Beautiful. Versatile. An Urban Southern Classic.

Inspired by the concept of the reusable grocery bag, the Market Tote was born out of a desire to make a bag big enough to fill up on a trip to the market, beautiful enough to take anywhere, and slim enough to never get in your way. Designed for distributed weight carry, the Market Tote can comfortably hold an astonishing amount and its two handle options make it easy to carry no matter what’s inside. 


  • Handcrafted in the U.S.A.
  • Full-grain leather, brass accents
  •  2 cut out handles


Measurements: 20” Tall, 14” Wide, 6” Deep
Deep Double Strap: 33 3/4" long


The rich, full-grain leather used for your Urban Southern product will come with its own unique marks not pictured here, as well as a slight variation in color from batch to batch.


When properly cleaned and conditioned every 4-6 months, this piece will hold up to daily, frequent use for a lifetime. Read our 3-Step “Love Your Leather” Care Guide.

Love this bag!

I already have the Market Tote in black, but I had to get it in this new run of black leather also! I love how the newest leather run is very pigmented and has a bit of a top coat, giving it a slight shine and making it a bit more study. I just love it! YouTube video placeholder
I Absolutely Love It!

I have the Legacy, which I absolutely love, but I’ve had my eye on the Market Tote for quite some time way before I got the Legacy. I first noticed it on a blog post from Urban Southern about traveling minimally, in fact that’s how I found the Urban Southern bags. I thought it might be a bit too big for me and the mini looks too small. I hesitated to order. Well, I finally got off the fence and ordered & I recently received my Market Tote. I picked the Matte Black. WOW! It’s such a great bag! The sizing is fantastic, it’s so practical yet beautiful, and this bag will last many years. I absolutely love it! I wish I would have ordered when I first found it. I’m trying to minimize my travel & knitting bags & purses down to a choice few and I feel that Urban Southern is such a good quality brand and will help me in this process. I’d rather have a few high quality beautiful bags that really fit my needs. Urban Southern, Thank you!


I have had this bag in all three colors....amazing quality, so beautiful, and so unique. It is a true workhorse. It is a great bag for a mom on the go, a teacher or any professional who has to lug around a lot of stuff. I usually keep it packed up and top it off with a smaller bag for quick trips in the store or restaurant. I recommend the five pocket crossbody for this or even the heritage fits nicely. You WILL get compliments!

The Market Tote in black was my Christmas present to myself

The Market Tote in black was my Christmas present to myself. I've been searching for a classic, black leather tote for work and stumbled across Urban Southern. I only carry leather bags so please believe me, this bag is exceptional. The leather is soft, thick, and smells amazing!! With other large totes I'm always digging to find "lost" items. But the Market Tote has such an awesome sturdy shape at the bottom so that items don't go missing. The leather is so supple, the top handles collapse in if the bag is not full. I agree with other reviewers, this bag is totally a work of ART! Thank you Urban Southern for making such quality items and for the complimentary key ring. I'm already shopping for my next bag.
