REALLY REALLY FREE MARKET

DROP WHAT YOU DON’T WANT; TAKE WHAT YOU NEED!  EVERYTHING IS FREE!

 A Really Really Free Market (RRFM) is a giant flea market with no price tags. The purpose is to help people get rid of all the items they no longer want, use or need at one location.  RRFM visitors take those unwanted, unused items and re-use them. It’s a win-win!

This is our 4th year and the market has grown with each event. We have reorganized and our “dump and run” is still the one thing you can count on. Dump it all and turn away.  Leftover stuff is donated to local charities at the end of the day.

You don’t have to drop to shop.  Any reason to freecycle is a good reason. We include  everybody. It’s not charity; it’s redirection of  stuff to people who will use. It may be someone who needs it badly; someone who up-cycles; or just someone who wants it and will use it until it’s ready for the landfill or recycling.

Delaying recycling is a positive way to reduce impact on the environment, and any reason is a good reason to freecycle.

This year our event will include Vanier Street Cats Pop Cans for Pets. Your pop cans will help a pet see a vet. Bring any pop cans, scrap or eWaste to donate to the pet project that pays vet fees for low/fixed income owned pets.

    I think this is fantastic. In Germany they used to have a drop off at the curb system once every 3 months, supposedly for larger items. However, there were also plenty of people looking to see if they could use any of the unwanted stuff (would have been picked up for the tip!), including large vehicles from across the borders. A super way to clear out your house and recycle the items.
