Little veggie baskets

Posted by snappybob SaTexas (My Page) on

Can someone tell me where I might be able to find a supply of the little plastic baskets that they use at the market gardens and farm stands to display veggies in? Any suggestions on where I might look locally so I can avoid shipping? I did a goggle on market garden supplies but didn't find any. I'm being optimistic that I will have enough of a surplus this year to sell some veggies. Thanks

I have found that some of the local bigger produce markets will sell you from their stock. You may even find others in your community that need baskets and order together.

RE: Little veggie baskets

I bought some white plastic mini-storage bins at Wal mart 6"x4"x3". They are made like a lattice work and are found in the household/kitchen storage area and cost about 35 cents each in a pack of 4 as I recall. They hold about 1 qt and are washable and durable enough to last for years. I buy bulk rubber bands for squash and cucumbers, and use recycled grocery bags for everything else.
