The Really Really Free Market for the month of December falls on December 25th, since that is the last Saturday of the month. At the November Really Really Free Market everyone talked it over and decided that yes, we would like to have the really really free market at the usual time, date, and place, despite it falling on a christian holiday.
In fact it seems like it could be a nice opportunity to being together folks who are not interested in celebrating Christmas, for whatever reasons- personal, political, religious, etc. We can do something fun and positive on that day, but something which clearly is not about celebrating Christmas.
Since many stores and restaurants will be closed because of the holiday, we are also encouraging people to treat this like a potluck- bring a dish to share if you can, preferabbly something labeled so folks with specific dietary needs or allergies can participate too! If you can’t come but want to contribute a dish please contact the Wingnut.
Please help make fliers, distribute handbills, and post online to advertise for the next Really Really Free Market!

The Really Really Free Market takes place on the last Saturday of every month in Monroe Park, at the corner of Main and Laurel Streets in Richmond, Virginia.
The RVA Really Really Free Markets provide people with a chance to share the excess that they possess, to prevent the landfills from filling with stuff that will never decompose and is nowhere near the end of its usefulness, and to offer the community a chance to come together for a day of free fun in the sun! (or rain!)
People can come to share things besides the physical. Anyone interested in sharing their skills or knowledge through a workshop should let us know or just show up and teach others. Anyone interested in performing, music or reading poetry or whatever, should contact us or just show up.
So dig through your closets, take the extra from your work, ask your parents and friends and neighbors to come to bring stuff and come to get stuff. Bring clothes, furniture, food, tapes, cds, office supplies, kitchen stuff, knick knacks, paddy whacks, etc. Any stores, restaurants, or organizations are welcome to bring their surplus items or food to share with the community!
The Really Really Free Market is not about bartering, selling, or discounting. All items are 110% free. No one has to bring something to get something. Everyone can take what they would like regardless of their contribution.
So the last Saturday of every month, bring your music, your skills, your stuff, your food, and your friends and family, and help us prove that there is enough stuff in the world for everybody!
Anything left at the end of the day will be taken to Diversity Thrift.
