Market bags are trendy right now, and it's a trend that I hope will stick. Crocheted market bags are much more environmentally friendly than their disposable counterparts, even the recycle-able ones.
I encourage everybody to make a market bag or two. (Or more!) If you drive, why not stash a couple of them in your car trunk so that you have them handy if you ever want to make a quick trip to the store to pick up a few things.
Crochet is a great medium for making market bags. Pictured here: Erica Jackofsky's updated market bag, crocheted in an earth-friendly organic cotton yarn. It's a gorgeous bag that'll transport your stuff in style no matter where you want to take it.
