Market Tote


It's a well known fact that I frequent the farmer's market as part of my weekend errand hopping. We love seeing our local farmers and interacting with them. We not only get to know where our food is coming from but we also support people locally. While the husband primarily totes our groceries around, when the bags get full I do my part. I carry my one bag.

I've owned the Apolis market tote x SF for a while now but never showcased it on the blog. The Apolis totes go towards a great cause by supporting employment for 21 women.  It's really great for the farmer's market since it features a waterproof lining and has leather straps that are reinforced by antique nickel rivets. It also has a small inside pocket so I can stash change from my purchases. And, I admit, I adore the way it looks too.


I love to support companies that contribute towards a bigger purpose. It's a wonderful endeavor that I'm glad to promote simply by carrying a market tote. Do you support any companies this way?

  6. Love your striped dress and casual jacket, dressed up by that dazzling smile!
    I do love the tote, too, and appreciate why you carry it,
    It is wonderful for you to support small farmers, for you and they, and good to support the cause that represent the bag,
    I do try to buy local, I try not to buy from big chains, and have not accepted any paid posts from would be sponsors. I do not mind that others, too, but my preference is not to.
    I hope you are feeling as fabulous as you look,
    Love watching you "grow"
    lots and lots of hugs,

  13. Eeek, you look so adorable. I'm kind of bummed on the leather straps! I'm vegetarian so it's not suitable for me. I love the idea of supporting local, sustainable businesses. We need more!.

  15. I love brands and companies with a conscience. Over here we have "Thank You" water (and now other products) were all the profits go towards helping other nations have access to clean water. I always try to buy a bottle or two of this rather than others because of it's purpose.

  19. I don't shop at the FM as much as I used to because I get a weekly CSA delivery. My son loves it because he thinks the farmers specially box the items for him and we get to try things that we may not buy. Great tote - it's perfect for the FM.

  21. This is the perfect tote! Practical while also supporting a good cause. I'm going to check out the brand to see if they have a bag with longer straps
