Whatever sends you off to the market, our wonderful Market Basket will tote it all home for you. Designed with a sturdy handle and a thick base, you will get years of use out of them. Each basket holds an amazing amount of stuff, and yet keeps it all where you put it. Durably and consciously constructed by hand, designs will vary. Fantastic for an entryway catchall as well. A great gift that gives back to the artisans who created it. Ghana.

From a fair trade group

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous! I ordered one of these baskets for myself and another for my mom. When we received them, we were delighted by their beautiful designs, large capacity, and unique, organic shape. I rolled up towels and put the basket in the bathroom, where it looks terrific. I will probably order another for my living room in my new home. These were an incredible value and so lovely. March 31, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Value now that "green living" has become fashionable, people are asking where I bought my lovely basket. I have had it for nearly 5 years, and use it every time I shop. It looks just as good now as when it was new. I have at times, packed it with 30 - 40 lbs of produce, and it still holds. It was money well spent. Everyone should own at least 2! February 17, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Item I purchased this as a gift for my sister for Christmas. Right after I ordered the basket from Gaiam, I saw what were billed as "Market Baskets" at my local Pier 1 (although they were not Fair Trade) for the same price, and I really hoped that the basket from Gaiam wasn't as cheaply made and flimsy. I didn't have to worry! The basket I received is just fabulous, and I am hoping my sister enjoys it for years to come. She is really a big farmer's market person, and I can see her using this basket quite a lot. This is definitely a quality item. December 18, 2008
