Plaza Midwood Food and Seed Swap!

A food swap is a recurring event where members of a community share homemade, homegrown, or foraged foods with each other. Swaps allow direct trades to take place between attendees, e.g., a loaf of bread for a jar of pickles or a half-dozen backyard eggs. No cash is exchanged, and no goods are sold.

Diversify your pantry and go home happy and inspired while meeting your friends and neighbors!

How do I participate?

RSVP, tell us what you'll be bringing and then show up at 2pm sharp! The first half hour will be used to set up your goods and check out what everyone else has brought. Swapping will begin at 2:30 and will finish up around 3:00. Everyone is of course welcome to stick around to socialize and to grab a refreshing drink from the bar!

For the April swap, seed swapping is also encouraged!

Who can participate?
We welcome everyone, as long as you bring something you made, grew, or foraged yourself!

What do people bring?
All food swap items must be homemade, homegrown, or foraged by you. Think baked goods, jam, pickles, beer, spreads, honey, vinegar, mead, 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, reused, earth-friendly packaging whenever possible. If possible, you should also bring samples for others to try.

    I have an abundance of organic multiplier onions you can plant in your garden (for shallots/green onions - super easy to grow and they come in very handy) and I will also be bringing a few of our very own homebrews as well as fresh organic herbs.
