The 20 Best Market Bags for Stowing Your Groceries and Belongings in Style

Farmer’s market season is upon us. There’s a simple joy in the ritual of waking up early on a Saturday morning to stroll past vendors offering up fresh eggs and just-picked tomatoes. But, walking out the door, you may not want to do your shopping with just any old tote. The best market bags serve their purpose of being big enough to fit your necessities but add a fashion-forward touch to your look too. It can be more overt via graphic logo bags from the Likes of Dior or Prada, or it can be something more subtle like a Parisian-inspired raffia tote.

These bags are meant to be handy, a catch-all for not just groceries but your necessities as you run around town—book and snack included. Plus, ideally, it is stylish enough to take a simple jeans and tee combination or an athleisure-centered outfit to an elevated new level. The bottom line: getting groceries should still be a chance to show off your sense of style. Below, find 20 options that may leave you reconsidering the mini bags that have dominated the last few years and instead considering the move to a market bag instead.

Colorful Catchalls

If you’re on the hunt for a bag that’s fit for a bold, colorful summer, try one of these options. The graphic riffs on classic stripes won’t clash with the rest of your look, but they’ll still add plenty of texture and depth to your outfit.

Canvas Classics

Classic, sturdy canvas can stand up to your more rigorous errands. If you want a bag that can be set on the ground for a summer picnic or can survive a trip to the beach, this is the style to have on your radar.

Nothing But Netted

So you don’t mind being a bit of an exhibitionist? Consider stowing your groceries in a netted bag. It will help keep your delicate peaches and snap peas from getting squished, and it will show off to the world your great taste in produce.

Don’t be afraid to invest in a luxe logo-adorned bag for your day-to-day use. While you may want to be a bit more precious about where you set it down or what you put inside (maybe put those post-gym socks in a Ziploc before you throw them in), these bags will elevate whatever look you style them with.

Straw and Raffia

Lightweight materials like straw and raffia are staples during summer, and bags like these are a staple among those who gravitate towards the French girl aesthetic. Style with a Breton shirt, and let a baguette peek out from inside.
