Based on the San Francisco Free Market every month in Dolores Park and the wonderfully named East Bay Hella Free Day at Lake Merritt, Napa’s very own Really Really Free Market Napa
follows the same very basic rules: (1) bring stuff to give away; (2) take stuff for free; (3) meet people in your city, listen to music, enjoy life and don’t spend a dime doing so. Everyone wins! This concept would surely horrify columnist Terry Savage, who recently penned the much-Tweeted socialism fear-fest in the Sun-Times
about young girls ruining America by giving away lemonade for free—which is great because he needs to be horrified! (And fired.) Founded by Melody Harris, who writes a much better column in the form of her zine Napkin News
, the Really Really Free Market is an idea whose time is timeless. Bring all your cool stuff you don’t want to bother to sell on Craigslist and take some new stuff home on Sunday, July 25, at Veterans Park, Third and Main St., Napa. Noon. Free. firstname.lastname@example.org.
