Let's go to the market!

Ok so spring has decided to skip London, and it's still raining and cold (despite the fact that England is suffering a drought, yes I know the irony!) However, I've been stubbornly creating things for spring and summer regardless of the weather! My shopping bags are of course suitable for every season, but during the spring and summer visits to the farmer's markets are much more appealing. Now I just have to find one in my area! In an area dominated by the major supermarkets Sainsbury's and Morrisons, and Tesco is under construction (they only got planning permission because they are building homes and a sports centre) and Polish supermarkets it's going to be a tough task and I may just have look a bit further outside my local area. It's not a farmer's market but maybe Brixton market is going to be my next stop! 

The yellow and orange bags are made of linen (the same linen as my feather and fan scarves) and the last one is made of this amazing Peruvian organic, fairtrade, naturally coloured cotton called Pakucho that I found the other day in Loop in Angel. It's very soft! The bags can be found in my Etsy shop:
