The 20 best market bags to store your groceries and belongings in style
Farmers market season is upon us. There is a simple joy in the ritual of waking up early on a Saturday morning to stroll past vendors offering fresh eggs and freshly picked tomatoes. But, going out, you might not want to shop with just any old tote. The best bags on the market aim to be large enough to suit your needs, but also add a fashion-forward touch to your look. It can be more overt via graphic logo bags like Dior or Prada, or it can be something more subtle like a Parisian-inspired raffia tote.
These bags are designed to be practical, a tote not only for groceries, but also for your needs when running around town – book and snack included. Plus, ideally, it’s stylish enough to take a simple jeans and t-shirt combo or an athletic-centric outfit to a new, lofty level. The bottom line: Grocery shopping should always be a chance to show off your sense of style. Below, find 20 options that might make you reconsider the mini bags that have dominated the past few years and consider switching to a market bag instead.
Colorful Tote Bags
If you’re looking for a bag suitable for a bold and colorful summer, try one of these options. The graphic riffs on the classic stripes won’t clash with the rest of your look, but they’ll still add plenty of texture and depth to your outfit.
The classic, rugged canvas can withstand your most rigorous runs. If you want a bag that can be put on the ground for a summer picnic or can survive a trip to the beach, this is the style to have on your radar.
nothing but neat
So you don’t mind being a little exhibitionist? Remember to store your groceries in a mesh bag. It will prevent your delicate peaches and sugar snap peas from being crushed, and it will show the world your good taste in produce.
Don’t be afraid to invest in a luxury logo-embellished bag for your everyday use. While you might want to be a little more precious about where you put it or what you put inside (maybe put those post-gym socks in a Ziploc before you throw them away), these bags will enhance whatever look you style them with.
Straw and Raffia
Lightweight materials like straw and raffia are summer staples, and bags like these are a staple among those who gravitate towards the French aesthetic. Wear it with a Breton shirt and let a baguette peek out from within.
