I'm so pleased to announce that our 2nd official Queens Swap, food swapping event is totally on. Riding on the coat tails of the first successful event back in May, this second iteration of an urban food barter concept will raise the bar yet again.
For starters, we have a new fabulous organizer, AJ from Handjobs for the Home blog, joining us. We loved AJ's contributions so much from the last swap, and he's been such a part of our blogger family (both at the Fooditka and We Heart Astoria) that it felt only natural to extend the olive branch. More than happy to accept, AJ has already made his mark on this program by suggesting a fantastic new venue and cooking up additional great ideas to make this swap even better than the last.
Here are all the pertinent deets of the swap, as well as the most important part - where to RSVP.
2nd Queens Swap - Saturday, September 17th from 4:00 - 6:30 p.m.
Fresh Start Market - 29-13 23rd Avenue, Astoria
In the spirit of enjoying the great outdoors, the swap will take place in Fresh Start's lovely outdoor patio space and will be limited to 20 ambitious swappers. So whether you've attended the last swap or are a newbie, I encourage you to take a look at our swapping tips page, which will help guide you.
If you'd like to swap with us this month, please RSVP here - there are only 9 spots left so don't wait, just go for it!
