edible As we live, so we work…

At the heart of this amazing company is a commitment to sustaining the unique local flavors and economic viability of the communities they serve. As individuals and professionals, they live, breathe and literally, eat these values. The values are reflected in their work and in how the owners live their lives.

This company, founded by Tracey Ryder and Carole Topalian is based in Ojai and has a fantastic story . They are now touted as the largest publisher in the world focusing on the local food movement.

Edible currently produces stunning magazines celebrating the local foods movement in over 80 cities and are adding 10 a year. The company started in 2002 and have been successful because of their ‘hyper-local’ focus within a city or region.

We are thrilled to have Edible here in the 805 and if you live in Ojai or Ventura County, Santa Barbara or San Luis Obispo, you have already seen the magazine that’s widely available, wherever you shop.

If you want to know more about Edible, you can contact Ron Wallace, the publisher of Edible Ojai and Ventura County right inside 805connect. He’d love to hear your food stories.
