Volunteer with Us

We are often asked, "Who are you?"  We're simply people interested in waste reduction, reuse, connecting people, and sharing.  We're not employed by the City, the Park, or anyone.  The Really Really Free Market happens every month because a few people volunteer their time and enthusiasm.

If you'd like to work with us, feel free to e-mail us at rrfmarket@gmail.com.  Some areas we regularly need help in are:
  • Letting others know about market
  • Setting up market (tables, shelves, signs, etc.) 
  • Being at the market to orient people and keep materials organized
  • Folding and putting away tables, chairs, signs, etc. when the market is over
  • Packing up end-of day leftovers for donation sites 
  • Delivering end-of-day leftovers to donation sites
We have regular meetings during the month that you're welcome to attend.  Email us for the times and locations.

Another way to support the RRFM is to tell all the people you know and meet.  You can put a flyer in your office, by your window, or at your favourite restaurant, cafe, or laundro-mat.  The posters on this blog are printable and e-mailable.  You're also welcome to make your own!

We hope to see you at the next RRFM or at our meetings.

Someone asked about what happens to market left-overs.  You don't have to take your things back; we will donate items to appropriate organizations.  We have chosen organizations that won't sell or profit from these items, thereby continuing the spirit of generosity, reuse, and sharing.  These are the places we've chosen:

Sistering: clothes, craft supplies, office supplies, unopened/unused toiletries
Free Geek: electronics
ARTSJUNKTION: the really random items
The Redwood: unopened/unused toiletries, new/gently used linens, new/gently used cutlery
*If you know of a place that will accept items and use them for non-proprietary purposes, feel free to post suggestions in our 'comments' section or e-mail us.
