Swap Meet for Pickles, Preserves, and Other Homemade Goodies
Punk Domestics & BCF Food Preservation Swap
Where: Blue Chair Fruit Kitchen, 4629 Martin Luther King Jr. (at 47th St.), Oakland; 510-654-BLUE
When: Fri., July 15, 6-8 p.m.
The rundown: On Friday, our very own Sean Timberlake (if he allows us to assert ownership) is staging a food swap for the DIY generation, in conjunction with the Blue Chair Fruit Kitchen. It's like one of those dreamy utopian sci-fi scenarios where we've abolished currency in favor of items bearing actual value: handcrafted foodstuffs. The price of admission is the (sometimes literal) fruits of your own labor. Sean suggests you barter "as the market bears," meaning that one slim bottle of your home-brewed kombucha might fetch a quart of pickled jalapenos. All manner of preserved foods are welcome; just leave your wallet in the car. But not, you know, in plain view.
