Spring Ahead: 2 Farmers Market Tote Kits

Spring is just around the corner, and we’re planning to spring ahead with our crafting. Your local farmers market will be back in action soon with lots of fresh produce and baked goods, time to get ready! We’ve got two market tote crochet kits to help you carry all of those delicious local goodies home, in a reusable and stylish way.

Spring Ahead!

Practicality with a Purpose

Environmentally Friendly

The spring season brings with it a chance to indulge in the freshest of foods. We can all agree that supporting your local farmers market is wonderful, but why not take it a step further and go green while you do it? Making your own farmers market tote is a an eco-friendly way to cut down on the plastic bags that we sometimes overuse. Rather than springing for a reusable bag at your neighborhood grocery store, grab a skein for the same price and get crafting!

Tote-ally Ready for Spring: 2 Crochet Kits

Manhattan Market Tote Crochet Kit

First up, we’ve got the Manhattan Market Tote Crochet Kit by designer Mama in a Stitch for our crocheters. This Level 2+ Easy Beginner crochet pattern works up beautifully with just three skeins of Heartland Thick & Quick yarn. With a sturdy bottom, it is the ideal bag for carrying heavier produce all the while sporting a stylish tassel for an extra bit of fun!

French Market Tote (Crochet)

  • What a great idea! I’ve been meaning to crochet a produce bag so that I do not have to waste plastic at the grocery store. These are beautiful!

    • Thanks, Erica – Let us know if you whip one up!

  • I ordered the French Market tote kit. I made it and LOVE the tote. It was such fun to make. Now I’ll make my daughters each a bag.

  • Very nice, but I knit. Are copies of these available in knitting patterns? Thank you.

  • These bag crochet patterns look challenging and useful: I do agree with the question posted on 17, that it would be good to offer a knitted bag pattern>
