We're thrilled to announce the Eastside Food Swap, hosted by The Kings Roost with special guest, The True Spoon.
The Eastside food swap is a community event celebrating homemade, homegrown, and foraged foods. This event aims to bring cooks, bakers, gardeners, and foragers together to swap their edible creations, share stories, and develop new friendships.
This event is open to anyone who pre-registers through The King's Roost (in store or online) The only other requirement is that you bring something you made, grew, or foraged yourself. If you're bringing kids, please plan to supervise them. There is a $10 fee to participate.
Most importantly you’ll be bringing food to swap. All swap items must be homemade, homegrown, or foraged by you. Think preserves, baked goods, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, condiments, marinades, and beverages. You can bring a bunch of one thing or multiples of a few different things; 10-20 swap items are suggested (bring as many as you may want to trade for and bring home). Keep in mind that swappers will be examining and picking up your goods, so be sure to package them in a way that protects the food and makes it clear the amounts you want to swap. When applicable, it is recommended that you include food allergy information. If your food swap item is delicious, let it be known by providing samples to the other swappers. Since swappers will be trading at will, attractive presentation and cute packaging is a great idea to make your products visually appealing.
All swap participants adhere to an honor code; they agree to using the highest cleanliness standards in their own kitchens and gardens to prepare their swap items.
Swap participants also must agree to the following terms before registering for the Eastside Swap. By participating in these events, you are acknowledging that the food items being traded are not necessarily prepared in commercial kitchens or spaces inspected by any Government agency. By participating in these events, you are also acknowledging that you will use the highest standards of safety and cleanliness in food preparation.
By participating in these events, you assume all liability; specifically, you agree to not hold liable food swap hosts, swap venue owners/providers or other swap participants.
