Sat: Really Really Free Market // Mon: Border Resistance Speaking Tour // Wed: A Show! // Fri: Art Opening & Night Market!

-Saturday, July 27th, noon-3pm:  Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything's free

Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. We all have something to share with each other... and to receive with gratitude is also a gift.  This gathering is not about the "stuff" we give and take, but more about how we can care for each other.

This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! But come to the really really free market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. Bring food to share.  Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box).  Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...).  Come and take what you can use and say thanks!  We will have folks to check in with as you arrive.  First come first served, space may be limited. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market.

*Dogtooth & Nail (On Tour) Portland OR politically charged folk punk 
**Wayfairy (Oakland) Wayfairy started with a banjo on the turnpike and has grown into a six piece music project that fills the sonic space between mournful folk and riotous punk. 
***Byssus (Santa Cruz) Dedicated to the resilient inter-species entanglements that defy the logic of empire by their very existence. These songs are for the weavers and dreamers who remember that collective survival relies on tended relationship.

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
