ELLINGTON - In celebration of the Eighth Annual National Soup Swap Day, Ellington Farmers' Market will host a Soup Swap on Friday, Jan. 24, from 4 to 6 p.m., at the Winter Market. All you have to do is cook up a pot of your favorite soup and bring a quart - either fresh or frozen - to the market. Please put the name of your soup and a list of ingredients on the container. Quart deli containers or mason jars work well. Check out the other soups and swap it for one that strikes your fancy or you think will warm the depths of your winter soul. Your participation helps to create community by bringing people together through food, and could be the start of swappers continuing to gather beyond Soup Swap Day. Help spread the word about this fun event. Phone your friends and neighbors, send a few emails or tweets and join the swap. Believe in the masterpieces that everyday people can create; warm, tasty liquids on a freezing cold day; and the power of soup.
