Edible Nutmeg is dedicated to celebrating the local food communities of Western Connecticut. Since 2006, Edible Nutmeg has been Connecticut’s source for information about regional food, farming, sustainability, and the local communities that support it.
The print edition is published quarterly and can be found in restaurants and cafes, grocery stores, farmers’ markets, bookstores, retail shops, fitness centers, hotels, and resorts throughout western Connecticut. Through local stories, photographs, and recipes, Edible Nutmeg helps readers engage with the food community of Connecticut. Farmers and fishermen, bakers and chefs, gardeners and beekeepers, cooks and connoisseurs all have a place within our pages.
