Despite evolving local food research, there is no consistent definition of “local food.” Various understandings are utilized, which have resulted in a diverse landscape of meaning. The main purpose of this paper is to examine how researchers within the local food systems literature define local food, and how these definitions can be used as a starting point to identify a new taxonomy of local food based on three domains of proximity.
