What's a Really, Really, Free Market you say?
A Really, Really Free Market (RRFM) is a community gathering where participants bring, and give away (absolutely free), any usable items, skills, ideas, smiles, talents, friendship, excitement, discussions, games and many others things that we as a community can come together and share. A RRFM is a 100% free and non-commercial event, organized by participants just like you. It is a temporary autonomous zone instituting the gift economy as an alternative to the capitalist mode of resource distribution. A RRFM is not just a once a month party, it is an ethos and a way of being that transforms people through its experience and is then carried into other areas of life.
We're really, really excited about this monthly event and the market in general! If you'd like to inform the market community of what you have to offer to the RRFM or would like to stay regularly updated about market events and attractions join the Upper State Farm Market Facebook Group.
We can't wait to see you there!
~The Market Team
Organized by a volunteer committee of neighborhood residents, and coordinated by the Upper State Street Association, the Upper State Market is dedicated to promoting the Upper State Street and New Haven community by providing a wide range of fresh, local food to the neighborhood and connecting local farmers with consumers.
What could be better than a community market run by neighbors for neighbors?
Come for the food, stay for the community.
