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.

    Not a big fruit eater, but love my veggies. I especially like to thinly slice zucchini and bake it in the oven. Sometimes I sprinkle a bit of wheat germ on it. So yummy.

    I love to grill fresh veggies & use them in salads. This basket would be perfect for bringing them home from the market!!

    I would love this tote, always have soo much stuff to carry. I'm sure however, in no time my 4 year old will "borrow" it and fill it with an array of dolls and doll clothes, oh and crystals! I will get great use !! :)
