Food Swap

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Do you make a scrumptious blueberry muffin? Maybe you brew your own beer? Have some chickens at home that grow some eggs? Maybe you make sweet, delicious honey? Bring them all to the Food Swap! For this event Appleton Farms provides a space for people to bring their own homemade creations (a dish, beer, baked goods, crops, artisan crafts, etc.) and showcase them in a silent auction type of swap. The way it works is you will showcase your items and allow (if possible) others to sample it. During that time you also take part in sampling what others brought. Then, when the facilitator gives the signal it is a mad dash to make a deal and swap your items with other things you had your eye on! Not only is a swap a great time to see the passions of other people in our community, it is a great way for us all to come together and share our wonderful gifts!

This event is free but you must email Kyle if you are interested (kjacoby@thetrustees.org). This event requires a minimum of 10 vendors to run. This will also allow us to prepare accordingly and provide you with more information on how the swap works. Can't wait to see you there!
