Edible Boston is always looking for great people who are passionate about promoting, celebrating and connecting the region we call home, the food we eat and the people who grow and make it.
Edible Boston is a nationally-affiliated and award winning publication in print since 2007, backed by a network of 80 like-minded Edible publications around the country and in Canada. We’re the go-to source throughout eastern Massachusetts for CSAs and farmers markets, locally sourced food and beverages, farm-to-table restaurants, food access and education, sustainable food and related eco-friendly products and services that promote a healthy lifestyle.
