misswhimsy:  packing peanuts? They will be lightweight but take up space. You should be able to get them free from somewhere. Many businesses give them away because they accumulate so many.

I am assuming that you can’t see through gaps in the side of the crates. The vegetables will cover the top. If there are gaps in the sides line the crate with burlap or some other rustic fabric first.

fillers such as hay, or straw, even an empty box or styrofoam block covered in a fabric or painted a color to blend in.

misswhimsy:  straw? that would go with the rustic theme I assume you’re having if you’re desplaying vegetables… or burlap?

misswhimsy:  I think I’d lean toward shredded paper 🙂  If you know someone who works in an office, there’s probably an overabundance of it that would just get thrown away otherwise.
