Fabrics for a Market Tote

Spring has barely arrived for many of us and summer is right around the corner, but Farmer’s Markets are in full swing!


I love the atmosphere and smells of the Farmer’s Markets and find myself wanting to try a little of everything.

Do you have a favorite market tote for carrying all your special finds?

You can have an elaborate tote with lots of pockets or a simple bag with handles.

FabricDirect.com has a large array of fabrics to make your special market tote.

Indoor/Outdoor fabrics give durability and are water repellent.  Check out our Outdoor fabrics, such as Sunbrella, Sunrise Water Resistant Canvas and the Indoor/Outdoor Decorating Fabrics.

Maybe you would like a light weight market tote that you can easily fold up small and stick in your purse or pocket.  We have the perfect fabrics….

45″ & 60″ Broadcloth, Habatai China Silk, Polyester Lining, Muslin and Cotton Ripstop Fabric would all be great choices.

We’d love to see what your tote looks like that you take to Farmer’s Markets.

If you have questions about any of our fabrics, please ask!

    Is there anywhere on your website where I can find laundry instructions? I’m particularly interested now in knowing whether or not the 100% rayon is machine washable or dry clean only. Thank you.

      Hi Judy
      Thank you for your interest in Fabric Direct. When you click on the “Specs” tab, many of our fabrics have Fabric Care instructions.
      Rayon fabrics do shrink unless it says specifically that it is machine washable. I’d suggest dry clean or hand wash in cold water with very mild detergent and air dry.
      When I’m unsure, I always test a small sample of my fabric to make sure how it will wash.
      I hope this helps and if I can assist you further, please let me know. Thank you for visiting FabricDirect.com
