We’ve always been told, “Nothing in life is free.” In our vision of society, EVERYTHING IS FREE!
Have you ever brought one dish to a potluck and gone away with a full belly and a balanced meal? Everyone brings something and goes away with more. We all have skills, ideas, objects, smiles, talents, friendship, excitement, discussions, and many other things to share.
If we bring them together at the Really Really Free Market, we can provide more balanced and full lives for us all.
The RRFM is an alternative to the capitalist free market, which isn’t free at all. The RRFM is based on the gift economy—where goods, services, food, skills, talents, discussions, workshops, and many other things that would benefit the community are free to take and give away.
The RRFM is not just a means of getting things without paying. Participation in the RRFM helps build real community values, demonstrates an alternative to the current system of greed, commodification, competition, and exploitation, and helps dispel the Spectacular programming that comes from living in a capitalist society.
What can I bring? Anything you’d like to give. From clothes that no longer fit to food, books, stories, crafts, services, performances, music, a skill you’d like to share, or anything else that you think would benefit the community.
Don’t have anything to give away? Don’t worry; no exchange is necessary to participate. Please come out and take anything you like. It’s FREE!
The RRFM is a strictly anti-capitalist event, so please leave your business cards at home. This event is not the proper place for advertising or promoting a business.
The RRFM is organized on anarchist principles of mutual-aid, cooperation, and voluntary association. It is a decentralized, non-hierarchical, alternative to the market economy, with one rule...share and share alike. Another world is possible, but only if you want it!
