Are you looking for a way to connect with your local food community? Look no further than our monthly Food Swaps at the Mid-Columbia Market!

What’s a Food Swap?


A food swap is a great way to meet new people, try new foods, and connect with your local food community. At a food swap, you’ll spend time meeting other swappers, presenting your food items, and then trading with others. No one leaves empty-handed, and you’re guaranteed to make new friends and leave with new inspiration for your garden or kitchen!

It’s so easy to participate! Do you have way too much kale from your garden? Bring an extra bag to the swap! Want to make a double batch of your delicious sourdough bread? Bring a loaf to the swap! Have a bunch of blackberry jam from last summer? Bring a jar or two to the swap!

If you would like to join, but have any food sensitivity concerns, please join in! There will be plenty of time to talk with other swappers about their products and ingredients. Come share your creations, experience the variety of local foods grown in the Tri-Cities, and make new friends at a Food Swap!
