There’s something about the farmer’s market that makes one feel purposeful– you wake up early, you watch your dollars move out of your hand and into someone else’s in cash, you have a face-to-face interaction with bakers, butchers, farmers. Candlestick makers, even, if you have an apiarist in town. The entire outing is very tactile– better still, you get the satisfaction of knowing you’re supporting local businesses and keeping transportation costs to a minimum. One more way to feel good about yourself on market day? Carry your groceries home in this useful (and socially conscious) bag from Apolis. It’s made in conjunction with a group of craftswomen in Bangladesh, which means you’ll be helping increase economic progress there even as you fill your bag by shopping locally. Helping your town? Great. Helping your town and someone else’s? Even better. Get it here.
