While perusing fresh lacinato kale, heirloom tomatoes, raw honey and summer squash at my local farmer’s market this weekend, I kept thinking, “This stuff is too good to be squished into a reused plastic bag from the supermarket.” I found myself longing for today’s Freebie Friday — this simple, stylish and highly functional Market & Fruit Picking Pack from Kaufmann Mercantile Store. The rattan pack’s cotton back straps and squish-free design are enough to make it a must-have for any farmer’s-market-frequenting locavore. Plus, last month style-maven Joy Cho from the Oh Joy! blog featured it as the ultimate picnic basket.

    Looks just like the basket my husband pointed out to me in a picture taken 32 years ago at his Dad's camp! It was a basket that a bear had lugged off many years before that and a game warden had returned!
    We wonder what ever became of it!

    I live in a small town in Oklahoma and every Saturday morning during the summer we have the Farmers Market downtown and it is great! I go early and swoop up fresh tomatoes, green beans, baby eggplants, onions, potatoes, cantalope, blackberries and peaches and so much more, I need this lovely basket! It is so nice having fresh veggies and fruit all week…peach cobbler and homemade ice cream…yummy
