Really, Really, Free Market
Sat, May 14, 2011 10am
Park behind Pickney Elementary School on 6th St. · Cost: Free!
Apr 22, 2011

Bring items that you no longer want and take new treasures FOR FREE!

We are also looking for artists, face painters, performers, or anyone else that has a trade or skill they would like to share with others that day (get creative!)

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.[1] 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 usually takes place in an open community space such as a public park or community commons.

Whatever is not taken by 1:00pm is donated to Social Service League and Penn House. If you bring something really big, we ask that you stop by at 1:00 in case the item’s still there. We don’t have too many pickups to haul stuff away, so if you can help with this, we appreciate it.

Please pass the word around!
