10 Easy Pieces: French Market Totes

June 4, 2013

This weekend there were strawberries, asparagus, and wide-open peonies at the farmers’ market. While I stuffed my goodies unceremoniously into a backpack, I couldn’t help but wish I had a beautiful straw market tote í  la my friends across the pond in Paris. In case you’ve got similar yearnings, here’s a roundup of ten French market totes, perfect for carting home bundles of fresh flowers and cuts of stinky cheese…tous les deux.
