Really, Really Free Market 2019 - Plainfield

08:30 AM - 03:00 PM

Plainfield United Methodist Church
15114 S. Illinois Street
Plainfield, IL, 60544-2804

The Plainfield United Methodist Church’s Green Team is organizing their seventh annual, Really, Really Free Market. Think "Garage Sale - except everything is FREE!" Everyone is invited to bring in items they don't want and to take items they can use without any fees. The event takes place at Plainfield United Methodist Church's Fellowship Hall, 15114 S. Illinois Street, Plainfield, IL from 8:30am-3pm.


Plainfield United Methodist Church’s (PUMC) Green Team Small Group will be hosting their 7th annual “Plainfield Really, Really Free Market” on Saturday, August 3rd from 830 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Plainfield United Methodist Church.

Seven years ago, the PUMC Green Team was formed with the vison of introducing programs and education to encourage the PUMC congregation members to be engaged in recycling, composting, water conservation, and other environmental initiatives. They partnered with friends from Will County Green, Sharefest New Lenox, Faith in Place, and Conservation Plainfield to further these plans. As a result, the idea of hosting a “Really Really Free Market” in Plainfield was born.

Since beginning this annual community event in 2013, the PUMC Green Team has introduced the concept and mission of the “Free Market” to over a thousand neighbors throughout Will and surrounding (DuPage, Cook, Kane, Grundy and Kendall) counties. We are thrilled to see our neighbors in towns such as Minooka and Joliet carry on this idea now!

The general concept of any “really really free market” is simple: you bring or donate things you do not need or want any longer and take whatever you do need.  

The mission of our really really free market was expanded to include how we all “come together as a community to redistribute items that are no longer needed or wanted to put those items directly into the hands of those who can use or need them. Its purpose its threefold- help the environment, reduce our clutter, help those in need.”

On this day you will find it is a great place where the community can come together for fellowship and help each other. And as a bonus, this year we are hoping to partner with several local businesses to offer a mini job fair!

Many local businesses and organizations do their part as well, by supporting and promoting the event with flyers, posters, and food donations for the participants. We heart you!
