Free Markets

A freemarket is “a ‘potluck’ of things, services, food, and community that comes together once a month. The goal is to encourage the idea of giving just for the sake of giving and to create a constructive alternative movement to the waste and exploitation of the capitalistic economy.”
-San Francisco Bay Area Progressive Directory
