This weekend, That’s Cool Try & Buy Mart Pop Up offers a new experience in food sampling and local marketing in Venice, CA.
In order offer some harder to get products to a wider audience, “That’s Cool Try and Buy Mart” lets their visitors a chance to try various products before making the decision to buy.
They found that some products are just too expensive to get without being able to decide if you like them or not. But some vendors decided to offer potential customers a chance to try out their products before you buy them, hence the name Try & Buy Mart.
Last Thursday we were invited to the event, and it was worth every second. Each product had a backstory, offering a better understanding of what you were trying out. That combined with the products living up to their expectations made it an event I wouldn’t miss.
Below were some of the products we were able to try out:
Recess – @takearecess
Surprisingly incredible. It’s a CBD -infused seltzer with flavors that taste amazing and meant to calm the mind and lift the mood. There are two types of Recess drinks, one containing magnesium, and the other just hemp. Both are available in a lot of flavors.
Anyone skeptical of the effects of the magnesium and hemp, they’re stronger than you’d expect. I do have to say that I would definitely get these more often if their release was wider. In the mean time here’s some info below.

Dad Grass – @dadgrass
Probably the most fun of the products. They are offering samples with a roll your own joint station, spin-to-win wheel, buy product + apparel onsite.
was very chill, the representative was very nice, definitely stop by here before leaving. Highly recommend after a long week of work.
