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.

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
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.
