The Hudson Valley’s Food Swappers are at it again, this time at Beacon's Blackbird Attic Boutique at 6pm! All are welcome and admission is free!
The Hudson Valley Food Swap is held every few months, and is an opportunity for people to trade homemade or homegrown foods. If you bake, cook, can, preserve, brew, ferment, mix, forage, grow your own and would like to trade the fruits of your labor for other delectable, homemade foods, then come to our next swap event on June 13th!
When you make a batch of jam, pickles or the like, you often end up with an excess that you’d feel comfortable letting go for the sake of keeping your pantry interesting. For a few of those excess jars, you could swap for fresh, handcrafted foods for virtually no cost. Food swaps allow attendees to trade directly with one another, e.g. a bag of cookies for a jar of pickles or a half-dozen backyard eggs. These events are a great way to diversify the homemade foods in your own pantry while getting to know members of your local food community.
Attendees are asked to bring as few or as many items as they want. You can bring many of the same item or all different items. Please package your items in a way that protects the food and makes clear the amount that you want to swap.
