Distant But Local: Border-Based Perceptions of Localness and Effects on Food Preference

We first introduce and validate the Locavore scale. We then show experimentally that consumers exhibit a “border bias” in which distant (vs. proximal) food is perceived as more local when it is sourced from within their political borders, and how localness perceptions interact with Locavorism to influence food choices.
