Join us for an edible evening of swapping homemade treats at the Garage at Weavers Way.
We hope that you can join us! This is a very exciting swap as it marks FIVE years of food swapping in Philly. We will follow the swap (3-5pm) by a legitimate potluck and party. Live music and frivolity!
A Food Swap is part silent auction/part village marketplace/part fun-loving open house where your homemade creations (breads, preserves, special concoctions, canned goods, etc.) become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants. What better way to diversify your pantry and rub shoulders with friends and neighbors?
Who: We welcome everyone, as long as you bring something you made, grew, or foraged yourself. You must pre-register to attend. Also, remember that there is a limited number of tickets, so if for some reason you cannot make it, let us know and we can adjust the guest list accordingly. If you plan to bring a family member or friend who will be participating, we ask that they register separately. Non-swapping guests are welcome to come and observe, but please be considerate of our space limitations.
What: You don't need to be a master chef to participate! Bring an assortment of your homemade edible specialties (think veggie starts, cookies, breads, pickles, preserves, eggs, baked goods, honey, granola, pasta, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, yogurt… you name it!) to exchange for other handcrafted delights.You will be given the opportunity to offer trades in a silent-auction type format, and you will be free to choose which trades to accept for your products. Bring as much or as little as you like; there are no caps or minimums. However, we suggest bringing between 10 to 15 items. You could bring several of the same item, or an assortment!
**We will NOT be providing paper swap cards at the swap, so please print and fill out your own ahead of time to bring with you.**
If possible, please bring samples for others to try!
