Its a great opportunity for everyone to be adventurous and try new foods or drinks, and cash is strictly forbidden, she notes, adding that everything is based strictly on bartering, using bid sheets. Todays Mile High Swappers Food Swap starts trading at 11 a.m. at the West Washington Park Community Garden, 201 Grant Street. Those who want to participate are asked to bring a minimum of five portions of home-created goods; samples to share with the rest of the group are encouraged.
Homemade ice cream has been really popular, as have farm-fresh backyard eggs and we even had someone who shot his own elk and then made elk sausage to trade, says Orenstein. Admission is free, but the wheeling and dealing is limited to thirty people. For more information or to sign up, go to www.milehighswappers.com/Mile_High_Swappers/Events.html.
