An FSC food swap at a Greenmarket?

Why yes we did!

…and boy was it fun!

Thank you to Swappers and Schenectady Greenmarket Board Members Jennifer, Julie & Wendy (who is also a FSC Contributor) for making the swap happen with their tireless planning before, after & during the swap.

Another big ‘thank you’ shout-out to  FSC Contributors Pirate Jeni & Lauren and FSC Swapper Linda for helping during the swap, as they had the job of answering various questions from very swap-curious Greenmarket customers.

What made this swap really special, besides being at a Greenmarket where swappers could shop & attend a sway without leaving the building was the fact that we allowed any ‘swap-curious’ Greenmarket customer to register for a ticket , so they could hope across the ropes and sample swap loot, ask questions and talk food!

We were in a Greenmarket vendor space next to the GE Theater.

As usual, the swap loot was carefully crafted and displayed.

Once all the swappers arrived, its was a backed house!
Thank you to all that made the 1st Schenectady Greenmarket Swap a success, including the amazing Greenmarket Board Members & the welcoming customers.

Lastly, thank you to Jennifer for taking pictures of the event, pictures 2-4 & 5-6.
