Hauling Cargo from St. Lawrence Market

On quite possibly one of the last sunny Saturday’s of 2009, I made a quick trip to St. Lawrence Market to shop for a BBQ.

First on my list was a crate for the rear rack of the Globe bike I have on loan.
I spotted a stack of small crates at one of the vendor’s tables. Not surprisingly, I was the first person to ask to buy a crate from her. A few dollars later and I had a wooden crate… then a whole bunch of dollars later and I had lamb’s shoulder from Rowe Farms, some asparagus, sweet potatoes and an apple strudel.
Bungee cords and a wooden crate are all it takes to turn your bicycle into a grocery hauling vehicle:
