Dear Neighbor,

We are the Wingnut Anarchist Collective, and we wanted to get in touch about a program we are hoping to bring to Southern Barton Heights starting this Spring. The event we want to organize is called a Really Really Free Market. We have been involved in a Really Really Free Market that happens on a monthly basis in Monroe park for 3 years now. We have decided to focus more of our efforts on Southern Barton Heights, and want to try a Really Really Free Market here.

A Really Really Free Market (RRFM) is a community gathering where participants bring, and give away absolutely free, andy usuable items, skills, ideas, talents, friendship, excitement, discussion, games and many other things that we as a community can come together and share. A RRFM is a 100% free and non-commercial event, creating a gift economy as an alternative to the normal way of buying and selling.

Our plan is to have the first Southern Barton Heights Really Really Free Market on Saturday April 21st from 12 noon until 3pm in Yancey Street Park at the corner of Poe St. and North Ave. Earth Day is the following day, which makes it an extra approporiate day to encourage re-using and re-cycling of belongings instead of throwing away and buying new.

If this sounds like something you’d like to be involved with, we’d love to have your help.

– If you have any ideas for things you’d like to see at the Really Really Free Market, get in touch with us.

– Contribute something to the free market, spare stuff that you have around your house or work, some kind of entertainment, or a skill that you’d like to share with your community.

-Tell your friends about this thing, the more people who show up the better it’s gonna be.

Love,

The Wingnut

Local musician and activist Silver Persinger wrote an article after the August Really Really Free Market in Richmond. He came and performed his music with a portable amp. The Really Really Free Market is a monthly event on the last Saturday of every month in Monroe Park from 12-3 at the corner of Main and Laurel which provides an alternative to the capitalist market. Musicians, performers, non-profits, artists, etc. are invited to perform, play, share, teach, inform etc. every month. Everyone else is invited to bring stuff to give away, come get stuff, learn, listen, and engage with your community!

Here is the article, Silver’s blog is listed in our links section:
