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!
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 on a separate ticket.
September 18, 2011 from 2pm to 4pm
Space With A Soul, 281 Summer St, Boston, MA
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, you should also bring samples for others to try.
We will do anything we can to bring you the Boston Food Swap at an affordable price. However, in the summer, our non-profit host, Space With a Soul has to pay for air conditioning for our event. If you make a small donation, it will go to paying the A/C fee for the venue. Payment can be made at the door .
