Really Really Free Markets

If Republicans really love the wisdom of the free market so much, how come they keep on spending so much money for stuff?

For the people who organize the Really Really Free Market, that’s not a rhetorical question. The market is a place where people bring stuff on the last Saturday of every month, give it away, and find what they need in return. It’s held in Dolores Park near 19th Street and Dolores Street in San Francisco.

“A Really Really Free Market is like a potluck for whatever you want to give or take away. Have you ever brought one dish to a potluck and gone away with a full belly and a balanced meal? Everybody brings something and goes away with more.

We all have skills, ideas, objects, smiles, talents, friendship, excitement, discussions, and many other things to share. If we bring them all together at the Really Really Free Market, we can provide more balanced and full lives for everyone.”

Don’t live near San Francisco? Don’t fret. There are Really Really Free Markets being organized all around the country. There’s one that’s been started up in Ithaca, New York, for example.
