Abstract: Purpose: Food markets represent a pathway to explore the authenticity and identity of a territory. Markets are a crucial example among food tourism practices in urban contexts. This paper aims to analyze the products that build the particular food landscape of Costa Daurada, Catalonia, Spain. Design/methodology/approach: To achieve it, the research was based on the study of foods offered in three regional markets. Findings: Results show how Costa Daurada is gastronomically characterized and what products convey the diversity and singularity of the region. Originality/value: The originality of this paper lies on the building of a regional gastronomy landscape on the basis of the iconic products delivered at local food markets, regarded as shared spaces between locals and tourists.
