Dialogues about the Market

Recording of the last session of "Space and Food: Table, Home, Market" debates

[Catalan | 02:02:26]

Markets are part of the complex world of agricultural production. But where do these foods come from and what territories have been altered so that cities can be fed in the way that they are today? In the past, they were connected with neighbouring territories in close formal and physical relationships. Present-day conditions have greatly transformed these relationships. The logistics and digitisation of commerce have made possible the coexistence, in the same stall, of products from nearby gardens and others from faraway parts of the world. Precisely because of this, the food choices we make in the market can transform distant territories with quite evident ecological consequences.
