Nashbar Townie Panniers

Able to carry a grocery bag. Folds up flat when not being used. 2000 Available in 3 colors.

I bought a pair of these ($19.99 ea) for grocery commuting but I found them a little short for the typical brown bag. I was able to carry 3 bottles of Chimay on one side in addition to some groceries which was quite heavy. Too much weight and they can sag a bit. They are easy to connect to the typical rear rack and the strap handles allow you to use them while shopping.

If you're seriously into commute-shopping, you might want to check out the bags from Trek as recall them to be a little taller and hold more.
