Mercado – Protect Your Produce

Scientist and San Francisco foodie, Darya Pino, loves buying fresh produce at her local farmer’s market but hates when half of her goods are damaged during their trip home. We teamed up with Darya and her blog, Summer Tomato, to build Mercado, the ultimate farmer’s market bag, with mesh pockets to protect delicate fruits and veggies, two elastic loops to hold bottles in place and 6 small, 2 medium and one large compartment to keep everything organized. A wide adjustable strap lets you choose the right length for carrying, so that you’re as comfortable as your produce! The structured mesh holds shape of bag whether worn or placed on ground. Mercado also has 2 small exterior pockets for quick access items (cash, keys, etc.). Mercado was invented by Peter Wachtel from Buffalo, NY with 738 influencers and are sold for $24.99.

Sliders – Grill with Skill

Make your summer cookouts a knockout success. Sliders are a set of 4 double-prong skewers that keep food secure, even while rotating on the grill. The ceramic sliders stay cool enough to touch and guide food off easily. The heat resistant ceramic handles guide food off and keep your hands clean and the non-slip rubber gasket keeps sliders in place when not in use. Sliders were invented by Tim Hayes of Lakewood, OH with 514 influencers and are sold for $24.99.
