May Food Swap

A food swap is part silent auction/part village marketplace/part fun-loving open house where your homemade, homegrown, and foraged creations become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants. Diversify your pantry while meeting your 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. If you plan to bring a family member or friend who will be swapping their own foods, please register them, as well.

WHEN: Sunday, May 6th 2012, 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Please arrive on time to get the most out of your swap. We will plan on spending 15 minutes for individual set-up. With tasting to commence at 3:45pm.  If you cannot come, please notify us 48 hours before the event.

WHAT TO BRING: 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 … 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, we encourage you to bring samples.  This will greatly improve everyone's experience!

NOTE: If you have signed up for a swap before, you used eventbrite.  For this particular event eventbrite is not setup and we will be using the meetup page for official RSVPs.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
