Can you build a vegetable planter on concrete?

Why not? Build your box as you ordinarily would. Then place it on the concrete. If your question is more about putting a wood-framed raised bed on concrete, then I would say yes -but make sure the soil is deep enough for the vegetables you are planting.
Drainage is key. If you are building a box, make sure to put in drainage holes.
Either way, make sure that you keep the plants watered. The heat-holding and radiating power of concrete will dry out the soil quickly if it is in full sun all day.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
