The paper explores how the transformative capacity of the urban food movement can be judged. To this end, it firstly presents what the founders of German initiatives and their members and customers tell about their motives and strategies. Subsequently, the various projects are discussed as part of a broader transformative social movement whose transformative capacity is considered from a non-economic perspective along the lines of transformative social innovation. A discussion of the urban food movement as a place of sustainability innovations compared to sustainability innovations within the established system follows before the findings on the transformative capacity are summarized.
