• We characterize topological (and uniform) spaces whose free (locally convex) topological vector spaces have a local $\mathfrak G$-base. A topological space $X$ has a local $\mathfrak G$-base if every point $x$ of $X$ has a neighborhood base $(U_\alpha) _ {\alpha\in\omega^\omega}$ such that $U_\beta\subset U_\alpha$ for all $\alpha\le\beta$ in $\omega^\omega$. To construct $\mathfrak G$-bases in free topological vector spaces, we exploit a new description of the topology of a free topological vector space over a topological (or more generally, uniform) space.
