Last call! There are only four spots left for this Saturday’s Wallyhood Food Swap. There really is limited room, so if you plan to come, please RSVP now to reserve a spot. Here’s what we told you about it when we first announced it a few weeks back:
Do you cook, bake, can, jar, grow, distill, brew, shepherd or summon? Do you, perhaps, cook, bake, can, etc. too much? Interested in swapping some of what you got for some of what someone else has baked, canned, jarred, grown, etc?
Then come on out to the first ever Wallyhood Food Swap on Saturday, April 16th at 2 pm!
Here’s how it works:
- Participants bring something or somethings they’ve made
- Everyone’s items are placed on tables where they can be viewed, alongside a blank card
- Everyone looks over the goods and writes their name on the card next to the things you want, along with what you’re offering to swap for
- After an hour, it’s swap time! You find the people on your card that have offered something you want and you swap! What’s a “fair swap”? It’s up to you. Nobody has to swap, the cards are just a starting point for conversations.
So simple, right? Here what you can bring:
- Must be homemade or homegrown by you
- Must be consumable (i.e., no soap or crafts, just food, drink and the like)
- Must be wrapped or packaged for swapping
- Your “presentation area” will be 1.5′ square, so something needs to fit there (but you can stow extras in a corner)
You can bring several different items, you can bring many of the same item or you can bring just one item, whatever suits your fancy.

Click here to RSVP now, attendance is limited to 20 people.
Following swap, there will be an optional potluck. Bring a dish if you want to stick around (dish doesn’t have to be the same thing you brought to swap).
