Friday, September 29th, 2023 – “Really, Really Free” Lents Night Market (4:00 – 7:00 pm)

Location: Lents Masonic Lodge #156 Parking Lot (beside the fire station!) 5811 SE 92nd Avenue, Portland, OR 97266 (map link here)

What is a Really Free Market?

The Friday Really Free Night Market at Fall in Love with Lents is inspired by the “Really, Really Free” Market (RRFM) movement, which is a temporary market that aims to counteract capitalism by sharing! Sharing includes resources, caring for one another, and improving the collective lives of everyone in our community through giving and receiving.

This event is 100 percent free and created by everyone who shows up (that’s you!). We intend to transform each other through collective spirit and sharing – showcasing abundance, recycling, reusing and creativity. Be generous and join in!

How do I participate in a RRFM?

Come and share! At this event, you bring what you can, take what you need or want, and enjoy the company and talent of your neighbors! Please bring items, skills, knowledge, information, food, games to share. No barter, no trade, no money – everything is free. Conflicts will be resolved with Rock, Paper, Scissors!

Please plan to take home anything you bring that does not get picked up by others – we’re sharers not litterers. (Our clean-up crew is volunteers so we appreciate your help!)
