6 Ways to use your Market Basket

Market baskets are becoming increasingly popular and can be used in a number of ways besides toting at the market…
Below we are sharing our favourite ways to use our Market Basket.

With their beautiful colours and unique woven patterns, our Market Baskets make the perfect accessory in the home and out and about. Each of our baskets are beautifully handmade from Elephant Grass and naturally dyed in brilliant colours, resulting in a unique look that expresses the heart of each individual creator.

All our baskets are ethically sourced from Fair Trade Federation members, and are handpicked for their unique beauty. These multi-functional baskets can be used at the market, in your home and even for a trip to the grocery store.

Grocery Shopping
Bring your market basket shopping. It’s a great way to avoid using plastic bags and can be popped straight in your trolley- great for gathering fresh items like veggies and fruit.                                                                                                                                 

Farmers Market
This one is pretty obvious… Our market basket is perfect for a trip to your local farmers market. Make sure you pop your flowers on top so they are not crushed and always lay egg cartons flat.

Storage Basket
You can use your market basket around the house as storage, pop it by your bed to chuck books and cords in or under a console table to store blankets or shoes.

Indoor Plant Pot
Indoor plants are a big thing at the moment. Why not pop some beautiful lush greenery in your basket and add some colour to the room. We suggest a flowing ivy or string of pearls as a start.

Picking/harvesting basket
Going fruit picking? The market basket is perfect to carry your delicious finds. You can also use it when harvesting your home vegetable garden, or for storing your gardening equipment. 

Beach Buddy
Throw in your towel, favourite book, sunglasses and sunscreen in your favourite Market Basket and head to the beach for a relaxing day on the sand.
