Grocery Bags

6 Pack Bike Bag

If you get around the neighborhood by bicycle and you and/or your friends like to drink anything in a bottle, this was made for you. Made of sturdy canvas, the sides of the 6 Pack Bag are secured with Velcro, ensuring your cargo gets to your destination safe and sound. (I suppose you could also use this to transport your bottles from the grocery store, though you’d have to mess with unpacking them from their cardboard carton first.)

Produce Bags

I live right by a great farmer’s market and I like to use my usual canvas bags when I go, but canvas is sort of bulky and not the best for smaller items. The produce bags bridge the gap between large canvas totes and plastic bags because they’re light and translucent.

Because they’re mesh, you can wash your produce right in the bag; they’ve got color-coded tabs (in a lovely palette), and they’re fully machine washable. Best of all, you get a set of 5 bags (one of each tab color).

Dimensions: 12รฏยฟยฝ x 14″

Price: $11.00 for a set of 5

Tyvek Market Bags

These super-durable Tyvek bags will handle all your shopping purchases time after time. I like how they are reusable bags masquerading as regular paper bags, sort of nice compared to all the in-your-face alternatives. They’re discontinued, which is why they are on sale, so better to snap them up while you can.

…these brilliant bags created by Marian Schoettle that have the design and look of an ordinary shopping bag but are made of ultra-durable Tyvek, a synthetic material made of high-density polyethylene fiber. Tyvek can not be easily ripped and is waterproof (the Post Office uses envelopes made of it) so these bags have the lightness of a paper bag with the strength of steel.

medium: 12″ L x 6″ W x 14″ H, $65.00 $39.95
large: 14″ L x 8″ W x 16″ H, $80.00 $49.95

Market Tote

I’ve been pretty good this year about bringing canvas totes with me to go grocery shopping. It’s mostly working out, but I’ve got to say that this Market tote which has the pockets on the outside for odd shaped bottles would make it almost effortless to carry groceries without feeling like your bag is about to burst at the seams.
