Studies the food shopping practices and priorities among residents (in their mid-40s and mid-60s) of four socially contrasting neighbourhoods in Glasgow, Scotland. Poorer people were more likely to give priority to price. Although overall, most grocery shopping is done in supermarkets, poorer people and those living in more disadvantaged areas were more likely than higher income groups to shop for basic foodstuffs such as bread, milk, fruit and vegetables in local shops. Public health and social policies may need to focus on local neighbourhoods in order to reach those groups whose health is poorer and who are most at risk from diet related diseases.
