There are several patterns for Market bags. Just search the internet knitting sites or check on Ravelry to see what other people have made.
I purchased a kit from Knit Picks. Their Montavilla Market Bag is a kit that comes with the yarn you need to make two bags and instructions. The bag is a color work of subtle colors that look great together. I'm not sure I have enough yarn left over for another one but I could be wrong. Yarn balls can be deciving. It was fun to make and I didn't have a lot of ends to weave in. The knit picks yarn is called Simply Cotton Worsted and is about the same a Lion Brand Kitchen cotton or Sugar and Creams cotton.
I want to try some different colors to jazz it up a bit. I love bright colors.
