Catalina Rozo & Melissa Clinard, recent graduates from the University of Florida created these cute Burlap Bags for Market Grown, a campaign to help local farmers in Alachua County, FL

"Market Grown is a campaign to support local farmers in Alachua County, FL. In order to help the farmers, we made burlap bags to be sold at the Farmers Market to create revenue. The bags feature screen printed designs of vegetables and fruits which are sold by the farmers. The bags are made out of burlap as a way to up-cycle existing materials found at the market. The inside of the bags are lined with colorful nylon fabric so they are water-proof for fresh produce. "
