My Texas Market July 2016

My Texas Market is a monthly subscription box containing 4-6 items from small businesses in Texas that focuses on small batch and artisan products that fit a monthly theme. Have you ever wandered around the farmers market and wondered what to buy? It’s like they selected the products for you and shipped them to your house! The subscription is $35 a month or you can choose a 3- or 6-month subscription and save a little dough. Right now if you enter promo code MAIL25 you will save 25% on your first box! You can also send the box as a gift or purchase previous boxes and some featured items in their Online Market. To subscribe to My Texas Market, click here. This box was sent to me for review purposes (thank you My Texas Market and Happy Birthday!!!).

First look! My box was beat up in transit but everything looked great inside! The packing and presentation are always top notch with this box.

The theme for July was “How Sweet It Is” and the products inside were geared towards helping celebrate My Texas Market’s first birthday.

I love the detail that goes in to the product info card. It not only lists each item and why it is a standout, but where you can get some more of your favorites.

Not only does My Texas Market send awesome “Made in Texas” products, they also give a portion of their proceeds to the Houston Food Bank.

My Texas Market sent 5 items this month. The products just look beautiful, don’t they? So colorful and fun!

First up was Outrageous Oatmeal Cookie Mix from Bona Dea. This is gluten free and allergy friendly as well as GMO free. I will have to save this for a few months because I do not bake in the summer. Ever. It just heats up my house too much, but I can’t wait to mix up a batch of chocolate chip oatmeal raisin cookies this fall!

This seasonally appropriate Patriot Pop from Cornucopia Popcorn in Austin has red cherry, white sweet, and blue raspberry flavors and disappeared faster than a 4th of July sparkler. I am going to need to make a little trip downtown and grab some of their other awesome flavors!

I am embarrassed to say that I was a little afraid to try Blue Heron Farm & Friends Original Cajeta because I am not crazy about goat cheese and thought this might have a similar foot stank smell but I was so wrong. This is the BEST caramel I have ever tried. It is so buttery and sweet and I need to get some vanilla ice cream ASAP so I can stop eating it by the spoonful. I guess I could dip some apples in it until I get to the store.

What birthday party would be complete without a candle? This delicious smelling vegan Cupcake Candle from EcoBabe has a great scent and good throw. Plus it looks so darn cute sitting on my counter.

If you were hoping to grab a second jar of The Peach Boys peach jam by EMZ Jamz you are going to have a long wait since it is out of season, but don’t cry because they have some other wonderful flavors to choose from! If you haven’t completely devoured this fresh tasting treat then try it with some brie or cream cheese on a cracker or mix with a little oil and vinegar to make a unique dressing for a summer salad.

This box continues to amaze me! I love the monthly themes, I love that this box can be enjoyed by both men and women (and teenagers, since they eat all my treats), and I especially love that these items represent our state so well. As for the value, try walking around your local farmers market and see how much you can get for $25-35 and I think you will see this is a good deal, plus you don’t have to wander around in the heat, or the cold, or the rain. I spent $10 just for one jar of pickles y’all so I know those products aren’t cheap. If you would like to give My Texas Market a try then click here and get ready to enjoy the best of the Lone Star State!

P.S. What was your favorite item this month?

  1. There’s not one single thing in this that I wouldn’t obsessively love. I’m trying not to drool over that cupcake candle. I think food scented candles are my personal kryptonite. Between your blog and your comments, you always make me smile, and that’s why you absolutely had to be one of my nominations today to receive the One Lovely Blog Award.

    Have a great day, darling!
