About Edible Blue Ridge

Edible Blue Ridge

Welcome to Edible Blue Ridge, the culinary magazine dedicated to celebrating Central & Southwestern Virginia’s unique regional food scene, with a focus on our many farms, orchards, wineries, farmers’ markets, specialty shops, eateries, food artisans and home cooks.

Edible Blue Ridge is part of an established national network of locally owned publications.  Our mission is to promote local foods and persuade people living in the region (and those who visit) that fresh food from the area is the most delicious, exciting and healthy choice when it comes to the menu or the pantry. We want consumer dollars to stay close to home by supporting the local farmer, culinary entrepreneur and chef. Our stories are people based and
our pages are filled with distinctive color photography, enticing artwork and mouth-watering recipes.

Edible Blue Ridge distributes 10,000 copies of each quarterly issue through more than 50 select grocers, restaurants and retailers across our territory. Our readers are savvy, quality conscious consumers of many goods and services, and a message in Edible Blue Ridge is your business’ most targeted, cost-effective way to speak directly to them.

Welcome to the Edible Blue Ridge community. We hope you are as excited as we are to celebrate the abundance of this region.
