Roaming Local Review- Brooklyn (Artisan Food Subscription Box)


I've tried many food subscription boxes over the years, but I'm just going to put it out there... this one is the best, by far.

Over the holidays I was contacted by Roaming Local asking if I wanted to review their new artisan food subscription box, and I was hesitant. I've received many boxes in the past (some for review, and many that I bought) and while they were nice, they just weren't memorable. And the ones that I paid for, I didn't end up renewing the next month. Mediocre food that was often sample-sized or full of ingredients that I didn't want to eat. And boxes that just didn't have any "heart." But, I agreed to try it, especially after finding out that this box's theme was from Brooklyn, and I'm glad I did.

Roaming Local is a bi-monthly artisan pantry and specialty food box that includes 6 full-size food items. Each month they choose a new city to highlight, and pick products that are made there (YAY local!) The boxes are $59 bi-monthly, including shipping. And if you use the code FIRST40, you can get your first box for $40. They also offer discounted rates if you sign up for more than one box at a time. The next box ships in February 2016, and I can't wait to find out which city will be next.
