I LOVED THIS BOX!! I was not expecting it to be so good. I do wish there had been something other than foods. I thought I would receive a candle or lotion but they were all foods which was still VERY GOOD. I’m very happy with this box. I can’t wait for the next one to come in. It is a bite of Texas for real!
Ok Texans, we officially have a subscription box. Texas is not an easy culture to capture without being cheesy or insulting, but My Texas Market embodies the Lonestar State. First of all, the products come from small businesses across the state and they don't disappoint. Secondly, state pride comes through naturally without being obnoxious or overdone like it could be if a real Texan weren't curating it. Thirdly, 10% of all profits go to the Houston Area Foodbank.
That's what being Texas friendly is all about. We take care of our own.
Down to the nitty gritty:
The products that came in my Rodeo Box were BBQ Sauce, a High End Shaving Bar, Chocolate, Spicy Jam, Sustainable Pecan Wood Republic of Texas Magnet, and Beef Jerky. You don't even need to be Texan to love this box, you just have to like good food and quality consumables. It's also worth pointing out they are NOT afraid to send a heavy box, and of course it's bigger than any other box I've ever gotten.
I love this company, their mission, and the product! Support small business & subscribe y'all!
Ordered in July and when I placed order it was not clear on when seasonal boxes were shipped. So contacted company and told it was seasonal and would ship seasonally. I waited and now middle of October my recipient does not have her gift! Lack of response when I ask when it will be shipped. Had them contact me last week to verify mailing address and I replied with correct address and asked when I would get shipping confirmation and NO reply! Just contacted them asking when my box would ship and they said "Seasonal boxes ship in December" What?????
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Our seasonal Fall boxes were shipped starting the 2nd week of September. The reason you were asked to confirm the address was because the postal carrier had marked it as invalid. Once the address was confirmed we mailed out the box the following day. The box was then returned to us due to invalid address as the postal carrier was unable to find the location (we sent you the tracking number that states the invalid address). We emailed you back giving you an option for a refund or for it to be sent to another address. The Winter seasonal box will be shipped in December. We apologize for any miscommunication or inconvenience and we will be glad...
Like many boxes,some moths are good, other months are not so good.
I appreciated the variety of products included. I like it when a box can feature more than just the foodstuffs from a certain area. Although Texas does have some pretty amazing food! Everything in here was great quality, useful and the whole package made for a fun unboxing. I like to see what kinds of things curators decide to choose for boxes of this type. I think My Texas Market makes its way to the top of my list for excellence in curation for specialty, local boxes featuring area specific artisans. This is the kind of box that will give you a monetary worth right about the cost of the box or a little over but the true value is in the experience and discovery of new things you didn't know you needed.
Specialty boxes like this make wonderful gifts, too, so keep this in mind as the holiday season approaches.
