Trendspotting: Farmers Market Chic

By Kat La Mantia | May 20 2024 | AdultsChildren'sGeneralAllBlog

From strawberry shaped paper lanterns to cabbage leaf plates and lemon slice bathmats, unique food-themed decor is one of 2024’s hottest trends! Maybe it’s because real groceries are so expensive, or maybe it’s just a craving for postmodern whimsy–either way, we’re on board.

If you’re curating a display of sardine tin throw pillows, butter stick earrings, or candles that look like ripe heirloom tomatoes, we have the books you need to add the perfect finishing touch! Check out some of our favorite titles down below that embody the organic, light-hearted vibes of what we’re calling “farmers market chic!”
