Food Trucks Find Mallorca!

Summer is in full swing and you know what that means…

I’m a month late on my annual Puigpunyent feria ecológica (eco-festival.) post. Woo Hoo! That’s right, friends, last month our favorite neighborhood block party meets farmers market meets fair happened once again on our little street, practically on our doorstep. Vendors from all over the island came to tempt the fair-goers with their artisanal treats and wares. We were greeted on a Saturday morning by the tempting smell of fresh pastries, which were literally right off our front stoop.  So, like any self-respecting citizen of a small pueblo (village) would do, I stepped out in solidarity and bought some yummy treats for breakfast. Had I just stood there after stepping off the porch, anyone could have mistaken me for a vendor. Maybe I should have tried sampling the product as a concerned employee. Maybe next year. It was a delightful day of hanging with friends, playing with kiddos and the neighborhood children, enjoying live music and eating way too much food. If you’re ever in Mallorca in early June, I highly recommend the Puigpunyent Feria. It gets bigger and better every year!
