About

Now entering our seventh year of publishing, edible Memphis is a quarterly magazine that celebrates the harvest of the Mid-South. Filled with engaging stories and enticing photography, we help define the local cuisine, promote the local bounty, and build ties between farmers, food artisans, and the rest of the community. By demonstrating just how much the Mid-South offers, our magazine and website point readers toward the region’s seasonal foods, food shops and restaurants.

Although our magazine is called edible Memphis, we include the entire Memphis metropolitan area including counties in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi and our reach extends to readers and subscribers across the country and around the world via the internet and our community of publishers and media outlets including edible FEAST.

edible Memphis is published by Rich Ground Media, LLC under the direction of Melissa & Kjeld Petersen and is a part of Edible Communities, Inc. (ECI). The mission of ECI is to transform the way consumers shop for, cook, eat and relate to local food. Through its printed publications, websites and events, ECI strives to connect consumers with local growers, retailers, chefs and food artisans, enabling those relationships to grow and thrive in a mutually beneficial, healthful and economically viable way.

Join us in celebrating the abundance of local food from right here in the Mid-South, season by season!
