Gift ideas for the local food lover in your life.

December 19, 2016


  1. A subscription to Edible Baja Arizona: Help the local food lover in your life stay informed about Southern Arizona food, farms, and culture. Each subscription comes with a VIP discount card that can be used to save at over sixty local businesses! $36 for one year; $58 for two years.
  2. Whiskey Del Bac Dorado Mesquite Smoked Whiskey: The perfect gift for the whiskey drinker in your life. Made with malt smoked over a mesquite fire, this single malt whiskey will remind drinkers of the Sonoran Desert with every sip. Whiskey Del Bac can be found at Plaza Liquors and various other liquor stores around town. $49.99
  3. Ownership in the Food Conspiracy Co-op: This is truly the gift that keeps on giving! Owners of the Food Conspiracy Co-op participate in decision-making, get access to special owner-only deals, receive a yearly rebate (in profitable years), get free ad space in the Co-op’s quarterly newsletter, and have the opportunity to run for the Board of Directors. $180 one-time fee.
  4. Dinnerware from HF Coors: What better way is there to eat your locally-grown food than on locally-made dinnerware? HF Coors was recently voted the “best locally made gifts in the state of Arizona” by Travel and Leisure Magazine, and with their wide array of colorful patterns we’re not surprised! Prices vary.
  5. City of gastronomy gift offerings from Native Seeds/SEARCH: Indulge in the native foods (such as white Sonoran wheat, tepary beans, and chiltepins) that helped earn Tucson its designation as a UNESCO World City of Gastronomy. The Native Seeds/SEARCH store on Campbell Avenue has a variety of local food offerings, native seeds, and locally-made kitchen supplies. Prices from $6.
  6. Edible Trees for Tucson Poster: Edible Baja Arizona teamed up with local artist Adela Antoinette and Trees for Tucson to create this wall-worthy poster that features illustrations of edible plants suitable for Baja Arizona. $25
  7. CSA+C Subscription: Any local food lover would be thrilled to get a six week subscription to CSA+C. Why? Each week, members receive three 750ml growlers of Pueblo Vida beer, five to six local vegetables and one dozen eggs sourced by Pivot Produce, one loaf of bread from Small Batch Bakery, 6oz goat cheese from Fiore di Capra, a 6oz bag of coffee from Presta Coffee Roasters, and a different specialty item each week. Sign us up! $360 for six weeks.
  8. Unprocessed by Megan Kimble: From the managing editor of Edible Baja Arizona comes Unprocessed, a “narrative of Megan’s extraordinary year, in which she milled wheat, extracted salt from the sea, milked a goat, slaughtered a sheep, and more—all while she was a busy, broke city-dweller.” This is a must-read for anybody interested in local food and the impact it has on our lives and our community. Find Unprocessed at Antigone Books or online. $15.99
  9. Tap and Bottle Beer Club: Way more fun than any club you joined as a kid, Tap and Bottle’s Beer Club includes a 6-pack curated by Tap and Bottle staff that often features new and seasonal beers. And, because beer and food go so well together, each 6-pack comes with tasting notes and food pairings so that members get the most of their monthly beer. $35-$400
