This paper outlines a research agenda for advancing research in the local food consumption literature. The local foods literature reveals that place attachment for local foods has been mostly studied from the tourist experience context. Whilst this has advanced research in tourism marketing, there is a lack of research that applies place attachment to local food consumption in a non-tourism/tourist context. A preliminary bibliometric review using the VOSviewer application proves this gap and shows three factor-based research themes that informs the Place Attachment and Local Food Consumption Research Agenda. This includes (1) Construct development for Place Attachment for local foods in the non-tourism context and
(2) Psychological Ownership as a proxy for place attachment in local food research.
