If an item suggests that food should be both produced and consumed in the same place, its employs the value of “local food". Alternatively, items that call into question the conceptual limitations of “place” may fit into this category.
- Food produced within X miles of its purchase and/or consumption (e.g. 100-mile diet)
- Food purchased and/or consumed within the county, state, or region of its production
- Food produced under the control of the area community, does not simply take place there
- See the Real Food Challenge
- Used as shorthand for other qualities (e.g. grown without chemicals, grown on a small family farm, taste, freshness, supporting the 'local' economy)
- In "Use of Local Markets by Organic Producers," C. Dimitri treats the sometimes synonymous use of local and organic: "The organic label addresses how food is produced, processed and distributed while the local label provides information about the distance between production and point of sale. An active discussion about the differences between 'local' and 'organic' has emerged in the media and popular literature, with some suggesting that locally grown food trumps organically produced food, and others debating the converse. Despite this popular line of discussion, many long-time participants in the organic market perceive organic and local agriculture as 'two sides of the same coin' (Lipson 2008)."
