Central OC Food Swap Hooray for Fall Edition!

***Event Closed

September 20, 2015 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm | Free

Join us for an edible afternoon of swapping homemade delights in the heart of Orange County!

A Food Swap is part silent auction/part village marketplace/part fun-loving open house where your homemade creations (breads, preserves, special concoctions, canned goods, etc.) become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants. What better way to diversify your pantry and network with like-minded friends and neighbors?


Bring an assortment of your homemade edible specialties (think pickles, preserves, baked goods, honey, granola, pasta, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices… you name it!) to exchange for other handcrafted delights.

We welcome everyone, as long as you bring something you made, grew, or foraged yourself. We will also consider other homemade non-comestibles (soaps, beauty products, etc) on a case-by-case basis.

You may download your swap cards here and fill them out in advance, or you may pick some up from the Central OC Food Swap upon arrival.  COCFS Swap Card
