Greetings to you, Wisconsin Foodies!
We wanted to introduce ourselves to you because we have something in common: Local food is important to us. It’s so important to us that we devote our entire magazine to it. Edible Milwaukee is a free quarterly publication, dedicated solely to the production, distribution, and consumption of food in Greater Milwaukee, Port Washington, Sheboygan, Racine, and Kenosha.
We wanted to give you a few updates on the things happening on our end, since we’re only a couple short months away from launching. The first big update is that our website has launched! At ediblemilwaukee.com, you’ll find information on how to subscribe to our magazine and how to support us through advertising (download our media kit here). You’ll also find an editorial preview of some of the columns you can expect to see when we launch in mid-May. Still have questions about who we are and what we do? Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. This weekend, we’re excited to attend two events. The first is the Urban Ecology Center’s 11th Annual Local Farmer Open House, happening on Saturday from 11:00-4:00. You know how they say, “know your farmer, know your food”? Here’s a chance to connect directly with those farmers and learn more about Community Supported Agriculture.
The second event we’ll attend this weekend is the Wisconsin Artisan Food Producers Association’s Inaugural Taste & Learn Artisan Food Event, also on Saturday from 12:00-4:00. Here artisans will not only give us a firsthand sense of Milwaukee’s taste of place through their delicious samples, they’ll also hold educational break-out sessions.
If you see us at either of these events, please say hello! And please, keep in touch with us as we get closer to our launch (mid-May!). For daily updates, “like” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ediblemke or follow us on Twitter attwitter.com/ediblemke.
