First Ever Queens Swap is on May 22nd
I'm very excited to announce that Queens Swap, Queens' first food swap that I mentioned a few weeks ago is officially happening. Taking place on May 22nd at the new, cool Queens Kickshaw, the event will unite passionate foodies who have a penchant for natural, interesting, homemade and homegrown foods.
The event is free to the public, but we're limiting it to 20 people, at least for the first one. My lovely colleagues, Meg and Charlene have kindly set up an Eventbrite invite, so if you're interested, please sign up here.
Event details include:
Inaugural Queens Swap Event: Sunday, May 22nd, 2011 from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m.
The Queens Kickshaw - 40-17 Broadway, Astoria NY 11103. 718.777.0913
Queens Swap is a bi-monthly event that brings together passionate food enthusiasts, bakers, cooks, foragers to barter (or swap) quality, homemade foods.
Swapping at Queens Swap is free, but we're limiting it to 20 swappers for the first swap. If you can't get in, don't worry. We'll be having another swap in July! Queens Kickshaw normally closes at 4:30 p.m., but they're staying open later to host our event, so we encourage you to patronize them by purchasing coffee, sandwiches and other tasty items you spy on the menu. We happen to love the GOUDA sandwich!
You can swap anything you want, but it must be made, grown, or foraged by you, personally. Product must packaged in some way - in cans, jars, paper bags or baggies, etc. This is because we need to comply with NYC health codes that prohibit "foods to be consumed on premises" brought in from outside the establishment. This means samples are also off-limits.
