ABSTRACT
In the paper findings from an analysis of the direct transactions associated with a sample of farm households drawn from two European case study areas - Podlaskie, Poland and North East Scotland, UK were presented. The results indicated that the concept of "local" in relation to farm household transactions depends on the economic background of the area under analysis. While farms in the Polish CSA region carried out almost all of their farm-related transactions very close to the location of the farm, farms in the North East Scotland had more complex and generally less local transactions reflecting spatial concentration in the upstream and downstream businesses in the respective areas.
