Containr Site in Sunnyside

YYC FREE MARKET is back for three consecutive months of GIVING & TAKING (and LEAVING NO TRACE)

What do you have to give? Stuff in your basement, words of encouragement, a dance, a short lesson, mechanical assistance, an entertaining thought or an item you no longer appreciate that could be cherished in the hands of a friend you've never met. Be creative with what you give. Give what you can. Take what you need.

Come explore our experimental market where we collaboratively create an atmosphere that focuses on sharing what we know and offering what we have. A market where the current monetary economic, capitalist and consumer based structures are temporarily turned off. This market requires you to make it your own. No money is required.

Please show up at 6pm to set up your area. Registration is not necessary but space is limited to a first-come-first-serve basis. Do not bring anything that you do not wish to give away or wouldn't mind going missing (people will assume everything is free). Limited tables and chairs are available.



To reduce consumption and to consider alternative economic models by strengthening Calgary's social fabric through the act of giving what one can and taking what one needs.
