Yours is the only magazine I habitually read cover to cover, read more than once, and collect. Very thankful for your existence!

The first issue of Edible Ozarkansas landed in my hands at a time when I was new to the culinary scene and hungering after the conversations of shared food culture and innovation. I remember holding the magazine up, with triumphant awe, and declaring “This is what I’m talking about!” Edible Ozarkansas continues to be just that, a gathering of people who feed themselves and others with the stories of what it means to be Arkansan. And the conversation is only just beginning.

I love the creative covers that I leave on my coffee table and in the guest bedroom for folks to enjoy. I appreciate that you have connected so many people who love this area for her great local food. I thank you for informing me and others of the people and places that make Northwest Arkansas special.
I always look forward to what will be on the next cover, who will write the articles, and what new food I should try.

Any movement to inform the public and change perceptions about a social issue is benefited by engaging, thoughtful, informative publications that support the mission. In this way, the push to inform people in Northwest Arkansas about their local food options has benefited greatly from the addition of a publication focused on Ozark food producers and options, and how readers can incorporate their new knowledge into their lives. ... Edible Ozarkansas is meeting a real need in our community.
- Laurie Marshall, freelance writer
Edible Ozarkansas finally connected the threads of what was happening in the food world in Northwest Arkansas.
We had movement, we had exciting things going on: now we have a food scene. Every time I open a new issue, I learn something about our roots, our food future, and meet people doing good work. Edible Ozarkansas is an amazing voice for everything I love about living here.
