While I highly recommend keeping your own garden, I know it’s not always possible to grow everything you want. Farmers’ market season is in full-swing and is the perfect solution for the locavore with limited garden time or space. Many markets also boast an array of handmade soaps, candles, and other crafts; there is definitely something for everyone!
Many vendors often provide a plastic bag for carrying your loot. But why not bring your own reusable tote?
Making a market tote is easy, fun, and earth-friendly. Use sturdy fabric, burlap, or even fused plastic bags.

And now…make a bag!
