During the last few years, the agro-food sector has undergone a phase of great transformation deriving on arising territorial emphasis on the topic and a greater sensitivity regarding the issues of sustainability on supply chains. In this contribution, we focus on how these transformations increasingly boost new communitybased territorial functions in food distribution and consumption. In answering this question, we attempt to delineate a reflection on tools and conditions for sustainable food place-making through the analysis of two examples: the e-commerce platform ‘L’Alveare che dice sì’ and the covered market of ‘Mercato di Lorenteggio’, recognized as good practices in a perspective of convergence between community entrepreneurship and sustainable food place making.
