The next food swap will be on Saturday November 25, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at the corner of Oakover Road and High St, South Preston (outside the op shop, either at the front in the garden or out the back if shade is needed or if it’s raining)

Really Really Free Market #8

A community gathering where participants give away usable items, skills, food, entertainment, games and many others things that a community can come together and share. A RRFM is a 100% free and non-commercial event (no bartering or advertising), created by participants who show up each month!

Movies Screenings, Workshops, Hardgoods, Arts Space, Clothes, Bric-a-Brac, Yoga, Veggie Seedlings, Zines, Food, Books,’ whatever you bring – let everyone know in the comments!

When: Sunday November 26, 10 am to 2 pm
Where: Railway Reserve Bike Path, Preston
Just North of Murray Road, Preston, along the Railway Reserve Bike Path (extension of St. Georges Rd Bike Path).
Bike: It’s along the path, so suited for cyclists.
Train: 50m Walk from Preston Station, Nearby 86 Tram and High St. Buses.
Car: Ample Parking at Preston Station. In the interests of the residents in Stanworth Ct, please do not park there!
Low mobility access: Drop off at Stanworth Ct, the market is a few meters along an unpaved path.

Come along, no obligations to bring anything, all welcome. If you are interested in having a stall you can get in touch with the RRFM via FB or just bring your free ‘goods or service’ on the day and find us at the Info Tent! Don’t forget to take any of your untaken belongings home with you!

If you are interested in helping coordinate the event let us know – this is a volunteer run community event, if you have some time to coordinate, promote, or help on the day, please do get in touch! Many hands make light work!

The Really Really Free Market pops up in a place with a not-so-free history; we acknowledge that the sovereinty of the Wurundjeri people has never been ceded, the so called ‘Batman Treaty’ was misleading and is invalid. Oppression and genocide of First Nations people is ongoing and continues to this day. We would also like to pay our respects to all oppressed people, and elders, past, present and future.

Food Swaps – Northcote

The next Northcote food swap will be on Saturday December 9, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at 251 High St Northcote in the side garden of the church.

Food Swaps are an occasion to meet your community, talk about gardens and sustainability and swap excess produce from your garden, or something you made in your kitchen. You bring some and get to take some away as with all good swaps.

Ideas of what to bring:

  • seeds from your garden
  • seedlings
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • preserves
  • cordials
  • sour dough starter

The list goes on…
