Shopping Local? Eating Local? MARKET Local!

Why? See below…

  • Keep your marketing money local and circulating within our community.  
  • eSS&SC is the only magazine in SE Massachusetts devoted exclusively to the local food scene in our community––and the people who make, cook, or grow it. 
  • Tidings sign upReaders LOVE us! (click the link to hear for yourself.) They trust us and all the information within our pages – editorial, recipes, AND advertisements.
  • Your ad will stand out in a beautiful publication that our readers love, save, and reference over-and-over.
  • NEW! Your own custom-design page on our website included for print ad/partners. (Regular charge is $75 a quarter. See details here.)
  • You will help support our local food community and educate our readers on the importance of the buy-local movement.
  • You’ll support editorial integrity––our ads and editorial are two separate and distinct departments––one does not influence the other.
  • You’ll be part of the most cost-effective, laser targeted advertising opportunity in the region:
    • Limited number of ads
    • We cover all of Plymouth and Bristol counties
    • Controlled distribution–only people that want eSS&SC get eSS&SC, we don’t leave piles on business doorsteps.
    • 15-20,000 copies each season go to your neighbors and nearby communities and they get snapped up fast (that’s up to 80,000 readers per issue, based on the Edible Communities survey pass-on rate of 3.5 readers per copy).
  • All advertisements include free listings here. And, upon request, a free ad in our e-news, TIDINGS, every quarter.
  • Last but not least, of priceless value is that we talk about and promote our enthusiastic advertisers ALL THE TIME!
