The Santa Monica Farmers Market is to me what Rodeo Drive is to power shoppers. My local market is arguably one of the best markets in the entire country. The amazing farmers offer beautiful, quality produce year round. The way shoppers head to Beverly Hills, food fans flock to the Santa Monica Farmers Market.
I truly love my visits to the market. I’m relaxed, happy, and inspired by everything around me. There is nothing better than strolling the stalls, chatting with friendly farmers, and chef spotting. It’s a thrill to see local restaurants inspect and pick up orders, taste new things, and change menus on the spot based on what looks good.
There are a lot of different options for hauling home your loot. I am absolutely crazy about this French Farmers Market Basket. It’s not only totally chic but functional as well. This woven winner offers a sturdy flat bottom and two options for straps: handheld or over the shoulder. This bag is perfect for your local farmers market run and makes an insane hostess gift. Skip the obligatory hostess candle and show up at your next dinner party with this lovely bag filled with fresh cut flowers.
You can find the tote here.
