Understanding & Enhancing the Community Value of Traditional Retail Markets
Traditional markets have played a significant role in the UK’s towns and cities for centuries but their central community role is threatened by radical changes in retail trends and public sector cuts. Our study aims to provide a new way to understand the community value which traditional markets offer.
Understanding Community Value
We are listening to market traders, operators, campaign groups and other experts from the traditional markets sector to gain insights into how community value is currently understood.
Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, our study runs from February 2018 to August 2020. Our findings will be published on this website as the project progresses and details of our latest activities will be posted on the blog. You can also follow the project on Twitter @markets4people.
