At Semaphore: the Semaphore Fruit and Veg Swap

The Semaphore Fruit and Veg Swap happens on the last Saturday morning of every month, 10 to 11am in the Garden Cottage at Bower Cottages Community Centre, 200 Bower Road.  

Semaphore Fruit and Veg Swap Organically home grown produce can go on the tables from 10am, then take what you can use at 10:30am.  

Tea and coffee are available at no cost  if you would like to sit awhile and chat. 

If you know someone in this area, please let them know or bring them along. Even if you don’t have or don’t need any produce that weekend, please come along and support the Swap. 

More Swaps in more suburbs means more fresh, free, healthy food for everyone, as well as fewer food miles. Not only that, but a Swap engenders a great sense of community, and best of all it’s fun!

  8. Hi sue I went to the Feb swap at Semaphore. All being well in terms of the dreaded fruit fly there will be a March swap. My area {Largs Bay} so far hasn’t been effected so I expect to go to the swap in March. See you there. Helen

  9. Thanks Helen. I haven’t heard any more on the fruit fly outbreak in my area. They sprayed foliage but that was a few weeks back so I take it that it’s all clear now. Hope so anyway.

    Hi Anthea,
    Diggers club Adelaide Botanic garden . Its new this year supplies seeds tools and some potter plants.

  14. Hi everyone, Drew here wondering if the vegie swap is still happening in Semaphore. I went to the Harts Mill farmers market last week and hope it will grow! I think it is meant to be organic, but I found it hard to work out what was and what wasn’t organic. Hope more sellers start going, but I think it will only work if the prices are low enough and the stalls are free to set up. Time will tell.
