What's in a My Texas Market Box? Here's Three Box Examples!

My Texas Market is a subscription box sending farmer's market, handmade and small business products from artisans found solely in Texas. It's an excellent way to get unique items and delicious specialty foods especially if you live nowhere near Texas. Like me.

I have a ton of family in Texas so I've been there many, many times over my life and if there's one thing I can say about it, it's that their food is amazing. It seems to encompass all that I think comfort food should be and it's probably a good thing I don't live there because I always come home about five pounds heavier than when I left.

The Cost: $35/month plus shipping (It's $44.90 total to WA)

What You Get: A combination of wholesome and homemade specialty food products, handmade candles, soaps, or other beauty products or other health and wellness items and/or sustainably-sourced coffee and tea, unique crafts or locally made chocolates and candies.

If you're wondering what comes in a My Texas Market box, I have several to show you right here to show you a broad example of what you'll find.

They say that the best way to know if you will like a subscription box or not is to get one for three months. So here is three months of my My Texas Market boxes so you can see the wide swath of products you can get.

January 2017 "Rise and Shine"

District Roasters Farmers Market Coffee
Blue Heron Farms "Fake it Til You Make it" Mug
Bona Dea Gluten Free Pancake Mix
The King and I Blueberry Whipped Honey
The Tiny Collection Cinnamon Bun Candle Tin

I thought this was a very complete box. The breakfast theme was perfect for us and that blueberry honey was to die for!
February 2017 "A Taste Of Texas"

Grapevine Grains Texas Two Step Cornbread and
Southwest Soup Mix
Sucklebusters Original BBQ Sauce
Country Road Canning Texas Beer Jelly
CatSpring Yaupon Tea Pedernales Green Tea

This was probably the most unusual box I've received from My Texas Market. It had only four items which is not the norm, however since the kit had both the soup AND the bread, it was more like five products anyway. The beer jelly was interesting and I love tea but had never even heard of Yaupon!
March "The Bee's Knees"

Gretchen Bee Ranch Sweet Orange Lip Balm
Mind Your Own Beeswax Citrus Sunshine Beeswax Candle
Moore Honey Beeswax Sticks
Desert Creek Honey
two hives honey + SRSLY Chocolate Honey Buttons

This month's box tops my list of best boxes of all time. It was like hitting the jackpot! The Desert Creek Honey is fantastic and as a bee-lover (I garden!) everything in this was pure perfection. Everything was exceptional quality.

As you can see most boxes have five items each. There's a mix of food, drink and home items.

VERDICT: I like My Texas Market a lot because they tend to contain things you won't find in any other box. It's also a great way to get some fantastic homemade farmer's market type goodies. The downside is that you usually can't find a way to get more when you love something. I find that I tend to prefer the boxes that aren't only food but I always like getting the food products because they're inevitably delicious. I've attended many parties bringing food using products from My Texas Market and everything has been a hit so far.

I highly recommend My Texas Market especially for foodies, those missing home or anyone who loves to get their hands on small business products. It's a great box for yourself or to give as a gift. It especially makes a great gift for a coworker because it's NOT focused on beauty like so many subscriptions can be. It's very unisex and will always have something for everyone.

If you would like to subscribe, use code 10FIRST to get 10% off your first box. It's a lot of fun, trust me!

Oh, and since I didn't finish this post before I got another box, here's a bonus example of the April box!
The April 2017 box had:

JammitJam Blackberry Star Anise Merlot Fruit Spread
Nature Favors Texas Bluebonnet Garden Kit
Terra Verde Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar
Luna Tigre Bluebonnet Soy Candle
Kuhdoo Soap Texas Bluebonnet Soap

SIGN UP by JUNE 4th to get the FATHER'S DAY BOX!! Yes, it's so exciting it needs caps!

Here's what My Texas Market says about the box:

"The June box is curated around the theme "Bourbon and BBQ." This box is PERFECT for Father's Day!!! The June box is all food, and will include BBQ seasoning, bourbon honey glaze, bacon caramels, bourbon cookies, and this unbelievable pineapple habanero hot sauce from Bravado Spice. Made with fresh fruit and peppers, this sauce is perfect for marinades, meat, seafood, on veggies, and as a fun twist to traditional recipes."

So there you have it! Sign up now for My Texas Market and get a box of delicious sent to your (or your dad's) door! Don't forget to use code 10FIRST

*These boxes were sent complimentary for review purposes. All opinions are mine. I genuinely adore My Texas Market and think its one of the best specialty boxes out there.
