Grocery Getter! Tote It.

Montana Made. Sustainable Shopping.

Our Market Tote Bag is THE contemporary reusable grocery bag. Its measurements are the same as the old classic 'Brown Paper Bag.' This is a large tote bag of outstanding quality compared to the typical cheap imported junk they hawk at the grocery store.

STRONG BOTTOM.
Our handles are stitched completely around the sides and bottom of the bag with double box stitching at all stress points. No more worries about the bottom of this grocery bag ever blowing out!

HANDS-FREE SHOULDER CARRY.
Extra-long carry handles allow you to carry the grocery Market Tote on your shoulder. We've seen folks carry the tote like a backpack! And as spacious as this tote bag is, you can use one Red Oxx Market Tote instead of half a dozen flimsy plastic grocery bags that may end up as modern tumbleweeds! Just remember to keep it in your car so you'll have it once you get to the store. Another great way to remember taking your bag with you is hang it over the front door knob.

SHORTER HANDLE CARRY TIP IDEA.
Don't like to shoulder carry your Tote? Straps seem too long? Drags on the ground? No problem. Simply place the bag upright on the ground and drape each carry handle to your left and right. Now grasp each handle and cross them over each other. Next slip each handle under the other and pull the end loops upwards. You can now carry the Market Tote by the crossed-over loops, thus shortening the straps by about a third of their length. See photos tab at left for details.

STANDS UP BY ITSELF.
The tough 1000 denier military grade CORDURA® nylon is water-resistant and twice as strong as standard nylon. And of course, you have a dozen vibrant colors to choose from...

The heavyweight 1050 ballistic nylon on the sides helps this shopping tote to "stand up" and keep its shape so you can easily fill it, or empty it, a handy feature not seen on any reusable grocery tote we know of. Grocery clerks love this handy feature.

The Market Tote Bag has been used for potlucks (it's large enough to hold a 5 Qt crock pot), as a pool and beach bag, a utility bag and even to and from arts and crafts classes crammed with art supplies. Great for hauling melons, pumpkins, squash and other large and awkward shaped vegetables or wrapped cuts of meat like roasts, chickens or quarters, and whole fish that would stretch a regular grocery bag to it's limits (and likely bruise your food).

BOUND AND BAGGED.
Places where two separate pieces of fabric are stitched together are then bound, that is, we take a long piece of one inch wide nylon webbing and fold it over the edges of the two pieces and stitch them together, this creates a strong seam, or binding, that prevents the pieces from unraveling and gives a clean finished look.
All of our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in competitors grocery totes that brag of "binding" their edges.

CARRY-ON PERSONAL ITEM? YOU BET!
The ladies love using it as a sewing tote, crochet bag or knitting bag. Yoga lovers carry their yoga mats, sweats, and other accoutrements in the Market Tote. Then there are those adventurous types who take it with them around the world and use it for more things than we could ever think of. Since they fold flat, packing several Market Totes along as "luggage extenders" means you can carry-on as a personal item and bring home extra goodies and gifts from your travels.

FOR SCHOOL, TOO.
Even students find the Market Tote useful as a college book bag. Its sturdy build and just right size easily holds a laptop, tablet, several large textbooks, writing notebooks and project files. Toss your pens and electronic gadgets such as chargers into a Nomad or Lil Roy and all your lose items are organized. Buy two or more Totes, you'll always find a use for more than one!

EASY TO CLEAN.
Totes exposed to food can get dirty quickly. Blood, dirt, vegetable matter, crushed fruit, spilled juices or soda, sticky candy, leaking jars and bottles can gunk up the interior of your Market Tote. Fortunately, it's a piece of cake to clean your Tote. Simply fill a sink, bucket or tub with warm soapy water (we like Dr. Bonners), grab a nylon bristle brush and lightly scrub your bag clean. Simply turn it inside out to scrub out the interior. Then rinse both sides in warm water and hang up to dry on the shower head or outdoors on laundry line. Never use a machine dryer to dry any Red Oxx bag and always avoid solvents or harsh industrial cleaning agents as they will damage the lining.

"Go Green, save a tree, recycle some oil, use, reuse and well, reusable forever, the Red Oxx Market Tote Grocery Bag. Sustainable shopping indeed!"

Or as the locals at the Farmer's Market say, "If you turnip, lettuce bear your fruit..."

 The Perfect Tote
By Mandi Graham, , July 7, 2006

The Red Oxx Tote Bag is the only tote I will use. It's the perfect size for just about anything and the straps are the perfect length; not too short but not too long! It's strong and durable and easy to keep clean! I use it when I go boating, to the grocery store, for laundry, when going to my son's sporting events, work and just about anything I'm doing!Thanks Jim and Perry! You guys rock!
 
 Much better than the freebies!
By Steve Duncan, , April 7, 2006

This tote bag is, well, a tote bag. But it's better.We've gotten several giveaway bags but they're usually not very robust. They're also not very deep relative to their footprint, so when you put them down things tend to tumble out of them. Of course, a deeper bag can invite the same thing if you overload it but depth is nice for things like 2-liter and wine bottles. This tote bag is deeper, and the handle-straps go all the way around. You won't hesitate to load it up with firewood or bricks if the need ever arises. The thing I noticed about the straps was their softness and suppleness. This makes them more comfortable than the stiffer stuff you always find. The bag is also water proof - water proof enough to carry water in for short distances, like to douse the errant spouse ;-)So, while it might seem a bit excessive to buy a tote bad, trust me - this is way better than the freebies!
 
 Tote Bag
By Gary Ustik, , December 13, 2005

Just received the tote bag you made for me out of ballistic, it's great. The tote is so well made, light in weight and handy that I will be placing an order for 4 more today. I will be retiring my Filson totes to Ebay.
