Hello, swappers! We've missed you! We are thrilled to announce that registration is now open for our April swap. Please note that this swap will be held at a new location: Sharp, the restaurant at the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Portland. Sharp is located on the corner of NW Couch and 8th.

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 April 14th!

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, April 14th, 4-6pm

Where: Please note the new location!!! Sharp, the restaurant of the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Portland. Sharp is located at the corner of NW Couch and 8th in downtown Portland.

What: 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 donation jar will be available to help cover the cost of supplies. (Or, better yet, donate one of your hand crafted goods!)


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 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.

b) On Sunday the 14th, please bring your hand crafted good. Please arrive promptly at 4pm and be ready to swap shortly thereafter (we generally start on time and things move quickly!). Please do not arrive early, as there are other events happening in the space that day. Lastly, feel free to bring samples of your goods for others to try.

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.

Registration is now open for the April 2013 Food Swap. Please fill out the form below if you would like to attend. We will send out a confirmation email within a week of your registration.

Thank you! - Lindsay,
