Plaza Midwood Food 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 between 2:00 and 2:30 on the day of the swap! The first half hour will be used to set up your goods and start checking out what everyone else has brought. Swapping will begin around 2:45. Everyone is of course welcome to stick around to socialize and to grab a refreshing drink from the bar!

Seed or seedling swapping is also encouraged!

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

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.

Have any questions? Please ask!

      I'm trying to figure out what to bring...not sure that some of the item I'm considering would stand up to the heat ;-)

      YEs, it will be on the front patio unless it rains. We can get ice from the bar to keep your items chilled, just bring something to put the ice in! : )
