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 10FIRST you can save 10% off 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!!!).
My Texas Market mentioned that some fan favorites from last year have made their way into this box and if there’s one thing I’ve discovered from this subscription it is the always fabulous Texas Hill Country Olive Company. I have tried their olive oils and flavored balsamic vinegars and they are hands down the best! I love this Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar and used it to make a dressing for a salad. The vinegar itself is from Modena, Italy, and the blackberry lusciousness was added right here in the heart of Texas.
Spring mix salad greens, feta cheese, craisins, toasted pecans, and a homemade creamy blackberry balsamic vinagrette.
I was wandering through the jam aisle at our local H.E.B. Central Market and saw this on the shelf and was so excited, telling my family “look, I got that in my box!”. Jammit Jam Blackberry Star Anise Merlot is a sophisticated take on a classic flavor and while I tried it on buttered toast it would be extraordinary on a cracker with Brie or cream cheese. I make blintzes every once in a while and I think this might just put them over the top.
Here are some other serving suggestions!
Luna Tigre Bluebonnet Soy Candle has a lovely floral scent and is made with 100% soy wax. This Austin-based company makes the candles in small batches and this size should burn between 15-18 hours.
I don’t really think of bluebonnets as having a scent and yet both this soap and the candle have a similar bright, floral fragrance. Kuhdoo Soap Co. Bluebonnet Soap makes this bar with saponified coconut oil, avocado oil, shea butter, organic goat milk, Texas raw honey, colloidal oatmeal, and high-quality phthalate-free fragrance oil.
Aww, a bluebonnet in a box! Nature Favors Texas Bluebonnet Garden Kit
The dirt is even in the shape of Texas!
There’s a little pot to place the mini-Texas seed inside. Then add water and wait for it to grow!
I ALWAYS enjoy getting my monthly taste of Texas! The items were perfect for the theme and any time I see Texas Hill Country Olive Company I do a little happy dance. Texas has some wonderful makers and this box features them to great effect. I love that My Texas Market takes the time to visit farmers’ markets across the state and then picks the best of the best!
