6 April 2014 – traditional food markets in England

You may be interested in a new journal article just published in Area, ‘ The traditional food market and place: new insights into fresh food provisioning in England’, written by myself (Julie Smith), Damian Maye and Brian Ilbery. This is the link: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/area.12083/abstract

The article is based on research, conducted with support from NABMA, that looks at how rapid retail restructuring in city centres, including the growth of supermarkets and farmers’ markets, has affected traditional food markets in Newcastle and Cambridge, England. The findings provide new insights into how traditional food markets are intimately linked with the regions and cities where they are located. Different geographies, histories, approaches to food and farming, and changing socio-demographics have resulted in different outcomes as each market adapts to change.
