How Much? $39.95/month, plus $10 shipping. Prices in Canadian dollars. 
What’s in it? 4-6 hand-picked, small batch, Canadian products that you might find at your local farmers' market.

Market Mix is a new Canadian subscription box, based in Calgary. Each month, Market Mix sends the farmers' market to your doorstep. With Market Mix, you will receive hand-picked, small batch, local good, without having to go to all the markets yourself. Boxes may include a variety of treats, from candles to soaps and relishes to lotions. All products will be Canadian made!
Market Mix aims to get wholesome, local products to Canadians in a simple and delightful way – with a package full of goodies delivered every month! Buying from local producers stimulates the home economy and supports our neighbours, so Market Mix makes it easy and affordable.

Market Mix ships on the 15th of each month. Order by September 27th, and you will receive the October box. Their first box was "Canadian Summer" and there are a few left, currently on sale for $30, plus shipping. If you are interested, click here (this purchase is not a subscription). 

When I saw this box, I had to subscribe. I try to hit up my local farmers' market every Sunday, and I've never met a craft fair or gift show that I didn't like. Plus, you guys know how I feel about small Canadian businesses... Market Mix seemed like the perfect box for me!

The product info is affixed to the inside of the lid. Each box has a theme. September's theme is "Country Harvest". 

First look... and something smells amazing.

Medicine Hat Meat Traders Beef Jerky in Chipotle Lime ($7)
This jerk is made in Alberta from 100% Canadian beef. It's super tender and soft. This chipotle lime flavour was nice and not at all spicy.

Jack Pine Naturals The Great Outdoors ($9)
This is a blend of essential oils and witch hazel to keep annoying bugs at bay and help you enjoy the last days of summer to the fullest. Jack Pine Naturals is based in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.

CCBee's Naturally Hand-y Salve (2oz, $10) 
This salve contains organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, Albertan beeswax, therapeutic grade organic essential oils, vitamin E. It's perfect for dry skin and hardworking hands. CCBee's is based in Red Deer County, Alberta.

Natura Soy Candles Casa Essential Oil Blend Votive ($7.75)
Casa is described as "a welcoming, warm and inviting blend of Cinnamon, Orange, Nutmeg & Ginger". It smells like mulled cider and Thanksgiving. Natural Soy Candles is based in Okotoks, Alberta.  

Brassica Mustard Gift Pack ($23.95)
This gift pack includes four 60ml jars of Prairie made mustard. There is Cranberry Honey, Roasted Garlic, Dill and Horseradish. Brassica is based in Calgary.

Brassica is made from Alberta grown mustard seed and local honey. The company started when the founders were looking to make homemade Christmas gifts for friends and family. I love this story. I make jellies every year for Christmas gifts. Maybe I need to start a business!

The September Market Mix box included five items, valued at $57.70 Canadian. This box costs $49.95 per month, including shipping. I enjoyed my Market Mix unboxing. The products are all Canadian made, and the quality is fantastic. I like the mix of food, body, and home products. Four of the five products are from Alberta, which is all good and fine, but I really think the Market Mix team needs to come to Vancouver this fall or winter and spend a Saturday at the Nat Bailey Winter market, or hit up the Vancouver Make It! Show. I'm a little partial to BC made products! :)

October's box is on sale now and the theme is "Bath Bliss". There are only a dozen or so spots left, so sign up soon! Use my link to save 10% off your first month.
