Getting to know the Greater Sacramento region has been an absolute joy. The number of high-quality food, drink, farming, and artisanal businesses seems to be endless. The only downside to the “research” is my expanding waistline.

We have owned and operated edible Reno-Tahoe magazine for more than eight years. When 14-year-old edible Sacramento went dark in the summer of 2016, we decided to revive it. How could such an amazing community, the breadbasket of the United States, not have an edible publication covering the local food and drink movement? Even though I have to drive 1.5 hours over the pass to work in the territory, the Sacramento area is part of our foodshed. So it just made sense to purchase the title a year ago.

I want to thank all of the local business owners who have supported our efforts during this time. Since edible Sacramento is a complimentary magazine, we depend on advertising dollars to help us print these pages. And without their assistance we would not be able to tell the many important stories brewing in this area. So when you read through the pages of each issue, please make sure that you visit our supporters, and tell them you saw them in edible Sacramento magazine. Their support in our mission is the reason why we can bring you stories about all the hidden gems in our region.

We are extremely excited about a few new partnerships in the next few issues. These include Amador Vintners Association, Placer County Wine and Grape Association, and Downtown Sacramento Partnership. It means the world to us that local businesses are seeing the importance of what we are bringing to the community and supporting us as we continue to grow.

Dining, drinking, and farming businesses are booming from Nevada City, Roseville, and Auburn to Lodi, Davis, the Capay Valley, and the heart of Sacramento. We hope we can help all of them thrive in what truly is America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital.
