There is nothing I love more about summer than farmers markets.
Well, maybe having all the windows in the house thrown wide open.
I love meeting local farmers, the actual people who grew the food.
Chicago is exemplary in their vast selection of neighborhood farmers market.
I frequent the Lincoln Square Market on Tuesday mornings under the Western Brownline stop.
After selecting our fine, weekly produce, I am often left with crates, containers, and baskets.
Most farmers prefer to keep the crates, but some are for keeps.
What to do with a growing collection of these baskets?
One idea came from Jimmyredhed.
He placed them under the sink to corral our sponges!

They also appear to be compostable so if they get beaten up or dingy,
you can take them out with your daily compost.
Do you have any other uses for these wooden/paper crates?
