On October 4, 2014,  the Carrboro Really Really Free Market, the longest running event of its kind, celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary. Held on the first Saturday of each month, the free market creates a space where hundreds gather to share skills, food, performances and goods without bartering or exchanging currency.

Really Really Free Market supporter Heather Graves said, "The Really Really Free Market is a decade long self-organizing phenomena. There's no formal leadership, board, or organizing body: in the three years I've been involved, the only meetings have been to organize the 10 year celebration."

Anyone is welcome to participate, and the 10 year anniversary has a myriad of activities already planned. Workshops on harm reduction, radical history in North Carolina, and self-defense are confirmed. A children's track of games and story telling will coincide with a variety of  puppet shows, music, and dancing throughout the day. Two local groups that often share food, Food Not Bombs and Prayers and Pancakes, will also be there. Artisans are offering knitting and crocheting workshops and an upcycling DIY area for sewing and alterations in preparation for a Found It at the Free Market fashion show. The Recyclery will be fixing bikes on site all day. There will also be tables of the best in anarchist 'zines from around the world. As well as bringing the usual goods to give away, all guests are encouraged to share a skill or passion. People looking for a way to plug into the 10 year celebration can consult the wish list posted on the Really Really Free Market website.

"We're having a birthday cake contest and a piñata contest! For the next two weeks, look throughout town for piñatas stuffed with instructions on how to make your own," Graves said. "And as for the celebration: expect surprises. We are."
