Tickets available for holiday food swap

IMG_1165Tickets are available now for the Holiday Food Swap at Eventbrite and you must have a ticket to participate. Last time I looked we had 33 of 40 tickets available.

It’s that time of year again!!  The chill is in the air and being cozy and crafty by the fire or keeping warm in the kitchen is just what we need. We loved all the great swaps last year at the holiday swap and thought they also made wonderful gifts.  Hope you can make it!

Bring:

  • your hand crafted food and/or food related items (soap, tincture, etc.) to swap *see note below for details*
  • potluck item
  • a box or basket to take home your bounty
  • any food related items you would like to pass on at the free table

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! If possible, bring samples for others to try. A list of ingredients for your food and denoting if it is gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, refined sugar-free, nut-free is helpful for those with food sensitivities.

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. We have one to one trades to keep things simple. Partition your goods in sizes you are comfortable trading on a one to one basis. Samples are always fun!

This is a community event and by participating you are acknowledging that you will use the highest cleanliness standards in you kitchens and gardens to prepare your goods. By participating in this event, you are also acknowledging that the food items being traded are not necessarily prepared in any “approved” kitchen or space inspeceted by any government agency.

This is purely a swap – no selling or exhange of money is allowed. Although the swap is a low-cost event, there are some expenses involved, such as purchasing name tags, making photocopies, use of space, etc. and donoations are welcome. Look for our donation jar at the event!

 

This is an adult only event as we are unable to provide childcare at this time.
