There was a big spillover from the Vietnamese community’s Lunar New Year celebration in the gymnasium. There were 20 to 30 people from that event who came into our room near the end of the market

Thank you for coming!

By our count 94 people came and participated in the first North York Really Really Free Market on Saturday! Wow! We hope you all gave and received a lot of nice things!

We borrowed these signs from the downtown Really Really Free Market. We were originally supposed to close at 2 but the Driftwood Community Centre staff thought it was such a great event and let us stay until 4.
