AD INFO: Advertise & Promote

IT’S ALL ABOUT LOCALS.

Since 2013, 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 artisans, makers and other entrepreneurs.

The magazine has built on established branding that’s easily recognized by the logos and simple message: ”Choose LOCAL First”. GO LOCAL has been going strong since 2010 and generates around 500 million gross impressions annually.

Made Local Magazine (March/April 2024 issue) was my morning reading, perfect on a gray, drizzly morning. So much spring and smiles in all the articles. Is it my imagination that this edition has a new “feel” to it? The Future of Farming: excellent and educating. Fresh Finds makes me want to shop at Jupiter Foods. And the crowning gem with Nature’s Apothecary story: what a beautiful, innovative, and dedicated offering to the community. What an important role Made Local Magazine and GO LOCAL offers our community. Thank you for the hard work and caring you put into highlighting community gems of Sonoma County.”
