Great turnout at today's RRFM. Thank you to everyone who came out and participated! Lots of people were able to get things they needed and get rid of things they didn't. There was music, dancing, food, massages, and lots of useful things - a really great atmosphere and a really great crowd. See everyone next month!

The Des Moines Really Really Free Market is only 3 days away! It's looking like the weather will be beautiful, but a bit hot.

Lots of people will be bringing useful and beautiful things to give away and several people will be providing free services. Local artists will be performing - music, dance, art, and more. Food Not Bombs will be providing food, and medical students from DMU will be offering free basic medical screenings. There will be a "freesource" board and an information table where anybody can post any relevant and useful information to share with others.

Additionally, people have expressed the need for some specific items - if you have any of these, please bring them!
