Boston Food Swap Invites Cooks and Growers to Exchange Goods


The free, monthly Boston Food Swap comes to Space With a Soul, in Boston, to build community through creative and sustainable food. The July swap will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. on July 15.

Local cooks and growers are invited to bring extra homemade and homegrown food to trade.

“For people who want wholesome home cooking and food variety, this is a recurring, fun event where they can exchange ideas and learn new skills from other cooks,” says President Lyn Huckabee. “It’s part silent auction, part village marketplace and part fun-loving open house where homemade, homegrown and foraged creations become personal currency for use in swapping with other participants.”

Participants are asked to bring homemade and homegrown items, such as baked goods, jam, pickles, spreads, honey, vinegar, granola, pasta, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, homemade sausage and backyard eggs. Those who can are encouraged to bring samples for others to try. Huckabee says she hopes the swap can spread to other neighborhoods in and around Boston and she welcomes hearing from those interested in starting a swap in their neighborhood.

Location: Space With a Soul, 281 Summer St., 5th Fl., Boston. For more information, visit
