How to unlock Van in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town
If you want Van, the travelling merchant, to start visiting Mineral Town, then you need to give the Harvest Goddess 30 gifts given over 30 days.
Make sure you keep track of how many gifts you give her, because the Harvest Goddess won't tell you that you've unlocked Van. Instead, Van will greet you when you exit your farmhouse on the first sunny Wednesday after you've given her the thirtieth gift.
From this point onwards, you'll be able to visit his shop in the Inn every Wednesday and his pet store, which will be in Rose Plaza on the 15th of every month.
