This thesis explores the relationship of the local food system and socio-ecological resiliency in a city called Jeonju, South Korea. In this paper, I analyze the existence of a local food system that co-produces a city which increases a city’s socio-ecological resilience. The study was conducted through methods of participant interviews, observation, and archival research based on qualitative analysis. This paper contributes to the debates of the micro scale food system in average sized city in Korea and its linkage to the resiliency in local food system.
