Abstract: We investigate forcing notions with the rectangle refining property, which is stronger than the countable chain condition, and fragments of Martin's Axiom for such forcing notions. We prove that it is consistent that every forcing notion with the rectangle refining property has precaliber $ \aleph_1$ but $ \operatorname{\sf {MA}}_{\aleph_1}$ for forcing notions with the rectangle refining property fails.
