With June comes the summer sun, holidays and a strong desire to be outside as much as possible, especially at the beach. Palo Alto Market is in the spirit with its Beach Market edition, featuring the latest in surfwear, ultra light bicycles, and refreshing food and drink with the featured food trucks and gourmet delights made with care.
The Concept Gallery hosts a special installation of summer essentials: a bike and a surfboard. You'll find offers from Matusalen Bikes, My Beautiful Parking and BCN Bike Club, as well as magnificent boards from Proyecto Sández that are handmade in a Poblenou workshop. You'll also discover the new collection of Wilde sunglasses along with some vintage pieces; the book 'Surf', published by Lamono Books; tropical socks from Pacific & Co.; premium trainers from Alpaso Sneakers; and modern footwear from De Ubieta. The men from Melba will take you on a trip directly to the seaside with their virtual reality apparatuses, giving you the next best thing to surfing the real waves.
There's also a workshop where kids can prepare tasty and refreshing fruit and veg juices. Plus, on both days of the market you can enjoy international vegetarian and vegan cooking from Vegetalia; organic gourmet free-trade and local creations from GatBlau; and cakes and deluxe cupcakes from Tres Tristes Tigres; among much more.
And that's not all! The Palo Alto Market folks are also still big fans of music, and this weekend is no exception. Londoner Tonia Richardson is on hand with her huge presence and voice to wow you with top funk and soul on the Aperol Spritz stage, with covers of tunes by Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Chaka Kahn and Moloko, among others. Electronic duo Betty Belle is on the Be Chyc stage with her mix of classic soul, '70s disco and synth pop. Singer-songwriter Maria Rodés can break the hardest of hearts with her voice, and she'll perform an eclectic repertoire at the Los Maridajes de Torres garden.
