Heavy Table, a website dedicated to foodie news in Minnesota, is back after a two-year hiatus. 

After launching in 2009, the website went on "hiatus" in 2018 after co-founder James Norton got a job as the food editor of The Growler magazine (the magazine announced in July that the August 2020 print issue would be its last). 

On Monday, Norton and Heavy Table announced their return to writing about the local food scene, with a new business model focused on reader-supported journalism.

Heavy Table will feature two biweekly newsletters "with an eye toward capturing the diversity and complexity of food and drink in Minnesota, with all the deliciousness, beauty, conflict, exploration, innovation, and joy that entails," the website says.

Membership levels start at $5 a month, with the publication noting its previous financial model that relied on advertising "was in steep decline." 

Heavy Table calls this re-launch its second chance to build a financial model that relies on subscribers to support their work.
