If you live in Ontario, you can pick up a copy of Food & Drink for free at any LCBO. I think it's a fantastic publication, and not just for a free magazine. The photography is beautiful, and there's always something good among the recipes.
Food & Wine is another gorgeous publication. I especially like their Best New Chefs issue.
Another great free publication for Ontario, specifically focused on the Golden Horseshoe. Edible Toronto highlights small scale farmers and food producers in the region surrounding Toronto. There are always some really informative articles.
If you're not in the Toronto area, you can also check out their issue archives online.
