Roberts Creek free market on Sunday

10003602_639292442823792_5540745920436847855_oThe next Free Market is coming on July 27, 11 am to 2 pm at the gazebo behind the Roberts Creek library. Organizers encourage sharing of items and skills for free.

On June 27, they are also opening the Heart Market to backyard growers for encouraging people to swap their surplus produce and share the goods they’ve grown.

“With seven weekly markets on the coast, the vendor pool is a bit stretched,” cocoordinator Dana Wilson noted, “yet with brilliant weather garden yields have been high, so let’s share in the abundance and also continue to support the farmers – particularly Rolling Earth and Suncreek Farms who have rocked it each week thus far!”

In addition, they are going to be having a clothing swap as part of the Free Market, and welcome folks to bring anything they feel called to release from their closets.

Wilson notes that with each Free Market, each person is responsible for their own items, however, she notes that she is open to the offering of a volunteer to kindly deliver anything left (from the clothing swap particularly) to a charity shop if that can be arranged in advance.

There will be Free Markets again on August 24 and September 21, but they need suggestions for the theme, “I am open to ideas!” the Creek booster noted, offering suggestions that include a tool swap, book swap or an art swap, for example. Email Dana Wilson at dwil

Gibsons Recycling will take basic recycling, at the Free Market, so save yourself a trip to Gibsons, she added, and sent thanks to Sunshine Coast in Transition, Gaiacraft, the RCCA and Gibsons Recycling for supporting the Free Market.
