Dolores Park, SF (20th & Dolores)
Everything is free. yes, really really free. no money, no bartering, no advertising.
Bring food, art, games, furniture, friends, not-so-random acts of kindness, bike parts/tools, face paints, plants, books, skills….anything!
A Really Really Free market is like a giant potluck made up of useable items, skills, ideas, smiles, talents, friendship, discussions and many other things that we can come together and share.
As a community we have many more resources than we do as individuals. If we share our resources we won't need to buy as many new ones. This uses fewer of the Earth's resources and fewer of our working hours, leaving us more time to devote to ourselves and our communities.
Would we all work forty hours a week if we didn't feel we had to? What if instead we worked at improving our individual skills and talents and shared them with each other? We would all spend more time doing things we enjoyed.
Bring a blanket, bring things to put on the blanket, sit on someone else’s blanket, play in the grass and live, for a few hours, outside of capitalism.
Please help us keep the Really Really Free Market a 100% FREE and non-commercial event. Once a month, let's come together and forget about trading, bartering and money. Leave the business cards at home and remember the joy of giving for the sake of giving.
Help us keep Dolores Park clean. If no one takes what you brought, please bring it home with you or HELP US bring it to Community Thrift for donation.
A RRFM is a participant-organized event. It is comprised of what YOU make of it. Get involved. If you want to help organize or bring skills or just have questions, please contact us at reallyreallyfreemarket [at] mutualaid [dot] org or just show up. If you live outside San Francisco, start one where you are! This is a growing movement and you're part of it!
Because there's enough for everyone.
Because sharing is more fulfilling than owning.
Because corporations would rather see landfills overflow than anyone get anything for free.
Because scarcity is a myth constructed to keep us at the mercy of the economy.
Because a sunny day outside is better than anything money can buy.
Because "free trade" is a contradiction of terms.
Because no one should have to do without food, shelter, entertainment, and community.
Because life should be a picnic, but it only will be if we make it happen.
