costermonger: noun
cos·​ter·​mon·​ger /ˈkästərˌməNGɡər/
: a person who sells goods, especially fruit and vegetables, from a handcart in the street.
The Costermonger is the essential market tote designed as a backpack. Fill it up with wholesome goodies from the farmer’s market or Neighborhood Produce, leaving your hands free to pet every willing dog on your walk home. This is a simple satisfying sew that uses minimal fabric making it ideal for using up some of your stash or trying something new, like waxed canvas or dry oilskin. This is an unlined bag.
