Poble Nou is the old industrial neighbourhood and therefore many old warehouses and factories are converted into new hotspots. Palo Alto was one of the first to bring the hipster vibe to the barrio and it’s still going strong.
The area of an old factory has been converted into a festival area and every month it hosts one of the city’s most popular events, the Palo Alto Market. At the stunning location of a deserted factory covered in greens and flowers, hipsters have conquered a spot to put their business on display.
It’s a mix of everything; local fashion designers, sunglass brands, artisanal jewellery or ecological cosmetics, you name it, they have it. Every month has a special theme and the market stands and music tend to be adapted to that theme!
You can also find many food trucks with a delicious offer of street food to go with a nice cool glass of local Moritz beer!
This is one of my favourite weekend events, for the stunning location and inspirational young designers putting their products on display. Sometimes it gets a bit busy and you’ll have to queue up. If you go to shop, I’d recommend you go in the mornings as it is more quiet. Are you coming for the good vibes? Head over in the afternoon when the music heats up and the crowd might even dare to dance. With a cold beer in the sun at a stunning location, it’s good vibes only!
