Our Mission

Edible East Bay is a quarterly magazine that celebrates the abundant local foods of Alameda and Contra Costa counties (or the EastBay, as we call it here in the San Francisco Bay Area).

At Edible East Bay, we believe that our food choices do make a difference – to our health, to the health of our planet, and to our enjoyment of life. With that in mind, we bring you news of our region’s family farmers, fishermen, food artisans, chefs, home gardeners, and others who have a dedication to producing and using sustainably produced, local, seasonal foods. In this magazine’s stories and images, we will let you know about great dining, day trips, food events, and festivals; great books to read; and great products to try

Edible East Bay is a proud member of Edible Communities, Inc., a vibrant network of locally owned and operated publications across the United States and Canada cultivating thoughtful, celebratory and colorful conversation around local food. Launched in 2002 by co-founders Tracey Ryder and Carole Topalian – and soon lauded by Saveur as the model for what a regional food magazine should be. Edible Communities now publishes in more than eighty communities offering a singular combination of local perspectives with a resounding national voice. In 2011, Edible Communities won the inaugural James Beard Award for Publication of the Year.
