    Place and Civic Culture: Re-Thinking the Context for Local Agriculture. [REVIEW]Laura Delind & Jim Bingen - 2008 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 21 (2):127-151.
    This article considers the qualitative concept of place – what it means, how it feels, how it is expressed, and how it is managed across time and space as the appropriate context within which to study and promote local agriculture and the locus of relationships, both cultural and political, that prefigure a local civic culture.

    Metropolitan Farmers Markets in Minneapolis and Vienna: A Values-Based Comparison.Milena Klimek, Jim Bingen & Bernhard Freyer - 2018 - Agriculture and Human Values 35 (1):83-97.
    Farmers markets have traditionally served as a space for farmers to sell directly to consumers. Recently, many FMs in the US and other regions have experienced a renaissance. This article compares the different value sets embedded in the rules and norms of two metropolitan FM regions—Minneapolis, Minnesota and in Vienna, Austria. It uses a values-based framework that reflects the relationships among FM operating structures and their values reflected by the key FM participants—i.e., farmer/vendors, consumers and market managers.

    Labels of Origin for Food, the New Economy and Opportunities for Rural Development in the US.Jim Bingen - 2012 - Agriculture and Human Values 29 (4):543-552.
    This paper draws upon the events surrounding two small United States Department of Agriculture-funded projects in order to explore some preliminary ideas about the influence of corporations in US policy-making through federal advisory committees created by the 1972 Federal Advisory Committee Act. Following a synopsis of the political controversy created by the efforts of these projects to generate more discussion of geographical indications in the US, this paper outlines a path for further analysis of the relationships between members of advisory (...)
