I would look for a rack that is designed to actually carry things, like panniers, etc. These have wider spaced braces, to help keep stuff out of your wheels.
Kickstands are debatable, as to type. I prefer a standard Greenfield, for ease of use.
Foldable baskets would be what I already have. Grocery Panniers from Performance, because they hold a lot, are light, and fold completely flat when not in use. They also do not rattle. Folding then completely flat only involves a few monkey balls. They are also very light weight.
