KCA sponsored Really Really Free Market~Every 1st Saturday of the Month, unless otherwise posted, at the Avon Fire Station on Harbor Road in Historic Avon Village.

It's like a yard sale~except everything is FREE!

Everyone is welcome at this free event, where all are encouraged to give, receive, and create on their own terms. You are invited to arrive between 9:30 am and 12:30 pm with goods, services, skills, performances, stories, crafts, food, games, music, clothing, furniture, plants, and resources to share with others in the community. The event is self-organized by everyone who participates.

Nothing is required for participation, but please think creatively about the skills you have and could teach, the useful or beautiful things you have and don’t need, or the resources you can share with people to create something during the event.

Really Really Free Markets celebrate forms of cooperation and gift-giving. They create open spaces in which status is generated by giving rather than owning, and in which giving and receiving happen directly. As at other Really Really Free Markets across the U.S. and around the world, we aim to create and participate in a world in which resources are held in common, we find in ourselves the capacity to meet the needs of others in our community, and "free" means just that: really, really free.

Please note: This event is not a ‘dumping ground’ for people to get rid of things they don’t want; rather it is a space where people come together to provide for each other, inspire each other, and share together in the abundance of goods, skills, and creativity of our community.

Because there's enough for everyone…

…because no one should be without food, community, or creative opportunities
…because sharing is more fulfilling than owning
…because people getting things for free is better than landfills overflowing
…because a beautiful day outside is better than anything money could buy
…because life should involve picnics, but it will only if we make them happen
…because there is too such thing as a free lunch.
