Quirky, one of our favorite websites, launched a new product today called ‘Mercado‘. Mercado is the ultimate farmers market bag designed and developed by the Quirky online community. We all love buying fresh produce from our local farmers market, but hate getting home to discover that our produce is bruised. With pockets to protect delicate fruits and vegetables, loops to hold bottles in place, and compartments to keep everything organized, Mercado will serve you well.
Mercado has 6 small interior pockets designed for smaller, delicate fruit, 2 medium interior pockets, 1 large interior compartment with 2 elastic loops to hold bottles in place and 2 small exterior pockets for quick access items like cash or keys. Mercado is made of mesh and cotton canvas. The structured mesh pockets holds the shape of the bag whether worn or placed on the ground. The wide adjustable strap lets you choose the right length for carrying, so you’re as comfortable as your produce!
Mercado is the 78th product designed and developed by the Quirky community since the company’s launch on June 2, 2009. Mercado is the dream of Quirky community member Peter Wachtel from Buffalo, New York, and was brought to life on Quirky.com with the help of 738 influencers.
Quirky engages participants to collaborate in every aspect of product creation from sketch to store. Anyone can participate on Quirky.com either by submitting their own product idea for $10, or by voting, rating, and influencing other people’s product ideas. Cooler still, 30 cents of every dollar generated from the direct sale of a Quirky product goes back to these influencers.
Quirky makes invention accessible by partnering with creative people around the world to bring new products to life. Mercado is available for sale in Quirky’s online store for only $24.99.
