Owen Sound's first food swap will be held Sunday, May 24 at the Owen Sound Farmers' Market.

In essence, a food swap is a free community event where participants bring homemade, homegrown or foraged foods - things like rhubarb, jam, lettuce, granola, bread, or pickles- and swap their goods with other participants. Everyone is guaranteed to leave with a bounty of delicious foods to try and perhaps make new, like-minded foodie friends, too. 

One of the organizers, Melissa Monk, explained her enthusiasm, “Food swaps have been gaining in popularity for a few years, spurred on by media like this New York Times article and have become a bit of a mainstay in the urban eat-local scene. The entire concept seemed like a great fit for our town.”

The first event is going to be held at the Owen Sound Farmers' Market on Sunday, May 24th from 1-3 PM.

More information is on the website or Facebook page and people can sign up for the event for free here.
