Hot or Not? Hook and Go Urban Shopper

Strolling the farmers' markets in Los Angeles, I'm seeing these contraptions everywhere, much more than in New York. Oddly, they're often hanging with plastic bags. Is that the point?

While farmers' markets in NYC seem to be congested with dogs and strollers, the markets here in LA get their heavy traffic from wheeled carts. And there are a surprising number of these Hook and Go carts ($59.95, Sur La Table) dangling with mulberries, apricots and other colorful morsels that haven't dared set foot near the fields of New York.
