A food swap is part silent auction/part village marketplace/part fun-loving open house where your homemade, homegrown, and foraged creations become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants. Diversify your pantry while meeting your friends and neighbors!
We welcome everyone, as long as you bring something you made, grew, or foraged yourself! You must pre-register to attend. If you plan to bring a family member or friend who will be swapping their own foods, please register them on a separate ticket.
While production of your goods does not have to be done in a commercial kitchen, we expect that you abide by health laws with regard to food-borne pathogens and cross-contamination. by registering for this event, you acknowledge that you abide by health and safety norms. you also acknowledge the risk associated with any items you will trade for. The organizers cannot and do not inspect kitchens or edible items, and will not assume any risk associted with the same.

What to bring
All swap items must be homemade, homegrown, or foraged by you. Think baked goods, jam, pickles, spreads, honey, vinegar, granola, pasta, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, homemade sausages, backyard eggs … you name it! Bring as little or as much as you like. You can bring a bunch of one thing or multiples of a few different things. The possibilities are endless!
Keep in mind that swappers will be examining and picking up your goods, so be sure to package them in a way that protects the food and makes it clear the amounts you want to swap. We encourage reusable, earth-friendly packaging whenever possible.
If possible, you should also bring samples for others to try.
when packaging keep quantities in mind....thinking about what would be considered a fair trade.
