Print is alive. Print resonates. Print is tangible.


At edible Memphis, our business is selling stories. In every issue we introduce our readers to the people, places, businesses, and organizations that are a part of our local-food landscape in ways that are positive, creative and exciting. Our advertisers are a part of that story too.

We place a high value on engaging stories, outstanding photography and design, quality paper and a print quality that conveys warmth, credibility and permanence. It costs more to do it this way, but we like to think that we’re creating a quarterly reference to the past, present and future of our local-food movement. A reference that will saved and used often.

Our readers can see and touch your ad in a placement that supports and enhances your message.

Simply put, print works.

Our mission is to change the world by helping to grow a strong local-food economy that makes Memphis and the Mid-South more sustainable, healthy and prosperous. Grow your business in the pages of edible Memphis and be a part of the change.
