Oh, la belle France - without knowing it, I was already falling in love! Julia Child

{HISTORY}

That quote above was proclaimed by Julia upon experiencing her first exhilarating moment of joie de vivre after she moved to France in 1948. We hope that you'll feel the exact same way about this handmade French market bag. 

Made of handwoven palm leaves and secured with hand-sewn rolled leather handles that rest comfortably in your hand, or the crook of your arm, it is the epitome of chic style and functionality when it comes to transporting your vegetables between market and kitchen.

Lightweight yet very durable, it holds a surprising amount of groceries, just in case your appetite runs away with you at the farmers market. Specially designed with a wider opening at the top, allows room for longer-shaped items like baguettes, flowers, wine, and other fragile items to rest securely without being squashed or jostled around.

An ideal bag for shoppers who do a majority of food gathering via car or like to pop by the market on a daily basis, this bag is great for keeping groceries contained while driving as well as for frequent smaller shopping excursions. When not in use it sits elegantly on the floor patiently waiting for its next excursion. 

An absolute favorite here in the Vintage Kitchen, we have used this style of market bag on a daily basis for over four years now. To say that we fell in love it with just like Julia fell in love with France is an understatement! That is why we are so excited to share it with you here in the shop. In addition to our almost daily marketing jaunts, our market bag has also moonlighted as a beach tote, a picnic basket, a book satchel, and an overnight bag too. Clearly, joie de vivre knows no limits! 

Delicious adventures await!
