Imagine a cashless exchange of your homemade and homegrown items for someone else's. The City of Federal Way is hosting a new series of trade/barter events starting on Sunday, March 15, 1-3 PM, at City Hall, 33325 8th Ave S, Federal Way.
Common items to bring to events include baked goods, homegrown produce/herbs, plants/seeds, jams/jellies, jewelry, soap, honey, eggs, knitted items, artwork or anything homemade. Residents can bring as little or as much as they want, or just come watch.
Bartering is easy; just ask just ask someone to trade what you have for something they have. For example, you could ask someone to trade your loaf of homemade bread for their jar of pickles. You determine the value of your items and can discuss and negotiate so it is fair. You don’t have to take every offer.
Set up is at 1 PM, followed by time to browse items and meeting people. Trading begins at 2 PM and people can leave when finished. The City will provide the tables, chairs and facilitation.
