Really Really Free Market
February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Tasmania’s most generous market is back just in time for a Christmas Cleanout!
Give your things away to someone who needs them. Find yourself a treasure. It’s all Really Really Free at Tassie’s most generous market.
The Really Really Free Market (RRFM) is a community gathering based on the concept of giving. It is a demonstration of building community based on sharing resources, abundance, reuse, recycling, caring for one another and improving the collective lives of all.
Everything is 100% free! By booking a table, you will receive a 2m x 2m space for your activity, trestle table and chair. Council reserves the right to refuse a site to items deemed inappropriate. You will need to take home or donate anything that hasn’t been given away at the end of the event.
Come and share your stuff (books, CDs, toys, clothes, food, excess produce, plant cuttings, seeds etc) or skills (massage, reflexology, poetry writing, singing, repairing things etc) by giving them to others who need them.
By sharing, we are reducing consumption and waste of our natural resources, re-using what we don’t need by passing it on, and most importantly, showing everyone that there are more sustainable and generous ways to live.
If you are preparing food to give away, please ensure that you practice good personal hygiene (wash hands, cover wounds etc), use clean food preparation areas/utensils and store food appropriately.
Please serve food yourself using gloved hand or utensil rather than allow people to pick up the food themselves.
