About Really Really Free Markets
At a Really Really Free Market EVERYTHING is free! Bring what you can, take what you need and at the end of the day the left-overs will be donated appropriately. The more we can provide for one another locally, the closer we are to sustainability!
What to bring:
- Food and Produce: veggies, teas, baked goods, jams, tofu, etc.
- Body Care: tinctures, soaps, etc.
- Handmade Crafts: ceramics, candles, art, etc.
- Stuff: electronics, housewares, tools, books, etc.
- Services: massage, bike repair, web design, accounting, shoveling, moving, etc.
- Space: housing, working, gardening, etc. + you can offer to host our next event!
- Bags, boxes and carts to take stuff home in
- Our goal is sustainability – please bring stuff that is locally-grown or made from local materials if possible, but everything is welcome!
- Be prepared to take back home with you left-over items that are over-sized.
- Please bring stuff that is in good condition or can be easily-repaired – no junk!
More on Really Really Free Markets from Wikipedia:
“The Really Really Free Market (RRFM) movement is a non-hierarchical collective of individuals who form a temporary market based on an alternative gift economy. The RRFM movement aims to counteract capitalism in a non-reactionary way. It holds as a major goal to build a community based on sharing resources, caring for one another and improving the collective lives of all. Markets often vary in character, but they generally offer both goods and services. Participants bring unneeded items, food, skills and talents such as entertainment or haircuts. A RRFM may take place in an open community space such as a public park or community commons.”
