Edible Austin Celebrates Its 5th Anniversary June 2nd
Edible Austin magazine, which promotes the local food culture and economy in Central Texas, celebrates its 5th Anniversary and 23rd issue this Saturday, June 2nd at the SFC Farmers' Market Downtown. Edible Austin will host a booth at the market where shoppers can pick up the Summer 2012 issue and sign up for a chance to win a birthday treat. At 9:30 am, Edible Austin will receive a special birthday wish during a short program at the market bandstand.
Over the last five years, Edible Austin has inspired readers through their award-winning magazine and events to support and celebrate the growers, producers, chefs, beverage and food artisans and other food professionals across a 30 county area. Through events like Eat Drink Local Week, Edible Austin helps connect local farmers and restaurants to serve locally sourced dishes on their menus while raising money for non-profits including Urban Roots and Sustainable Food Center, donating $52,000 in 2011. Publisher Marla Camp has personally invested in the success of the sustainable food community as a charter member and former chair of the Sustainable Food Policy Board.
