We are in the process of transferring the hosting and maintenance responsibilities of the wiki from Chucklefish to ConcernedApe, which is why the wiki will temporarily be hosted at stardewcommunitywiki.com. Soon the official wiki will resume at stardewvalleywiki.com and will be hosted going forward by ConcernedApe. Prior to the transfer to ConcernedApe we will update this site with the date on which the transfer will occur.
The Witch's Swamp is an underground location that becomes accessible after completing the "Dark Talisman" Quest. The cave which leads to the swamp is located in the northeast part of the Railroad area. Found within the Witch's Swamp protected by a Henchman is the Witch's Hut.
The questline to access the Witch's Hut involves two quests, which become available after completing the Community Center Bundles or the Joja Community Development Form. The player can trigger a cut scene at the Railroad, where the Wizard will request they find a Dark Talisman, which can be found in a chest within the Mutant Bug Lair. The Mutant Bug Lair can be accessed by speaking to Krobus, who will reveal the entrance in the Sewers. After obtaining the Talisman, bring it back to the Railroad area and place it on the artifact blocking the cave. Inside the cave is a teleportation rune which leads to the Witch's Swamp.
Once inside the Witch's Swamp, the Witch's Henchman will be blocking the way to the Witch's Hut. As hinted by the Lost Book Goblins, the Henchman can be bribed into letting the player pass using Void Mayonnaise, completing the quest Goblin Problem. Recover the Magic Ink inside the Witch's Hut, then bring the ink back to the Wizard, who will unlock five Wizard buildings for The Farm.

Two unique items can be caught by fishing in the Witch's Swamp: Void Salmon and Void Mayonnaise. Catfish, Green Algae, and White Algae are also possible. The available fish are the same year-round, even though Catfish is normally unavailable during summer.
There is a 25% chance of catching a Void Mayonnaise, but only if the "Goblin Problem" quest is active and the player does not have any Void Mayonnaise in their inventory.
|Catfish||Rainy day only|
- Void Mayonnaise (item ID 308) is added to the fishing list by custom code in GameLocation::getFish.
