Traveling Cart: Why is it Important in Stardew Valley?

Diana

Have you come across a fancy-looking cart in Stardew Valley? That’s the famous Traveling Cart! Before purchasing anything from it, you may want to check out this guide to learn more about this trolley store.

You’ll spend a lot of gold here.

Pierre’s General Store, JojaMart, and Oasis are a few of the go-to shops when purchasing items in Stardew Valley. But whenever they run out of stock on the materials you need, you’ll have to resort to the Traveling Cart.

However, purchase at your own risk as their items can be spendy. If you’re eager to complete some bundles and tasks, here’s a thorough guide to the prices of their items!

What is the Traveling Cart?

It’s a portable shop owned by the Traveling Merchant. It comes with a sophisticated-looking cart pulled by a pig with fez and spectacles. 

They only sell ten randomly picked items in their Standard Stock Pool in limited quantities of one or five pieces each. These wares change daily, but you’ll find different types of furniture in each adjustment.

Moreover, despite their inflated prices, they sometimes sell other items cheaper than their usual cost. You’ll also find other products that you won’t usually see in the current season, and this can help complete some tasks and standard and remixed bundles.

If you want to have a little fun, you can try clicking the pig to discover a somewhat familiar tune. You’ll also find this pig situated in an inner tube as it floats behind the cart during the day of the Night Market event.

Where to Find the Traveling Cart?

The Traveling Cart’s appearance follows a schedule of every 6:00 A.M to 8:00 P.M on Sundays and Fridays. They’re also open during the Night Market Festival from Winter 15 to 17 every 5:00 P.M to 2:00 A.M.

You’ll simply find it in the south of the farm at the Cindersap Forest or the bottom entrance of your farm.
