The Chicago Food Swap went from Twitter, to email, and finally to real life collaboration between Chicago food bloggers Emily and Vanessa.

We've held swaps at like-minded businesses throughout the Chicago area, including Pretty Little Things, an alternative craft boutique in Forest Park, Savory Spice Shop in Hinsdale, and Green Home Experts in Oak Park and has migrated to other businesses with missions consistent with the food swap philosophy in other parts of Chicago every other month.

If you have the hunger to host one of our upcoming Chicago Food Swaps in your neck of the woods, please email Emily  at westoftheloop at
