Free market means that the State interferes in the market in a way to empower certain people and behaviors and restricts or punishes other, that is the State acts as an authority. Specifically it means empowering entrepreneurs and licit voluntary transactions, coercively enforcing contracts, and punishing coercive or illicit transactions. That is the State authoritatively establishes some ordering of goods.
Minimizing government interference in the markets means that the state interferes in the markets and coercively enforces a preferable set of goods. That is the State authoritatively acts in its jurisdiction in proportion to its power.
Otherwise, free market and limited government are nonsense.
