about us


Our mission at Area Woman magazine is to inspire, empower and educate women. Our pages are filled with enlightening stories of local women as they celebrate their connection with family, friends, and community. We embrace our reader's core values and interests with stories of fashion, home, garden, entertainment, food, health, relationships, business and events.

We strive to maintain a high level of integrity as an inspiring local media presence, and to provide our advertisers with a high-quality, effective advertising medium.

Celebrate with us as we enter 37 years of distribution in the FM area! We are proud of our history as the first known, local, free-released women's interest magazine in the country, distributing throughout the Fargo-Moorhead area. You'll find us all around town from doctors' offices to advertisers counters to local grocery stores.

We sincerely thank all who make it possible for us to continue serving our local community. We look forward to many more years of delivering fresh, timely content engaging women in living a vibrant, healthy, and satisfying life.
