Our market is run on volunteer power only!

Its continuation through all seasons is dependent on a solid base of volunteers, for organizing, for the day of the market, and for post-market driving leftovers to charities.



We are in need of more volunteers for our September 3rd market. Can you make it for a couple of hours, anytime between 8 am to 5 pm? -- We especially need more volunteers between 9:30 am to 2 pm. -- but if those hours do not work, we would really appreciate your help at set up and take down.

Volunteering at the Really Really Free Market is fun! You get to take lots of free stuff, too!

Please email rrfmarket@gmail.com if you're interested! Thank you.

New limit on shopping with a super-sturdy bag!

Some of you who came to the last market might remember our conversations about a new limit. Based on the positive feedback we received, as of July 2nd, 2016, we are changing the shopping limit to 1 (one) IKEA bag per person, and 2 (two) IKEA bags for whole family.

Which IKEA bag, I hear you ask! There are so many!
This one:

We expect that the smaller limit will encourage some people to be more restrained in their shopping, allowing everyone equal access to new items. Remember, a Really Really Free Market is all about sharing.

If you have one of these, or a small size shopping cart, we prefer you use those. If not, you can check in with us regarding the size of the shopping container you have brought with you.

Happy shopping!

June 4th Market Reflections

Thank you to everyone who made it out to our June 4th RRFM at Campbell Park!
We enjoyed our first market of the year outdoors, under a canopy of trees.  It was great to see so many new faces as well as returning ones!  Lots of interesting objects and clothes appeared throughout the day and most items found a new home by closing time. Yay!
You can check out some photos from our June market on our Facebook page.

Our next market will take place on July 2nd.  A **reminder** that we would like to begin our new ‘shopping’ guideline then. Thank you for helping us create and maintain community. 


We are always looking for volunteers to help at the market and behind the scenes organizing it!  Please email rrfmarket@gmail.com if you are interested.

New Shopping Guideline

Dear market visitors,

The one-shopping cart per person limit we put in place last summer has been mostly very successful! A shopping cart-ful is often more than most of our visitors want from the market.  Unfortunately, this guideline has not worked for everyone and we’ve received complaints about "inconsiderate" and "greedy” shopping practices.

Beginning at our July Market, we are going to change the limit in hopes to remedy this situation. Presently we are thinking of providing each visitor with a large bag that they can fill up and return to us when they are finished at the market.

We welcome feedback (preferably constructive ones) on this matter.  Please also tell us why *you* come to the market. If you like to take more than a cartful of stuff, please tell us your reasons. We're listening!

You can reach out to us at rrfmarket@gmail.com or in-person at the June 4th market.

Thank you for your continuing efforts at community building!
With love,
Campbell Park RRFM Team
