Be a part of Slow Food Urban San Diego’s First Community Food Swap!



Join us on Sunday June 12th at 12 PM @  The Linkery in North Park.  

Share your homemade and homegrown foodstuffs with other swappers. 


Bring your homemade jams, pickles, breads, crackers, world famous brownies, homegrown fruits, herbs or veggies to swap. Food swaps are gaining popularity across the country, as people reclaim a DIY lifestyle and want to share their incredible creations with their community. 


Come celebrate the amazing skills and creativity of your fellow San Diegans and take home some delicious treats in exchange for your own. Swapping takes place silent auction style, but there will be plenty of time to mingle with the other swappers and sample their wares.



Please see the attached participation agreement for details on what to bring and how the swap works.

On Thursday, June 9, Alchemy restaurant in South Park will host an artist’s reception for local chef and artist Melissa Mayer, whose AGRI*PLANET show was created in collaboration with  Grass Fed Beef Week.

The 411:

Opening Reception: “AGRI*PLANET” @ Alchemy June 9th from 6pm-10pm

AGRI*PLANET is a suggestive, provocative and often irony-laden series of work within multiple mediums that is a social commentary on the state of our food culture and the food industry.  The artist’s reception will include temporary installations and the remaining works within the show will be on view @ Alchemy into early July, 2011.

10% of the proceeds from the sales of the artwork in this collection will benefit Slow Food Urban San Diego, a 100% grassroots organization supporting and promoting food that is good, clean and fair.

    A presentation by chef and filmmaker Jessica Theroux based on her book titled Cooking with Italian Grandmothers will be followed by her short documentary film In Pignata: Calabrian Fireside Cooking and director Ermanno Olmi‘s 2009 film Rupi del vino (Wine’s Stones).

    THE 411:  

    May 21st 


    The Birch North Park Theater

    Tickets: $18 available online or at the event

    In Pignata tells the story of fiercely proud Carluccia Colace, a farmer who at 80 still produces almost all the food her family needs, and who maintains the food traditions at the center of her culture.

    Rupi del vino presents a lush and almost mesmerizing progression of the seasons in northern Italy as these farmers carve mountain stone to make room for their vines and the drywall terraces staggered into the flanks of the Alps.
