Event Details

Cambridge Winter Farmers Market Logo

For our January Food Swap, we're venturing to the other side of the river on a Saturday afternoon.  Join us at the Cambridge Community Center (during the winter farmer's market!) as we exchange creative prepared foods. Please see Bostonfoodswap.com for more details. 

 

Transportation to the Community Center: For parking, the spaces immediately around the center are for residents but you can park at the M.L.King School, on Putnam Ave and at the corner of Kinnaird Street (a one way) . The parking lot is accessed from Kinnaird, just opposite 102 Kinnaird. 
 
For public transit, the Center is closest to the Central Square T stop on the Red Line.  The walk is approximate 1/2 mile down Western Ave or (if your food is heavy) you can take the 70 or 70A bus down Western.

If you have any feedback about this time or location, e-mail us at bostonfoodswap@gmail.com.

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, home brews … 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.

Organizer

Boston Food Swap

The goal of our monthly swaps is to create outlet for sharing surplus goods and offer an alternative to store-bought items, helping swappers eat locally, sustainably, and affordably. We’re active in the swapping and local food communities, and we’re working to grow the swap through blogging, social media, and partnerships with like-minded organizations.
