Dear PoPville,

Just learned of the concept of a food swap from a friend in New Orleans. I have seen postings about a local market of homemade food businesses but this concept strictly involves bartering, no money exchanged. Do you know of anything like this in DC? With DC’s growing foodie community, seems like it’s an idea that could work here.

The Nola Food Swap explains:

Bring edibles made from scratch, by you, and trade them for other people’s homemade goods. Anything goes as long as it is made or grown by you, made from scratch, and hopefully delicious since you will be sharing your goods with others. Anything is swappable! Good choices are jams, pickles, bread, cheese, beer, wine, yogurt, granola, herbs, pestos, fresh veggies from your garden, etc. Get as creative as you’d like!

Anyone know of something like this? Think this could work in DC?
