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.

    Being that its just my husband and I, things usually go bad before we can eat them all. But we like to make a day of it with our neices and nephews. The farmer's market and the the park for a picnic.

    Love buying "just what I need" for the week and going back every week. The Coventry Regional Farmer's Market in CT was just voted #1 in CT by Yankee Magazine for a great reason! I will most likely can later in the season. Right now after this long horrible winter we had, it is about savoring every new crop that comes out.
    This would be the perfect container for all of them.
