Dear Moonie,
 when crocheting in net stitch, in the round, it naturally increases.
therefore, your kickass net market bag? yeah.  it's a doily.  a lumpy red heart doily.

Hmmm maybe you could work a ribbon through the edge and have it shut that way?

How about you work a couple more rounds, but the first of these do a slip stich through three stitches at a time.  This should draw the bag together, making fabric ruches/puckers/pleats and then you can continue a few more rounds to make the bag have a sturdy top.  then it would look like you meant it, and be EXPANDABLE to hold more goods!   kinda like this idea (found the image on the web) but not in fabric:

the blue area is the additional crocheting you ould have to do, and the bottom patterned fabric is what you have already done.
