Kirke Park (7028 9th Ave NW) will play host to the first Small Batch Seattle Food and Goods Swap this Sunday, starting at 2 p.m.

Founded by a group of friends that wished they had more time to indulge in the homemade lifestyle, Small Batch Seattle brings local makers together to exchange goods, thereby creating a more sustainable, independent lifestyle

Attendees can bring as many or as few items as they want, packaged into portions of approximately $5-$10 amounts for easy swapping. These items can be anything homemade or homegrown, including baked goods, jams, fermented foods, natural sodas, yogurt, grown vegetables, soaps, etc. Organizers are encouraging attendees to bring ingredient lists, information on storage and shelf life, and samples of your items to try where practical.

Swappers are expected to adhere to the “Code of Conduct” listed on the Small Batch Seattle website:

  • By participating in this event, you are acknowledging that the food items being shared are not commercially prepared items. They are handmade goods not inspected by any government agency.
  • By participating in this event, you are acknowledging that you will use strict standards of cleanliness and safety when preparing any food items.
  • By participating in this event, you assume all liability; specifically, you agree to not hold liable food swap hosts, swap venue owners/providers, or other swap participants.

Only those that bring items to swap can participate. Preregistration is required for each participating attendee, as space is limited. The event is expected to last approximately two hours.

    Just returned from the Small Batch food swap at Kirke Park. What a wonderful exsperience.
    I traded for a great Limoncello, best ever even tops Limoncello tasted in Italy. The lemon ginger Darjling Kombucho hit the spot on this hot summer day. I love the fact she recycled spirit bottles. The rhubarb curd, I drizzled over ice cream topping off a rhubarb cobbler. It was delicious. My husband can’t wait to try the pickled carrots in a bloody Mary. and lastly I swapped for some intriguing home made orange bitters. I sadly only had 6 items to trade next time I am bring more. Just to give others an idea of the things I had to pass up included: fresh product, frozen pizza dough, lavender sachets, cards, sugar scrubs, fresh bread, tarts, chutneys, pickled beans, and mini Reiki sessions. I probably forgot some of the items but everything was tempting.
    Thanks for starting this.
