Pictures from the June market

The June market was a rousing success! We didn't keep an official tally but it seemed like hundreds of people came to check out our return!

No doubt the nice weather contributed to the large number of attendees.

Women's clothes are one of our fastest-moving sections.

 We even had a separate rack just for women's clothes. This is one of the new racks we've obtained.

Health and beauty products were on this table.

Campbell Avenue Park also has a series of large rocks with flat surfaces that we use as tables. 
 We ask that all attendees at the market follow this code of conduct.

We had a number of plants at the market. Hopefully we'll have more over the summer.

Food Not Bombs will not be serving food

Yesterday, RRFM received an email stating that, "Unfortunately RRFM or any group of volunteers you are bringing in under your banner are not allowed to serve food at tomorrow's market. The serving of food falls under public health, and this is too short notice to ensure proper food handling will be adhered to. If you would like food to be served at future markets we can set up a time to meet with RRFM & Food Not Bombs.
Prior to meeting we would need an outline on how RRFM intends to adhere to public health requirements for a temporary food operations. Please keep in mind that the kitchen would be off limits, as it would be in use. These are the requirements that RRFM would need to adhere to and the package to fill out prior to sitting down for a meeting.
Hopefully this give you an idea of what is needed in advance of getting the ok to serve food.
All the best tomorrow and we'll see you soon."

Food Not Bombs will not be at the park giving out food as part of the Really Really Free Market.

Our contribution wish list

People have frequently asked to donate money to the Really Really Free Market. While we appreciate the sentiment behind the offers, the RRFM is a cashless enterprise and it would be against our attempts to promote a money-less "gifting" economy by accepting money. However, we do accept contribution of goods and services, and there are always things we need. If you are able to give us any of the following, we would be forever grateful.
In no particular order, here are some of the things we would appreciate:
1) Tables with foldable or detachable legs
2) A slightly bigger bookcase
3) Large whiteboards for putting up signs
4) More volunteers!
This list will become a permanent part of the sidebar to the right, and will be updated if and when we receive the items or we think of more stuff. Please contact us at if you are willing to donate anything on the list.
