Edible Queens Magazine Will Shutter at End of the Month

A magazine celebrating the diverse culinary offerings of the World’s Borough will shutter at the end of the month after struggling to stay afloat as the coronavirus pandemic has devastated the restaurant industry.

Edible Queens will close at the end of the month after a three year run, publisher Claudia Sánchez announced today. The magazine is part of a network of 80 “Edible” publications across North America, with each independently owned.

“These are troubling times for small businesses and Edible Queens,” Sánchez wrote. “I have decided to close Edible Queens.”

The magazine has struggled to find content to cover as the pandemic has mostly shutdown the food and drink industry. Additionally, the magazine was largely distributed at restaurants– which are now mostly closed.

“Writers, illustrators, designers, photographers, the backbone of Edible Queens magazine—they now struggle to find their next assignment,” the publisher wrote. “Shops where readers excitedly picked up their next issue—while some may remain open, they are filled with leery customers, understandably afraid of collecting non-essential products.”

The magazine will continue to post content on its website and social media accounts through May 29, including its latest women’s issue and COVID-19 resources.

“While we will go silent on May 29th, I wanted to share what would have been our third annual Women’s Issue,” Sánchez wrote. “Beginning Monday, May 11th, we will post a new story each day on social media with a link to our website.”
