Enjoy these 15 crochet market bag patterns!
Have you ever made a crochet market bag? If not, let me tell you this is a must-make project for crocheters. I’ve rounded up 15 of them for you to try.
It’s time to get ready for Farmer’s Market season!
One thing I absolutely love about living in Hawaii is it’s always Farmer’s Market season around here. And we have several within a few miles of us that are so fun to shop at.
As we’re getting ready to move back to the mainland in a few months, we’re already talking about what we’ll miss about this beautiful place and the abundance of farmer’s markets is at the top of the list.
Since visiting these markets is a weekly occurrence around here, I knew I needed to make a crochet market bag of my own. After doing some searching, I decided to make this one.
It’s sturdy, fun to make and the end result is a market bag I am proud of.
I loved making it so much, I couldn’t stop. So I made a few finished ones to sell. You can purchase one in my shop soon!

Crochet Market Bag Free Patterns
1. Crochet French Market Bag
I have to include Two of Wands’ French Market Bag pattern first because it’s my favorite! I’ve made quite a few of these for myself and to sell.
Making this pattern and using the bag once it’s finished never gets old.
We recently went on a van camping trip here on the Big Island and before we left, we hit up our local farmer’s market and stocked up on fruits, veggies nuts and some yummy lilikoi juice.
I think the bag looks quite nice hanging up in the camper van, don’t you think?
I found this market bag pattern very easy to follow.
You can also purchase this pattern as a kit on LionBrand.com here.
2. Lacy Crochet Market Bag
This crochet shopping bag by Yarnspirations is considered an easy skill level. It’s made using mostly double crochet stitches and is worked up in a weight 2 yarn.
The spaced out dc stitches gives it a lacy look. Whip this up in red like they did, or any color you like. I think this would look so pretty in an off-white yarn.
3. Dishie-Lous Market Bag
The Dishie-Lous market bag from MJs Off the Hook Designs is made with, you might have guessed, Dishie and Dishie Twist from WeCrochet.
This easy crochet market bag pattern comes with a video tutorial.
The ad-free PDF which you can purchase, comes with extras including a photo tutorial, stitch chart and additional size.
4. Weekend Wanderer Mesh Bento Bag Free Crochet Pattern
I’m a big fan of 1DogWoof’s patterns and this crochet bag pattern is no exception.
It’s origami-inspired and perfect for not only your local farmer’s market but also the beach or even an everyday crochet tote.
The pattern for the Weekend Wanderer Mesh Bento Bag is so simple, it’s going to take just a few lines to explain it all. The magic is in the assembly. Basically, you want to crochet up a piece of fabric that has a length to width ratio of 3:1, and then fold it up into the bento bag shape, seam it, and secure the “handle”. That’s it!1DogWoof.com

10. Miller Crochet Market Bag

Crochet Market Bag Patterns – Paid
I’ve been pretty obsessed with LionBrand’s crochet kits lately. I ordered six of them and have finished 3 shirts for summer so far.
They have sales all the time on their kits (from 15% to 35% off), plus they often have their well-loved wonder wheel that you’ll find on their site. I’ve spun it before and gotten 35% off. What a great day for a yarn lover that was!
Here are a few crochet market bag patterns you can purchase as a kit.
11. Local Has My Heart Bag
There’s no better time than today to start supporting local businesses. Shop at famer’s markets (don’t forget your bag!), local restaurants that aren’t chains, makers and creatives (ahem, like myself) via Etsy or Pinterest.
Supporting local feels amazing and a way to give back to your community.
Express your support for local with the Local Has My Heart Market Bag.
