Late Summer Food Swap: September 23, 2012

Registration is Now Open for our Late Summer Food Swap!
SUNDAY,  SEPTEMBER 23rd (4-6 pm)
Hosted by Rosemarried & Sustainable Food for Thought at Abby's Table in SE Portland


Invite Friends & Spread the Word:

We're excited to announce that registration is officially open for our late summer swap! We've been busy this summer - canning, cooking, crafting, and preserving - and we so look forward to swapping with you all. 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! See below for details, and please don't hesitate to ask questions. We hope to see you all on September 23rd!

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?

When: Sunday, September 23rd, 4-6pm

Where: Abby's Table, 609 SE Ankeny Street, Portland, OR 97214

What: Bring an assortment of your homemade edible specialties (and even a few non-edibles, such as: lip balm, soap, 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 donation jar will be available to help cover the cost of supplies. (Or, better yet, donate one of your hand crafted goods!)


{How?}

a) 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.

b) On Sunday the 23rd, please bring your hand crafted goods and be read to swap at 4:00 pm!

c) It's as simple as that! We’re excited as always to meet one another and celebrate the bounty of the seasons and the fruits of our labor. If you have any questions about the swap, please refer to this handy list of FAQs.

d) Please note the early start time for this particular swap. Make sure to arrive at 4:00pm so we can get started on time. In addition, there will be no appetizer potluck for this swap. Instead, bring extras of the goods you plan to swap so that people can taste and sample your goods!




Registration for this event is now open! 

Please fill out the form below if you would like to register for this event. If you have any questions, please contact pdxfoodswap@gmail.com. Thank you!
Note: I will be on the road for the next week, and will not be checking email. I will send out registration confirmations by September 15th. Thanks for your patience!

Thank you, and we hope to see you on September 23rd!
Thank you! - Lindsay, Rosemarried.com
