My Texas Market September 2016 Subscription Box Review 

img_2095

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!!!).

First look! My Texas Market does a great job at presentation and everything arrived safe and sound.img_2097

There was shredded paper and bubble wrap to keep the products from breaking.

Everything in my box! It all looks so good. I always have a hard time trying to decide what to try first but I usually go for the sweet stuff.

September’s theme was “Back to School”, which is pretty cool since I work at a school. Some of the products this month will be used at work!

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.img_2145I review several book boxes and if I ever have time to actually read one of my books I will make sure to use this lovely bookmark from ATX’s Sweet Time Design. These are hand-stamped by owner Chelsea on flatware she finds at antique shops and vintage thrift stores around Austin.

I love granola and keep a steady supply of it on hand at all times so I was over the moon when I saw Kitchun’s No-Grain-Ola in not one but TWO different flavors! I decided this was more like trail mix and so I brought it to work for snacking right out of the bag. Both flavors are delicious!

You’re the Apple of My Chai and Holy-Coco-Cacao!


How gorgeous is this Goddess of the Sea Bath Soak from Sam Wish? Hand made in small batches here in Austin out of natural and organic ingredients, this soak has spirulina and gives the bath water a natural aqua color! I haven’t tried it yet but the scent is an uplifting blend of bergamot, marjoram, and clary sage. Even the bubble-wrap packaging was cute!

img_2143Did I mention I work at a school? I spend 8 hours a day teaching preschoolers at a public school so there is an endless supply of icky bugs. Hand sanitizer is a necessity and after the initial blast of alcohol, this one from Sasha’s Hand Poured left my hands smelling lovely. I adore the natural scent of lavender plus this one has aloe to keep it from drying out my hands.

It’s time to start fall baking and the gluten-free Create-A-Muffin Mix from Whole Note will come in handy on busy school nights. I can just mix it up with eggs, milk, oil, and any stir-ins such as blueberries or chocolate chips and nuts. Come on cooler weather!

I don’t know how My Texas Market does it. Every. Single. Month. They put out awesome boxes with great value and products that I never would have discovered on my own. 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. This month’s box had items from Austin and Cedar Park, Katy, and Dallas. 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? I’m having a hard time choosing!
