This is a round-up of 20 free crochet market bag patterns from some of the great designers. Crochet market bags are so easy and quick to make and super useful!

I wake up super early every Saturday morning. After soaking up the morning sun with a freshly brewed cup of coffee in my hand, I head down to the local farmer’s market.

I simply love the fresh products that were so carefully grown and made. There is a real sense of appreciation for things produced on a smaller scale, often by just a couple of pairs of hands.

I am so proud to be walking down my usual route around the market with a handmade crochet market bag happily swinging on my shoulder. It gets lots of smiles and turns a few heads.

Why make a crochet market bag?

Firstly, market bags as crochet projects are so satisfying to make, aren’t they? They use open crochet stitches to create mesh-type fabric. This means they can expand to double their original size. Even more room for yarn… uhm … I mean fresh produce…

Because they use open lacy stitches, they are super fast to work up. This makes them a great craft stall product to sell too.

A crochet market bag is also such a great alternative to a plastic bag to carry your shopping. As mentioned above they can fit a lot of shopping in and you do not have to worry that the handles are going to give in under the weight.

They are environmentally friendly as you can use them over and over again. Furthermore, they are super stylish and you can customize them in size and color you want to use.
