This market bag is magic. Its apple-shaped bottom expands outward, to keep your fresh produce from piling up on top of itself in the bottom of the bag. The gathered mesh grows so quickly from the cast-on circle that it stretches laterally and creates a donut-shaped pocket all around the bottom. The wide, Linen Stitch strap stays flat and unstretched as you fill this delicious bag with all your farmers’ market finds.
