Really Really Free Market
Saturday, May 9 – 1-4 pm
A Really Really Free Market is like a mixed-bag potluck, or a free flea market. Stuff, entertainment, & fun—whatever we as a community can come together & share. Bring usable items, food, & talents—to give for the sake of giving. Don’t have anything on-hand? Come & browse what others are sharing. (FYI: The Underdog Café is merely host to our RRFM. You still have to pay for stuff from the store!) More info: http://www.emporiumwines.com/rrfm
