Street food is ready-to-eat food or drink sold by a hawker, or vendor, in a street or other public place, such as at a market or fair. It is often sold from a portable food booth, food cart, or food truck and meant for immediate consumption. Some street foods are regional, but many have spread beyond their region of origin. Most street foods are classed as both finger food and fast food, and are cheaper on average than restaurant meals.

The presence of street food vendors in New York City throughout much of its history, such as these circa 1906, are credited with helping support the city’s rapid growth.
Small fried fish were a street food in ancient Greece;however, Theophrastus held the custom of street food in low regard. Evidence of a large number of street food vendors was discovered during the excavation of Pompeii. Street food was widely consumed by poor urban residents of ancient Rome whose tenement homes did not have ovens or hearths. Here, chickpea soup with bread and grain paste were common meals.

In ancient China, street food generally catered to the poor, however, wealthy residents would send servants to buy street food and bring it back for them to eat in their homes.

A traveling Florentine reported in the late 14th century that in Cairo, people brought picnic cloths made of rawhide to spread on the streets and sit on while they ate their meals of lamb kebabs, rice, and fritters that they had purchased from street vendors. In Renaissance Turkey, many crossroads had vendors selling “fragrant bites of hot meat”, including chicken and lamb that had been spit-roasted. In 1502, Ottoman Turkey became the first country to legislate and standardize street food.

L’idea dell’evento fonde la tendenza del momento,il cibo di strada, sempre più protagonista di eventi e festival,con le tradizioni locali. A Barga l’appuntamento è nella centralissima Piazza Pascoli da mattina a sera. Saranno presenti una quindicina di “Food truck”, mezzi caratteristici e variopinti, dall’Ape alla roulotte rivisitata, che proporranno il cibo di strada di diverse regioni italiane e non; si va dalle olive ascolane delle Marche, alla cucina fusion piemontese e balcanica, ai piatti di strada olandesi, alla piadina tirata a mano o allo gnocco fritto romagnoli ed emiliani, per arrivare al lampredotto fiorentino e altro ancora

“STREET LOVE” si presenta come un innovativo concept di evento in grado di fondere in un unico festival arte, musica e cibo, con l’obbiettivo di racchiudere in sé la nuova tendenza mondiale dello “street food” e le tradizioni dei luoghi e delle terre in cui la manifestazione prenderà vita.

Il festival per la prima volta arriva a Barga, in una terra ricchissima di tradizioni e da sempre aperta alle novità e alle nuove tendenze e sarà ad ingresso gratuito.
