Dear market-goers and volunteers,

In order to improve the Really Really Free Market at Campbell Park, we have decided to postpone the monthly market until we come up with and put into effect an action plan. We are most likely to resume in spring 2015.

The areas that we plan to focus on most are:

(1)  Volunteer involvement at the organizational level and at the market;
(2)  Effective and reliable means of transporting market leftovers to charities, etc.;
(3)  Guidelines to spread the sharing and co-operation spirit to the few individuals who continue to engage with the market in a competitive mind-set.

We welcome suggestions as we have in the past--in keeping with the principle that a Really Really Free Market involves no money and no swapping. We encourage and would love to have those of you who are available to become involved in the market in order to hasten bringing back the market as soon as possible.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.

We will miss you all until we see you again. Thank you for making the market the success that it has been for over two years, 26 markets!

Here's to a new and improved Really Really Free Market at the park!

If you would like to hear from us when the market resumes, just send a short message to And don't forget, we always need lots of volunteers! Volunteering is fun, and you can take anything from the market, just like everyone else. If you want to get involved with RRFM, either at the organizing stage, or at the market itself (of both!) drop us your name. Another thing we need help with is taking the leftovers to charities at the end of the market!
