Consumption has often been used as analytical lens for the interpretation of spatial, economic and social processes related to gentrification. Indeed, within the post-Fordist society, changes in consumption patterns find a specific relationship with the class dimension of urban change, showing a connection with the transformation of the commercial landscape and its effects on the mechanisms of social distinction, the dynamics of socialization and the emergence of potential inequalities between social groups. Food consumption, in particular, has acquired growing importance in defining social identities and tends to be recognised as a means of social positioning characterized by belongings and barriers. This work is based on a qualitative research which investigates the gentrification process of the "cultural" neighbourhood of Stokes Croft in Bristol (UK). Focusing on food consumption, the paper aims to shed light on the interactions between commercial change, social identity and social class within the gentrification process of the place, paying particular attention in reporting consumption and social inequalities may arise among different population groups. Keywords: gentrification, consumptions, identity, social class, food, Bristol.
