Market Grown Bags

Designers Catalina RozoMelissa Clinard recently created these bags to support local farmers in Alachua County, FL. Sold at Gainesville's Union Street Farmers' Market, the burlap bags are lined with waterproof nylon fabric, making it appropriate for just washed, delicate produce. Rozo and Clinard screen-printed the burlap with vibrant designs of oranges, strawberries, and lettuce.

My favorite feature of the bag is the handle length and width. As you can see in the picture below, it looks perfect for market shopping: you can shop with both hands and easily tuck your fruits and veggies into the bag instead of struggling to put your purchases in your shoulder tote only to have one of the handles fall off your shoulder, spilling your items all over the place. (Or maybe this only happens to me?!)
