Summer PDX Food Swap
SUNDAY,  July 21st (4-5:30 pm) 

Hosted by Rosemarried & Sustainable Food for Thought


34 NW 8th Avenue, Portland, OR 97209
(On the corner of NW Couch & NW 8th)

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 addition 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 30 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.
