Must-Have Market Totes for the Long Haul
Summer market season’s in full swing. That stained and torn TJ's bag won't cut it. Don't get caught out there with any old carryall.
Here are six bags that fit the bill for all of the flea market finds, CSA goodness, and road trip shopping fun you can carry. Happy shopping.
Kate Spade New York Newspaper Print Canvas Tote
Who cares if your Sunday reading list skews more CB2 catalog than the NYT Arts section? This paper-printed tote is smart enough all on its own. Available at nordstrom.com, $25.
Boticca Expandable Safari Tote
Funny how “I’m grabbing a few Vitamix staples,” can morph into a fridge worth of stuff. To wit: This expandable, leather-handled tote, doubles in size depending on how much juicing you intend to do this week. Will you actually juice is another conversation. Available at boticca.com, $160.
Striped French Grocery Bag
Whether you’re shopping for staples or prone to impulse-purchases of whole live lobsters and herbs you have never heard of before, this French-style bag is designed — and priced —to come in handy whenever you need it. Easy to stash, wash, and line dry. Available at brookfarmgeneralstore.com, $16.
Italic Home Waxed Shopping Bag
There’s nothing not to love about this reusable bag with a beeswax finish. It's reinforced handles and a durable finish means worry-free carrying of all of those heavy goods. Available at etsy.com, $40.
Athleta Neoprene Beach Tote
A good book, cute sun hat and that essential bottle of rosé: Precious cargo deserves a bag that stands up to the job. This multi-pocketed, water-resistant neoprene ditty does so rain, surf, or shine. Available at athleta.com, $72.
