Join us for an edible evening of swapping homemade treats at Wyck Historic House, Garden and Farm.
A Food Swap is part silent auction/part village marketplace/part fun-loving open house where your homemade creations (breads, preserves, special concoctions, canned goods, etc.) become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants. What better way to diversify your pantry and rub shoulders with friends and neighbors?
Who: We welcome everyone, as long as you bring something you made, grew, or foraged yourself. You must pre-register to attend. Also, remember that there is a limited number of tickets, so if for some reason you cannot make it, let us know and we can adjust the guest list accordingly. If you plan to bring a family member or friend who will be participating, we ask that they register separately. Non-swapping guests are welcome to come and observe, but please be considerate of our space limitations.
What: Bring an assortment of your homemade edible specialties (think pickles, preserves, eggs, baked goods, honey, granola, pasta, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, yogurt… you name it!) to exchange for other handcrafted delights. Philly Swappers will provide name tags, tables, and organization for the event.
If possible, please bring samples for others to try!
NEW(ish): We will NOT be providing paper swap cards at the swap, so please print and fill out your own ahead of time to bring with you. Also, if you have an extra folding table and can bring it with you, please do!!
Potluck: If you would like, please bring a savory finger food for our potluck table. To keep this event as waste free as possible, we encourage swappers to bring their own plates, cups, and utensils.
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!)
Where: The beautiful Wyck Historic House, Garden and Farm – 6026 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19144. Also – as many of us come from the same areas please go to our Facebook page for carpool opportunities!
The Honor Code
This is a community event; however, participants must pre-register. It goes without saying that participants are using the highest cleanliness standards in their own kitchens and gardens to prepare their submissions. Nevertheless…
• By participating in this event, you are acknowledging that the food items being traded are not necessarily prepared in any “approved” kitchen or space inspected by any government agency.
• By participating in this event, you are also acknowledging that you will use the highest standards of cleanliness in food preparation.
Questions can be emailed to PhillySwappers@gmail.com.
We’re so excited to meet one another and celebrate the bounty of the seasons and the fruits of our labor!
See you there!
