edible Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos is a bi-monthly publication that promotes and celebrates the abundance of local foods in North Central New Mexico. We value local, seasonal, authentic foods and culinary traditions. We celebrate family farmers who plant the seeds and work tirelessly to bring you the freshest local produce, the ranchers and poultry farmers committed to creating healthier and more sustainable methods of working with animals and the land; the food artisans who proudly create a creamy cheese and the wines to pair them with, and the local chefs who continually create to excite us with the unique flavors of this region. We at edible honor their dedication to using the highest quality, local, seasonal foods, and we want to share their stories with you.
Through our printed publication, website, and events, we aim to connect consumers with these local growers, retailers, chefs, and food artisans, enabling those relationships to grow and thrive in a mutually beneficial, healthful, and economically viable way. We are part of a growing national movement throughout this country that is encouraging people to eat more locally-grown and locally-produced foods. By eating locally, we help sustain the small family farms that grow these foods, we enjoy food that is fresher and healthier for us, and we help reduce the cost to the environment – and in dollars – of transporting foods over long distances.
Here in New Mexico we are blessed with an abundance of talented writers, and that just happens to be part of our mission, too: to present the unique voices of New Mexican food writers, and to coax from them the tales that don’t often get told. Through them you will find out about new products, old ways, thriving traditions or the renaissance of an old, must read books, food events and festivals, restaurants, markets – all of the things that have helped to make us a true culinary destination.
