Foodscape and Food Urbanism in Europe: The Urban-Rural Interface

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Agrourbanism

Part of the book series: GeoJournal Library ((GEJL,volume 124))

Abstract

In this chapter aspects of food related urbanism in Europe are the focus in the context of the design and planning of urban-rural spaces, interfaces and linkages. It is argued that some of the most complicated urbanism in relation to food happens on the edge of cities, as they are themselves transformed by both growth and shrinkage. The chapter explores how new policies and urban design and planning practices are shaping and being shaped by these transformations primarily on the edge of cities but also in wider rural regions. Using both review of existing place-making literature and case studies of applied primary source research the chapter delves into how food-related urbanism is in turn being represented in a series of foodscapes from peri-urban markets, to new forms of farm tourism, artisan and other distribution landscapes, gastronomic land uses like restaurants and tasting rooms, and terroir and appellation based places of production. It is argued that the gastronomic landscapes of the urban edge and the wider rural region in a European context offer both critical sites, and design and planning issues and possibilities, for sustainable urbanism in future.
