Yes, the date and venue for the next round of Singapore Really Really Free Market (SRRFM) is set! And it will take place in conjunction with Extend The Feast 8, a programme operated by Happy People Helping People!
For the uninitiated, please find more information about SRRFM below and about how you can take part. For the rest, I guess all you need is this:
Date: 19th July 2015, Sunday, noon to 6pm
Venue: Block 15, Lorong 7 Toa Payoh, Singapore 310015. It’s kind of at the joint of Lorong 7 and Lorong 8, opposite Toa Payoh Polyclinic and there is a multi-purpose hall nearby.

SRRFM is an event, usually held bi-monthly and without a permanent location, for everyone to give and take old or new items as well as to provide and receive services for free. It is based on the concept of sharing resources, caring for one another and improving the collective lives of all.
By sharing, we are reducing consumption and waste of our natural resources, re-using what we don’t need anymore by passing it on, and most importantly, showing everyone that there are more sustainable and loving ways to live. There is no need for money and exchange at SRRFM!
Come to the next SRRFM to experience resources sharing, but bear in mind that this is not a place for us to dump thrash or hoard items that we don’t need. The services I have seen at the numerous SRRFM that I attended include shoulder/back massage, simple yoga, story-telling, guitar performance, Tarot card reading, poetry writing, portrait sketching and many more!
You may also volunteer your service to help maintain the smooth running of the Market for a couple of hours or throughout and explain to newcomers how the Market works. Use your talent in retail merchandising to attract more people to browse around. Or simply be there to have fun and make friends!
SRRFM is run by Post-Museum, an independent cultural and social space in Singapore which aims to encourage and support a thinking and pro-active community. It is an open platform for examining contemporary life, promoting the arts and connecting people.
If you wish to be on Post-Museum’s mailing list, please write to them at: email@example.com, they organise and participate in many different events and community activities.
