Explore Local Box answered...March 2021

Thank you for the question. Right now we not have a gluten free option.


Q: I'd love to send the Explore Local box as a gift, but only want a delivery every other month as opposed to every month. Is that possible?Asked by Katherine W., December 2020

Explore Local Box answered...December 2020

During the holiday time (November + December) we have a "Holiday Special" box on our website, that is a six month subscription that is shipped every other month - January, March, May, July, September, November.


Q: Hi, Just ordered box as a Christmas gift. Will you time it so it arrives as close to Christmas as possible or will it ship right away? Ordered on 12/12 and I don’t want it to arrived a week before. Asked by Renee M., December 2020

Q: How do you choose the businesses that you support? Is there a way to recommend any?Asked by Samantha D., November 2020

Explore Local Box answered...November 2020

We try to chose business that represent the city where they are made. Definitely small business or individuals who make the product whichever city we are exploring that month. I find a lot of the businesses at farmers markets in that city. We would love to hear of a business that you personally love. You can email us using the contact us button (we are not allowed to post an email address here). Thanks!

I received three months of Explore Local as a gift and loved it so much I started my own subscription! I enjoy sampling items from a specific city, and particularly love learning about small businesses. I've ordered items I especially liked direct from the manufacturers later, to directly support those businesses. There might be an item here and there that I'm not interested in, but I've happily used them as great gifts for friends. The packaging is nice and I love the included facts about the cities. Each box makes me want to travel!

Wonderful collection of handmade products from different parts of the United States. Packaging is modern with great colors! Would be a great gift this holiday season!

They should call this the Washington, DC

Not only did they send a very small selection of inedible products filled with fake sugar and two potholders, but they sent us two boxes in a row from the same city.

I ordered one for myself and one for a gift. My friend got a different state/contents than I did in Jan. I felt mine was worth the money and great selection. Hers seemed a little cheap or really tiny servings of everything 🤷🏻‍♀️

The box is great and is a great gift for someone. The only problem I had was that this gift was sent to the wrong address and the wrong person. I am giving it another shot though because the person who received it love it.

We liked the box but do believe it is over priced. There should be more to it.

Great way to support small businesses. I like that there are food products and items in the box. Lots of months there are items that go together. Like a candle from one maker and a rock candle holder from a different maker. Very thoughtful
