Hello, Swappers!

Summer’s in full swing. Let’s see what you’ve been growing/brewing/cooking/whipping up!

Registration is now open for our Sunday swap.

For those of you who’ve attended our swaps previously, please feel free to scroll down to the registration form at the bottom. If you’re new to the PDX Food Swap – hello and welcome! Read on for details, and please don’t hesitate to ask questions.

Add your name to our mailing list to get notifications of future swaps. We hope to see you all on Sunday afternoon!

Baerlic Brewery & Taproom
2235 SE 11th Avenue
Portland, OR 97214

What: A Food Swap is part silent auction/part village marketplace/part open house where your homemade creations (breads, preserves, infusions, canned goods, etc.) become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants. What better way to diversify your pantry and meet a few new food-minded friends?

Bring an assortment of your homemade edible specialties (and even a few non-edibles, such as: lip balm, soaps, etc.) to exchange for other handcrafted delights. We will provide swapping cards, name tags, and organization for the event. You will be given the opportunity to offer trades in a silent-auction type format, and you will be free to choose which trades to accept for your products. Bring as much or as little as you like; there are no caps or minimums.

Who: Pacific Northwesterners {aka the Willamette Valley, the Portland Metro Area, and our Neighbors to the North}.

Please note, we are unable to provide childcare for this event.

Cost: Swap participants will be given free entry; a suggested donation of your hand crafted goods or a small monetary donation to the supply-fund jar helps cover the cost and energy of swap organizers.

RSVP below with your name, contact info, & description of items you plan to trade.

Make sure to register early! Due to limited space, we are capping the number of swappers at 35 and will maintain a waiting list. The last few swaps have filled up quickly, so make sure to fill out the registration form as soon as possible.

On the day of the swap, please bring your hand crafted goods and arrive promptly at the start time. Please don’t arrive early – we won’t be quite ready for you! The first half-hour of the event is dedicated to swapper sign-in, set-up, and samples, and we’ll only begin swapping once everyone’s settled in. Feel free to bring samples of your goods for others to try during the open browsing portion of the swap.

    I was excited to hear of the next food swap; then deflated when I found out it will be held the week I am in Montana.

    Please tell me the date of the next one after August. Thank you and good swapping😃

      Oh, darn it! So bummed to miss having you, Vickie. We’ll try to get an autumn date and venue on the books and get the word out 🙂

    As it turns out, my trip has been postponed. I can make it, after all. I registered last Thursday, but received no confirmation. Do I need to register again? Thanks
