Local women entrepreneurs with support from Blue Sky Center will host their second Cuyama Swap Meet, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. March 15 at 4845 Primero St., New Cuyama, just right off Hwy. 166.
In fall 2019, three local women took a leap forward to identify a tangible project in the community that celebrates the abundance of local craftsmanship in the Cuyama Valley. In the first Cuyama Swap Meet, more than 130 visitors came to support local entrepreneurs.
Cuyama Swap is planned by and for community entrepreneurs to sell their goods, crafts and products, and highlight the skills abundant in this high-desert region. This spring, a new spot has been secured for vendors to show off their products and services.
The upcoming swap meet will include 16 local vendors ranging from Western jewelry, cowboy saddles, artisanal crafts and apparel to homemade cosmetics and food products made in the Cuyama Valley.
La Cocina Cuyama, a mobile community commercial kitchen, will be serving fresh Mexican dishes in support of the Cuyama High School FFA (Future Farmers of America) group.
Blue Sky Center is a rural, place-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to strengthen rural communities in the Cuyama Valley by supporting entrepreneurs and building regional creative and economic resources.
