edible Kansas City — A Locavore’s Rag


A quarterly magazine that celebrates the local food scene, producers and artisans of Johnson, Wyandotte and surrounding counties in Kansas as well as Platte, Clay, Cass, Jackson and surrounding counties in Missouri.

Since April, 2013, Missouri and Kansas “locavores” have had a magazine to call their own. Brimming with engaging stories, mouth-watering recipes and enticing photography, edible Kansas City celebrates the diverse foods and delicious cultures of the Greater Kansas City metro area. The quarterly magazine is available at grocery stores, newsstands, farmers markets and restaurants in and around Kansas City. This quarter’s iteration is focused on apples and has an article devoted to Food Day and the Apple Shares and other events around the Kansas City area.

“We are so excited to be able to provide a forum for the stories of our region’s rich food traditions and the people who are preserving and expanding upon those traditions today,” note edible Kansas City publishers Tracey Russell and Tamara Marler. “Folks love to eat good food, and, more and more, they want to know where that food comes from. Edible Kansas City helps foster that knowledge and builds connections within our local food community.”

In the pages of edible Kansas City, readers meet local farmers, foragers, vintners, brewers and artisans, visit the kitchens of their favorite regional chefs, find updates on policies affecting local food production and discover new recipes for each season’s freshest ingredients.

Russell and Marler, gardening fanatics and food lovers, are passionate about the mission of promoting locally sourced food and flavors. The diversity of Kansas City and surrounding counties is what makes this region so wonderful and delicious!

edible Kansas City is part of the growing network of Edible Communities magazines. Edible Communities is the leading network of publications dedicated to the local food movement. Edible Ojai, launched in 2002 by Tracey Ryder and Carole Topalian, was lauded by Saveur magazine in 2004 as the model for what a regional food publication should be. That recognition led Ryder and Topalian to found Edible Communities, Inc. to help other local publishers explore the foods farmed, raised, tended and produced on family farms, by small growers and artisans across the country. In May, 2011 the James Beard Foundation awarded the group with its first-ever Publication of the Year Award. Edible Communities now licenses over 70 locally owned and operated titles across the U.S. and Canada.
