South Bay Food Swap: End of Winter Edition

March 18, 2018

South-Bay-Food-SwapThe next South Bay Food Swap will take place on Sunday, March 18 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Honest Abe Cidery.

South Bay Food Swap is an eclectic gathering of artisan food lovers, who exchange extraordinary, handmade and homegrown food creations. Their mission is to bring together the community by sharing a love and passion for creating, and growing, fabulous food representative of various cultures and world travels.

A Food Swap is part silent auction/part village marketplace/part fun-loving open house. It’s a modern take on an old tradition. Your homemade creations become your own personal currency that you can use to swap with other participants. No cash is exchanged. Artisanal goodies change hands and everyone goes home happy and inspired.

Anyone can participate! Home bakers/cooks, canners, gardeners, food bloggers, professional chefs, students…pretty much anyone who likes to grow, make, or share food.
