Kraków is the second largest city in Poland and one of the oldest in the country, along with being one of the oldest in Europe. The iconic old city is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is also one of the most visited places in Europe by tourists and only spending a few hours here will tell you why. The city is absolutely full of history on every corner, from the castles and cathedrals to the Renaissance courtyards and the cloth hall. Kraków was established in the 7th century and has seen just about every important event in European history and unfortunately having to rebuild and reinvent itself. Among all that reinvention is Kraków’s food culture. So, if you’re in the city and looking to sample its street food, here’s a list of the best street food markets in Kraków, Poland, that you should check out.

Dajwór 21 Food Truck Park is a relatively new space in the area. People who own food trucks come here and sell what they got. Food trucks serving simple, delicious meals are found all over the world and now Krakow is coming up on the trend as well. Having shown up in 2017, the Dajwór 21 Food Truck Park replaced a bar that was located here. Keeping some of the former bar’s infrastructure like the outdoor seating as well as the outdoor heaters, Dajwór 21 Food Truck Park is a great place to hang out even during the colder months. The food trucks serve a range of cuisines, from classic Polish dishes to international favorites like Tex-Mex and even Brazilian barbecue.
