Join us for our free quarterly event bringing together passionate home cooks, canners and fermentistas to trade homemade and homegrown edible goods! Show off your delightful creations, share heirloom cultures (sourdough, kombucha, buttermilk, kefir, etc), stock your pantry, and get some inspiration all while meeting other like-minded individuals.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
Anyone who wants to trade an abundance of homemade edible goods! Some examples of popular food swap items include:
- Jams & Jellies
- Pickles & chutneys
- Hot Sauces
- Salsas & Relishes
- Ferments of all kinds (krauts, kimchees, preserved lemons, misos, etc)
- Herb & fruit infusions (tinctures, liqueurs, shrubs. etc)
- Live, heirloom cultures (sourdough, kombucha, kefir, yogurt, etc).
We also encourage bringing samples for tasting!
HOW DOES IT WORK
Items are swapped one for one, so please keep that in mind when making and packaging your goods. Bring as many or as few items as you would like to take home!
First, swappers set up with their wares - please keep in mind that people will want to examine your goods, so package them accordingly. Swappers must LABEL ALL ITEMS individually. In addition to labeling jars, it's helpful to bring an index size card which lists ingredients (being mindful of food allergies), and include suggested uses, if applicable. Any fermentation starter cultures should include a recipe or care instructions.
After the items are set up, everybody circulates around the room, asks questions, tastes products, offers barters, and swap items one for one.
You are not obligated to swap with anyone, even if you bid on his/her item or he/she bids on yours. Actual swapping takes place through discussion and agreement. Remember, no money is changing hands. All swaps are one for one and by barter only!
SWAPPING BEGINS AT 6:30! THANK YOU FOR BEING TIMELY.
Please be aware that all goods are made in home kitchens by private individuals, not professionals. We expect all swappers to maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and food safety in the preparation of their items. Nevertheless, by participating in the swap you acknowledge that the items available are not made in licensed kitchens or inspected by any government agency. Preserved does not provide any guarantees or assurances about the safety of the swap items.
