When we went to Barcelona a few years ago, we checked out La Boqueria. It was an amazing experience with fresh food, veggies, and fruits that seemingly went on for miles aisle after aisle. And, mixed in around the mercado were restaurants that specialized in foods like pizza, empanadas, coffee, fresh squeezed jugos, seafood, and more. Well, Barcelona is a bit far to travel for that kind of experience, but checking out Mercado on March 1 isn’t so tough.
That’s because Mercado: Street Food + Food Rave will be taking place at Bank Street Events in Stamford. The nom-ing begins at three, goes until six, and there is absolutely no cost to enter. So, onto the food: there will be 18 restaurants and vendors on hand, serving up bites of goodness. Most restaurants will have two options for food (cash only), with most costing just $3-4 with nothing going above $5. So, you can go around, pick and choose, then create your own dining experience.
You’ll want drinks with that food, right? Well, Three60 Events who has organized this event, will have a cash bar on hand. And, there will also be a DJ on hand to add even more flavor.
