Free Market

What is the Free Market?

PETERBOROUGH/NOGOJIWANONG, Ontario – For the past 15 years, OPIRG (Ontario Public Interest Research Group) Peterborough has been running the Free Market, a program for all Trent University students and Peterborough community members to access clothing, books, and small household items for free.

Our Mandate

The Free Market working group exists to create a consistent, reliable space for the Peterborough/ Nogojiwanong community to access resources of clothes and books in an accessible, non-oppressive space. The Free Market exists to subvert capitalism and nurture sustainability, waste reduction, and environmental awareness.

Join our bi-weekly meetings and work periods!

Meetings to be held every other Wednesday @ 4:00 – 6:00pm

There will be casual drop-ins for event planning, mingling, working on projects and DIY troubleshooting every other week.
