This study examines the contribution that street markets and farmers’ markets in London make to their local economies, their local communities and to London as a whole. The focus is on markets’ role in providing access to nutritious food and the wider impacts of London’s markets in terms of the jobs they create, their impact on the business community and the wealth they generate. There is little published literature on the impacts of street markets or farmers’markets. Most of the studies to date on farmers’ markets have been performed in the United States or Canada where farmers’ markets have a longer history than in the UK.
