Edible Santa Barbarais a quarterly magazine celebrating the abundance of local food and wine throughout Santa Barbara County.
Santa Barbara County has its own unique food traditions—from Santa Maria Barbecue to Santa Barbara Spot Prawns and the world class local wines that accompany them. And our region’s commitment to healthy living has long been on the forefront of what people eat.
Edible Santa Barbara is entirely locally owned and operated. And with our membership in Edible Communities, we are able to combine the synergy of a national publication and a hip, locally written insider’s view of the food and beverage producers and purveyors throughout the region. We shine the spotlight on our exemplary farmers, fishermen, ranchers, winemakers and community food programs—we savor the delicious diversity of Santa Barbara.
There is a growing national movement that is encouraging people to eat more locally grown and locally produced foods. By eating locally, we help sustain the small family farms that grow these foods and we enjoy food that is fresher and healthier for us and for our environment.
