I love this season! The season of fresh flowers and farmer’s markets. The time of the year when we can casually stroll through the booths of fresh veggies and locally grown produce and fill ourselves up with their goodness. I made my Off To The Market Bag for this exact reason. It’s roomy and airy making it perfect to handle lots of goodies you find-long enough for zucchini and cucumber and a pattern perfect for keeping in berries and other small items as you breeze through the market. I added a cross-body strap to help with bearing the weight of all your finds. Besides, it looks awesome, too! Now, before you hit the farmer’s markets in your area, why not make yourself one of these today?
My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
