I just wanted to drop a short note to let you know how much I've loved discovering your magazine! Having been an art director for trade publications for nearly 15 years, I have a pretty critical eye for print media and yours is really great. The photography is engaging and I think you really pull the reader into every subject you cover. I found myself interested in articles I normally wouldn't be, and I think that says a lot for your design and format.

The winter issue is many good things to eat!
– Marnie McArthur


I am so impressed with the spring issue of edible! There are so many great resources and articles in this edition. It always kicks a** but you gals continue to ramp it up to the next level! Thank you for highlighting women in ag and working with the food co-op, too! So, after you dropped off the magazine, they were all gone in about two hours.

I was at Nothing To It the evening you were talking about the launch of this new read. I thought, 'a fresh, forward publication for Reno. Sounds appealing.' When it arrived, I fell in love. The pages were crisp with the new food mindset, chock full of inspiration to eat and shop locally.

CONGRATS on your year plus in business! Edible Reno-Tahoe is such a great addition to the growing foodie scene. I love your magazine!

Picked up a copy of edible Reno-Tahoe at the Brooklyn Museum Egyptian Art event at the Nevada Art Museum ... love the mag, keep up the great job!
– R. Keith Rugg


I just picked up the latest edition at Whole Foods. Wow! You have done an amazing job. I am going to hang onto this magazine and consult it frequently. I imagine my copy will be dog-eared and tattered by the time your next edition comes out. You have a real dynamic going and I hope to see the magazine for years to come. I can't wait to tell my friends and family about it.
– Yvonne Reese


Your magazine just keeps getting better and better! Loved this issue! My 12-year-old son picked it up and was fascinated by the solar cookers. He wants to build one.
– Mark Kattleman


Our company made a commitment a year ago to advertise in edible Reno-Tahoe magazine to reach our target market of home gardeners and those who appreciate knowing how to produce their own food using quality gardening ingredients. With their help, we have grown our commitment to eight other Edible communities in the Western states.
