It’s All About Locals.

For 8 years running, Made Local Magazine is the definitive local print and digital magazine about our LOCAL food system and economy, produced by the folks at GO LOCAL.

Made Local Magazine has a pulse on the real food, beverage, and entrepreneurial culture of Sonoma County, with high quality content that’s more on par with national publications.

Made Local Magazine tells the stories that people are increasingly wanting to be connected with. LOCAL farmers, ranchers, food and beverage producers, grocers, restaurants, and non-profits have a role in how our daily food makes it to our tables. We provide authentic LOCAL coverage that reflects the complexities of growing our local economy and feeding nearly a half a million people every day.


MAKE•GROW•EAT•DRINK

In addition to our longstanding feature story sections covering EAT, DRINK and GROW, in 2020 we added a MAKE section to spotlight stories on local manufacturing and artisans.

The magazine has built on established branding that’s easily recognized by the logos and simple message: ”Choose LOCAL First”. GO LOCAL is 12 years strong and generates 500 million gross impressions annually.
