We’re having a pop-up food swap at Dugger Family Farm Fest on October 22nd, and we’re excited out of our gourds!

Join us at the beautiful Dugger property to hang out with goats, chickens, alpacas, cats, dogs, and a few humans. In addition to the Indy Food Swap, Blue River Carriage Company will offer carriage and pony rides, and Homespun: Modern Handmade will be on-site selling some of their favorite contemporary handmade and locally crafted goods. There will also be coffee, donuts, apple cider, and pumpkins galore. The Fall Fest is a free event, and runs from noon to 6:00pm. Dugger Family Farm is in Morristown (6559 E. 1200 N.), about 45 minutes east of the heart of downtown Indianapolis.

The food swap will be at our usual time, from 2:30-4:00pm, and will follow regular protocol: tickets are free, but spaces are limited and advance registration is required. Registration will open on Wednesday, September 28th at 7:00am. Bookmark the Eventbrite registration link here, and be ready to grab your spot right away.

Just bring your swap goods to the event. Everything else will be there as usual, including tables, bid sheets, etc. We also encourage you to bring friends and family along for the event. My kids already have big plans to buddy up to the farm critters.

Never been to a food swap? Don’t worry. Our events are always a great mix of veterans and newbies. You can visit our Frequently Asked Questions page to get more details about how swapping works, and if you still have questions, feel free to call or email me. I’m happy to help.

We are thrilled to work with Sherri Lynn Dugger on this event, who is doing incredible work in the food community through the publication of Farm Indiana, and the recently-launched Dugger Family Farm Store, where you’ll find everything from seasonal local produce and meats, to artisan food products and home decor items. This whole Fall Festival/Pop-Up extravaganza is her brainchild, and we couldn’t be happier to participate.

Hope to see you on October 22nd!
