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.

    I love a huge variety of raw veggies and fruit, but stir fry with fresh veggies and apple slices is reallllly good. Just that added touch of sweetness from the apples is wonderful.
