Event Details

We are thrilled to announce the inaugural SF Swappers event, taking place on May 15 at 12 noon in the Mission District.

We welcome everyone from hobbyists to chefs with professional experience (who we encourage to use the food swap as a platform to branch out) and are excited to meet each and every one of you!

For snackage at the event, please bring your best brunch-appropriate potluck offerings to share (scones and muffins, quiche, fruit salad, etc.). We'll provide a couple of delectable dishes of our own and a special Coconut Strawberry Elixir.

For swapping, appropriate items include home canned foods, jams, chutneys, oils, syrups, infused liquors, baked goods, candies, pickles and more... If you made it and it's edible, you can trade it! We suggest portion sizes between 4–16 oz, depending on the cost of the materials involved.

How does the swapping work? All you need to do is bring 5-10 items (though some people bring more, some less), which can range from a jar of peaches you put up last summer to a loaf of bread you baked that day. The swapping itself is a friendly and casual barter transaction. You will make in-kind trades with other swappers and leave with tasty new treats for your larder. We suggest bringing a little extra for samples, and while packaging and presentation is wholly up to the individual, recycled containers are encouraged.

You can find more info, including a swapping how-to on the blog, plus like us on Facebook and/or follow us on Twitter: @sfswappers to stay in-the-know on all things swap-related. If you have additional questions, contact us at

And if you haven't already seen this NY Times article featuring our swapper friends in Brooklyn, check it out: BK Swappers in the New York Times. They are our inspiration for kicking this off in SF. 

Tickets will be available starting at 6 pm on Tuesday, April 19th. Can't wait to see you at the swap!
