  1. Characterizing Alternative Food Networks in China.Zhenzhong Si, Theresa Schumilas & Steffanie Scott - 2015 - Agriculture and Human Values 32 (2):299-313.
    Amid the many food safety scandals that have erupted in recent years, Chinese food activists and consumers are turning to the creation of alternative food networks to ensure better control over their food. These Chinese AFNs have not been documented in the growing literature on food studies. Based on in-depth interviews and case studies, this paper documents and develops a typology of AFNs in China, including community supported agriculture, farmers’ markets, buying clubs, and recreational garden plot rentals. We unpacked the (...)

  • Sustainability Transitions in the Context of Pandemic: An Introduction to the Focused Issue on Social Innovation and Systemic Impact.Geoffrey Desa & Xiangping Jia - forthcoming - Agriculture and Human Values:1-9.
    For society to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, the agri-food industry needs a substantial sustainability transition toward food systems capable of delivering greater volumes of nutritious food, while simultaneously lowering the environmental footprint. This issue of AHV focuses on the big picture—on mechanisms of sustainability transition, from social innovation, to models of finance and institutional systems, and calls for business and agricultural researchers to transform the sector together. Contributors to this issue embrace a transdisciplinary outlook, including scientific, technical, social and (...)

  • Just Where Does Local Food Live? Assessing Farmers’ Markets in the United States.Justin Schupp - 2016 - Agriculture and Human Values 33 (4):827-841.
    Participation in the local food movement has grown dramatically in the United States, with the farmers’ market being one of its most widespread and heavily promoted forums. Proponents argue that the interactions and transactions that occur at farmers’ markets benefit market participants, but, more importantly, have broader benefits for the neighborhoods they are located in and for society itself. The promise of these benefits raises several important questions, notably: where are farmers’ markets located and who has access to them? While (...)

  • Relationship Patterns in Food Purchase: Observing Social Interactions in Different Shopping Environments.Clara Cicatiello, Barbara Pancino, Stefano Pascucci & Silvio Franco - 2015 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 28 (1):21-42.
    The social dimension of purchase seems particularly important when it comes to food, since it can contribute to foster “consumers’ embeddedness” in the local food system. The discussion on this topic is growing after the emergence of alternative food networks , which are thought to have potentials to re-connect the different actors of local food systems, and/or to strengthen the existing social ties among them. This study focuses on the evaluation of the degree of sociality in different food shopping environments. (...)

  • A Quantitative Analysis of Food Movement Convergence in Four Canadian Provinces.Jennifer Silver, Ze’ev Gedalof, Evan Fraser & Ashley McInnes - 2017 - Agriculture and Human Values 34 (4):787-804.
    Whether the food movement is most likely to transform the food system through ‘alternative’ or ‘oppositional’ initiatives has been the focus of considerable scholarly debate. Alternative initiatives are widespread but risk reinforcing the conventional food system by supporting neoliberal discourse and governance mechanisms, including localism, consumer choice, entrepreneurialism and self-help. While oppositional initiatives such as political advocacy have the potential for system-wide change, the current neoliberal political and ideological context dominant in Canada poses difficulties for initiatives that explicitly oppose the (...)

  • Metropolitan Farmers Markets in Minneapolis and Vienna: A Values-Based Comparison.Milena Klimek, Jim Bingen & Bernhard Freyer - 2018 - Agriculture and Human Values 35 (1):83-97.
    Farmers markets have traditionally served as a space for farmers to sell directly to consumers. Recently, many FMs in the US and other regions have experienced a renaissance. This article compares the different value sets embedded in the rules and norms of two metropolitan FM regions—Minneapolis, Minnesota and in Vienna, Austria. It uses a values-based framework that reflects the relationships among FM operating structures and their values reflected by the key FM participants—i.e., farmer/vendors, consumers and market managers. The framework allows (...)

  • Understanding the Organization of Sharing Economy in Agri-Food Systems: Evidence From Alternative Food Networks in Valencia.Stefano Pascucci, Domenico Dentoni & Isabel Miralles - 2017 - Agriculture and Human Values 34 (4):833-854.
    Despite the proliferation of sharing economy initiatives in agri-food systems, the recent literature has still not unravelled what sharing exactly entails from an organizational standpoint. In light of this knowledge gap, this study aims to understand which resources are shared, and how, in a heterogeneous set of sharing economy initiatives in the context of food and agriculture. Specifically, this study compares the organization of various forms of alternative food networks, which are recognized to be frugal forms of sharing economy initiatives, (...)

  • Shifting Configurations of Shopping Practices and Food Safety Dynamics in Hanoi, Vietnam: A Historical Analysis.Sigrid C. O. Wertheim-Heck & Gert Spaargaren - 2016 - Agriculture and Human Values 33 (3):655-671.
    This paper offers a historical analysis of contemporary practices of shopping for vegetables in the highly dynamic context of urban Hanoi during the period from 1975 to 2014. Focusing on everyday shopping practices from a food safety perspective, we assess the extent to which the policy-enforced process of supermarketization has proven to be an engine of change in daily vegetable purchasing while improving food safety. In depicting transitions in shopping practices, we combine a social practices approach with historical analysis. Providing (...)
