I used to do a lot of shopping at outdoor venues, like farmers markets, where basically it is cash and carry. I was able to borrow a relatives cart and I loved it!
This cart easily folds up to be placed into the back seat of a vehicle and then when I got to my destination I had my own personal cart!
In addition to the farmers market I also used this great cart to go to a beach/park and around the house.
This cart is large and roomy, plus very sturdy. It holds 150 pounds making it great to transport pet food and other large items from the car to the house. The real wheels are also nice and big so that they can go up steps, making it easier to bring up groceries to an upstairs apartment or to carry laundry and supplies into a basement. It is also great for trips on foot to the local market place.
I also understand that there is a liner that can be purchased so smaller things can be toted in the cart, without slipping through. This would probably be ideal for harvesting produce from the garden.
I did not end up picking one up for myself because it was a bit more than I wanted to spend for my purposes, as with shipping it is about $50, however if someone was to gift me one I would be more than pleased as this is a very useful cart!
