Going to the grocery store is something we all do on a regular basis. I remember when I was growing up how much my mom disliked it. Having to go by herself to buy food for a family of seven doesn’t sound very fun, and I don’t blame her for disliking it. Luckily we have a grocery store right down the road from us, and since we go there almost everyday, grocery shopping isn’t as overwhelming as it was for my mom’s weekly trips. Ever since the move to our little farmhouse, I’ve wanted to start using market bags for when I go grocery shopping. I got the idea from my sister-in-law, Solviej, who’s been using them for a few years.
Market bags are any kind of reusable bag that you take shopping. They’re a great alternative to the free plastic ones you get at the store because they’re much better for the environment. Some grocery stores also give bonus fuel points if they’re used instead of plastic ones. There are all kinds of market bags available. My sister-in-law uses some market bags she got from her local grocery store. I bought some several years ago from Williams Sonoma that we use quite a bit. I’ve seen market bags made of string, canvas, jute, and any kind of synthetic material. If you can find a washable one, that’s even better.

I’ve found some options for market bags below. Sadly, the ones I use aren’t made anymore, but there are some similar bags.
