The really really free market began through spontaneously opened Faceboook Groups. On our home island, in our village, Jenn Auguston, organizes the local in person free market together with other volunteers. It has become something that local families rely on, especially at Christmas Time.
Due to Covid-19, the in person local free market has been cancelled. To complicate, the local thrift stores are also not taking donations this year. While Facebook groups have served the purpose till now, given these new circumstances, we think some more advanced functionality is required to service our communities this year and going forward.
We hope ReallyReallyFreeMarket.org new virtual free market app can continue the good that really really free markets have done in a safe and responsible way this holiday season.
