Our last market was very good, I hope you all had fun like we did, we can't wait to have our next Market.
We are looking for more Organising and Market Volunteers. Our Market volunteers help us during the market like setting up, finishing up and helping around during the market and you can pick your shifts and if you want to stay for the whole day then that's awesome. With our Organising volunteers, they help us with organising the market for eg. social media, transportation, answering queries related to market etc.
We are promoting an impartial draw for our new volunteers, "2 Cineplex Adult Admit Ones, good for general admission at any Cineplex theatre in Canada. Also valid for scene points towards free movies, food and drinks."
So come on board. Everyone in a market group is very friendly and accepting. We all would love to have you on our team.
We're happy to say that the Really Really Free Market is on track to open this coming Saturday February 4, 2017 at Campbell Park! FREE LEGAL ADVICE ON FEB 4:
For our past Market goers, you may remember our Mr. A Daramola, who is a licensed paralegal, and has been so kind to lend his services over the years. We are delighted to announce his return this coming Saturday! If you're interested in his advice, please take the following points into consideration:
Free legal advice by legal professional, 11am-4pm
No appointment necessary
Must bring documents if there are any
Check with info desk to put your name on list
Anyone in crisis will be given priority
Consultation will take place in the same space as the Market
RRFM will be held inside Campbell Park Community Centre on 225 Campbell Ave, North of Wallace Ave and South of Antler St.
Sharing the space with hockey equipment, Campbell Park Community Centre is limited in space, so limit your time to 1 hour
You DON'T have to bring anything to participate in our Market - it's completely FREE
If you do bring items to share, bring them before 3pm and make sure it's in clean & working condition (but please no big items)
During the Market (10am-3pm), the limit is 1 large sized IKEA bag per person, 2 bags for families of 3 or more people
The next three months, our usual indoor space will be split between the market and hockey players/equipment, so our space will be smaller.
Some of you might remember how crowded it was at the last market! To avoid that happening again, we will ask you to limit each visit to an hour,with some exceptions as below.
Since our average visitor only stays 15-20 minutes, an hour is more than sufficient time to fill your bag to the limit. (See limits below.) If after an hour it becomes quiet and you have not filled your bag yet, you're welcome to stay a little longer. Or you could leave when it is crowded and return later (nice coffee places in the area). We discourage anyone from staying at the market more than a couple of hours in total.
As always, at 3 o'clock,limits are off!After 3 pm you can take as much as you wish, extending your stay up to a total of 3 hours!
Before 3 pm limits are:
One large shopping bag (or half shopping cart) per person;
Two large shopping bags (or one shopping cart) per family.
We rely on your goodwill. We also want to enjoy yourselves, so we're not counting minutes or anything. If at any time, we find it crowded and breaking fire safety regulations (and the market code of respect that allows *everyone* a chance to enjoy the goodies at the market) a volunteer will make an announcement, asking for those who have been at the market for about an hour (or the longest, if the market has not been open for an hour) to leave and return later if they wish.
We're quickly approaching the start to a new month, and we're happy to announce that we will be returning on Dec 3rd inside Campbell Park Community Centre on 225 Campbell Ave, North of Wallace Ave and South of Antler St.
For the next 3 months, our indoor space will be split between the market and hockey equipment, so our space will be smaller. To avoid the crowding that we experienced last Market, we ask you to limit each visit to 1 hour. If after an hour it becomes quiet and you have not filled your bag yet, you're welcome to stay a little longer. Or you could leave when it is crowded and return later. We discourage anyone from staying at the market more than a couple of hours in total.
If you bring stuff, please make sure that everything you bring is clean and in working order.
There's a limit of 1 large sized IKEA bag for each individual; 2 bags for families of 3 or more people
After 3pm, you're welcome to take as much as you like
Each person is limited to 2 jewelry pieces. You can pick-up your jewellery tokens when you sign-in at the entrance
Anything remaining at the end of the Market will be donated to local charities. At this time, we're always looking for volunteer transporters to help deliver these items to various locations. So if you have a vehicle or bike, and can help, please contact us at email@example.com for more details.
Feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or in-person at our next Market.
With the weather getting a bit nippy, we have moved indoors to the Clubhouse again. If all goes well, and the volunteer commitment remains steady, we intend to continue through the winter.
When the hockey season starts it will affect the physical size of our market (December to April markets), so keep that in mind when you are trying to decide what kind of carrier to bring with you. Too many shopping carts can clog up a small area. We hope that only people with physical challenges will bring carts, and that the rest with suffice with backpacks or shopping bags.
