Santa Monica Food Swap on Sunday, June 26
Sunday, June 26, 2011 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Santa Monica, CA
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, as well.
Sunday, June 26, 2011, 2 pm - 4 pm
Please arrive promptly at 2 pm. If you cannot come, please notify us 48 hours before the event.
After attending the SFV Swap, fellow swapper, Frank, kindly offered his beautiful salon for our event! Please check out their website and show the salon some love. :)

Santa Monica, CA 90401 (310) 395-9882
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.
