Dovercourt Park Community Association's Really Really Free Night Market
Really Really Free
A temporary gift economy
Dovercourt Park, Off-Nuit Blanche, Oct 5, 2013, 7pm - 11pm
Dovercourt Park Community Association is hosting a Really Really Free Night Market on October 5 from 7 - 11pm in Dovercourt Park on the evening of Nuit Blanche, Toronto’s city-wide, all-night art event. Everyone is welcome to bring items to contribute to the market and anyone can take something away. The Really Really Free Night Market is a gathering of community members in a social market environment where no money changes hands. It’s a vehicle for community engagement, an experiment in alternative economics but mostly its a fun off-Nuit Blanche event for all ages.
The Really Really Free Night Market will offer goods, services, snacks, crafts, surprise performances and more. You might expect to find: clothes, books, knickknacks, artifacts, jewelry, toys, games, baby gear, kids stuff, snacks, garden harvest, seeds, plants, good times and new friends.
take what you need and give what you can
no monetary exchange, trading, swapping, holding or credit
items must be: clean, gently-used, in good working order and walkable or bikeable (no large furniture or appliances) - no car access
Select remaining items will be donated to local charities Sistering and Eva’s Initiative and children’s books for the local Ontario Early Years Centre.
