Saturday September 6th was the 9 Year and 11 Month Anniversary of the Carrboro Really Really Free Market. That’s 119 Really Really Free Markets. We celebrated by making piñatas for the 120th Really Really Free Market, the 10 year Anniversary next month on OCTOBER 4th at 2PM. Did we mention we’re having a pinata contest? And a birthday cake contest!

This Saturday our world famous free market was visited by Ashanti Alston andSubmedia, both of whom just spoke on UNC campus.  Like always many things were exchanged, from the usual watermelon, ice cream, groceries, boots, books and clothes to the unusual, a telescope! One very happy young person will be doing some late night star gazing from the balcony of their Carrboro apartment.

And next month, cloud cover and light pollution allowing, we can all star gaze together on Carrboro Town Commons. A little astronomy is just one of the many things being shared during our 10 Year Celebration. We’ve confirmed bike repair, radical history, a harm reduction workshop, a puppet show and all kinds of music. Food Not Bombs and Prayers & Pancakes will both be serving up meals and snacks and there will be a grocery distribution as well. (more…)
