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.
