Market season is in full swing, and our market bags have been getting a workout every week, toting back fresh produce and baby plants for the garden. We have been rather wanting a market basket, which would protect fragile things like cherries, eggs, and seedlings, so we were really taken with these Fair Trade baskets from Ghana.
Baskets of Africa is a shop that focuses on African basket weavers and their work. They are members of the Fair Trader Federation, and they work with local cooperatives and weavers. They carry baskets from many different countries: Kenya, South Africa, Swaziland. We especially like these colorful market baskets from Ghana, which are beautiful and functional too.
