If you shop at any of the local health food stores, frequent locally-owned restaurants, or spend time in just about any Santa Cruz-based business whatsoever, chances are you’ll have spotted Edible Monterey Bay.   Visually captivating enough to be mistaken for a toney Bon Appetit or the
like, this complimentary quarterly food-focused magazine is hard to miss.  Yet this publication stands unique in focusing less on the recipes and more on the farmers, fishermen, chefs and food artisans who provide the ingredients that bring Santa Cruz culinary creativity to life.

Edible Monterey Bay is a member of Edible Communities, Inc., a family of seventy or so editorially rich, community-based, local-foods publications in distinct culinary regions throughout the United States and Canada.  Editor and publisher Sarah Wood founded our local version on the belief that every person has the right to affordable, fresh, healthful food on a daily basis and that by connecting consumers with local producers,  we become more conscious of our choices and the impact they have on our community.

Wood, a former editor-in-chief of a national financial publication, has had a life-long passion for food, cooking, people and our planet.  She could not be happier than to now be writing and editing articles about the Monterey Bay foodshed and the amazing people who help make it so vibrant and diverse.

And what better way to celebrate year one of living Edibly, then with a farm-to-table dinner and a great opportunity to meet some of our local food heroes?  Don’t miss the chance to join Edible Monterey Bay and leading local farmers, chefs and visionaries on Saturday, October 13th at glorious Live Earth Farm for an unforgettable evening of the best of Monterey Bay.  I’ve been to one of Sarah’s parties, so I can assure you first hand it’s not to be missed!   For more details and to purchase tickets, visit Edible Monterey Bay.
