There s debate as to whether a Free Market can ever truly exist at all. To fulfill the definition, in a Economics sense, you need things like instantaneous information spread all across the market. In addition if you look at the NYSE, often touted as approaching an dealized free market, you will find it covered by three layers of regulation; the exchange regulations and by laws, the NY state regulations, and the SEC. So it seems you can't even get close to a free market with out regulation and government intervention.
