciutadella
21 – 24 September
