About Edible Michiana
Edible Michiana is a quarterly magazine that celebrates the abundance and flavor of local foods across our nine-county region in Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan. We are part of Edible Communities, a nationwide group of locally published magazines that highlight the foods that makes that area unique. Each season we feature award-winning photography and engaging stories of our farmers and vineyards; food artisans and chefs; food-related businesses and experiences. As a community resource, rooted in social awareness on behalf of Michiana’s local food culture, we strengthen the link between farm and table. Each issue entices you to dig deeper into:
- Eating locally-grown, delicious, seasonal foods
- Learning about the people who bring this food to our tables
- Supporting school and community gardens, food banks and other efforts to provide universal access to healthy, sustainable food
- Enjoying the area’s wide variety of restaurants, markets and food-related festivals, events and classes
Michiana’s local food scene is amazing. Discover! Enjoy!

As we live, so we work…
At the heart of our company is a commitment to sustaining the unique local flavors and economic viability of the communities we serve. As individuals and professionals, we live, breathe and literally, eat these values. They are reflected in our work and in our lives.
Our mission is to transform the way communities shop for, cook, eat, and relate to the food that is grown and produced in their area. We value local, seasonal, authentic foods and culinary traditions. We strive to put a face on every farmer as we tell their stories and champion their efforts toward a more sustainable and safe food system.
Through our printed publications, websites, and events, we 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.
