The second Bayview RRFM is happening on Saturday March 14th! The first one was lots of fun. Despite soggy weather, there was yummy food, interesting conversation, games, and really really good & free Valentines day cheer!

The Bayview RRFM happens on the Second Saturday of the month in India Basin Shoreline Park, San Francisco, from noon to 4pm.



About the RRFM:

Because there is enough for everyone

Because sharing is more fufilling 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



Have you ever picked up something you found on the sidewalk? Or saved your
neighbor from throwing away something useful?

A Really Really Free Market is like a potluck for whatever you want to give or
take away. Have you ever brought one dish to a potluck and gone away with a
full belly and a balanced meal? Everybody 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 all together at
the Really Really Free Market, we can provide more balanced and full lives for
everyone.

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 at one job 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.

The Really Really Free Market is an attempt to put these ideas into practice
for four hours every month.

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 the parks clean. If no one takes what you brought, please bring it
home with you.
