How to Choose a Harvest Basket

Whether you’re harvesting fruits and veggies or just shopping at the farmers market, a good basket is essential. A durable basket is easy to clean and can easily carry the weight of a bunch of produce. It also needs to be aesthetically pleasing, so it looks just as good empty as it does full of ripe tomatoes or fresh-picked corn. To find the right harvest basket, consider your budget and style, then look for a material that is food-safe for your harvested veggies or perfect for carrying long-stemmed cut flowers.

Wicker is a harvest basket option, but it can be difficult to keep clean if you’re slinging dirt-covered carrots in and out of the basket. If you want a beautiful and functional harvest basket, consider a basket made with natural wood fibers. For example, this vintage-inspired galvanized flower caddy from Gardener’s Supply Company is food-safe for your harvested veggies and makes a great display for your beautiful bouquets. It’s even rustproof and watertight, so you can use it to rinse your veggies or flowers outdoors before bringing them inside.
