Event description

Description

Come join us at the Food Swap! Meet your neighbours and bring home some tasty treats at the same time!

We welcome everyone from hobbyists to chefs; we just ask that you bring your best offerings to share.

For swapping, appropriate items include home preserved foods, jams, chutneys, pickles, oils, syrups, baked goods, candies, and more.... If you made it, you can trade it!

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 last season's jam to a loaf of bread you baked that day. The swapping itself is a friendly and casual barter transaction based on bids. You will make in-kind trades with other swappers and leave with tasty new treats for your pantry. In most cases, swaps are one-to-one; this is a casual neighbourly event, not a market to haggle over value. We suggest bringing extra for samples, and while packaging and presentation is wholly up to the individual, recycled containers are encouraged.

Schedule:

12-12:15 PM: Check-In, set up
12:15-1 PM: Announcements, sample foods and mingle.
1-2 PM: Swap!
