Targeted Demographic


“We see Edible Santa Barbara as an essential partner in our efforts to both grow our own business and promote the rich and diverse local food and beverage culture in our region.”

– Brian Thompson, Telegraph Brewing Co.


“Edible is the best publication around these days. Really, it’s incredibly honest and informative.”

“[Edible publications] have become the unofficial literary journals of the farmer-writer movement.”

– The New York Times


High-Visibility Ads

Our readers tell us that they “read the magazine cover to cover—even the ads.” That means more exposure for you.

Our readers seek out, save and savor every copy of Edible. These magazines are valuable reference material that are not discarded like general interest or advertising heavy glossy publications.


Because we don’t review restaurants or run fluff stories, our readers trust the businesses we write about and the businesses that advertise with us. That means they are more likely to become new and loyal customers for you.


“Bedell’s association with [Edible publications] allows us to reach a targeted audience who are genuinely interested in learning more about the beauty and passion of the wine and food culture. It is the core of our advertising program.”

– Trent Prezler, Bedell Cellars, Cutchogue, NY


What Our Readers Tell Us (and they’ll tell you, too!)


“We never throw an issue away—we keep them all and use them over and over again.”

“We pick up extra copies from local advertisers and mail them out to our family members who have moved away so they feel close to home still.”

“Out of all the magazines we subscribe to, Edible Communities publications are our favorites.”

“I thought I knew everything about the local foods and farmers in my community but I learn something new every time I read your publication.”

“Every time I realize another issue is due I start watching the mailbox for it. I can’t tell you how much I look forward to reading it and you have never disappointed me. Every issue is great!”



Why Print?


Print magazine audience builds long after publication date.

Print magazines reach more households with $150K+ than any other medium.

Brands that advertise in print magazines achieve greater increases in brand awareness, favorability and purchase intent than online or TV advertising.

Print magazine advertising inspires readers to take action— regardless of ad position or size.
