Proud of your homemade jam? Like to forage for local foods? Grow the best broccoli on the block?
Whatever your passion, share it with other food lovers at the next Portland Food Swap, which will be held at 5:30 p.m. July 18 at Rising Tide Brewery, 103 Fox St., Portland.
Bring homemade, homegrown, or locally foraged foods packaged in swappable containers. The organizers of the event ask that you bring four or more items to trade. They can all be the same thing, or a mix of items.
