New Shopping Guideline

Dear market visitors,

The one-shopping cart per person limit we put in place last summer has been mostly very successful! A shopping cart-ful is often more than most of our visitors want from the market.  Unfortunately, this guideline has not worked for everyone and we’ve received complaints about "inconsiderate" and "greedy” shopping practices.

Beginning at our July Market, we are going to change the limit in hopes to remedy this situation. Presently we are thinking of providing each visitor with a large bag that they can fill up and return to us when they are finished at the market.

We welcome feedback (preferably constructive ones) on this matter.  Please also tell us why *you* come to the market. If you like to take more than a cartful of stuff, please tell us your reasons. We're listening!

You can reach out to us at or in-person at the June 4th market.

Thank you for your continuing efforts at community building!
With love,
Campbell Park RRFM Team

June 4th RRFM is around the corner!

Summer has finally arrived and we are looking forward to our next market on Saturday, June 4th, 10am–4pm, at Campbell Park. Weather permitting, we hope to enjoy a day of community exchange outdoors! 

Please read the side panel of this blog to learn more about what a Really Really Free Market is, How It Works, and some Wish List items we are currently looking for.  

In addition, here are a few friendly reminders: 
- we cannot accept large items unless you leave your contact info and are available to pick them up at the end of the day if they are leftover
- you do not have to bring anything
- if you bring items, please do so before 3pm
- please remember the "shopping cart" guideline for collecting materials

We are always looking for new volunteers to assist with organizational and/or day-of market tasks. Feel free to email us at if you are interested or have any other questions about the market. 

We hope to see you on June 4th!
