Market Operators and Managers

Evidence generated from customer surveys in our three case studies markets, and disseminated via reports and presentations, has provided market operators and managers with increased knowledge of their customer base. At national level, our research supports market operators’ and managers’ activities by evidencing the added value of this sector vis-a-vis corporate supermarkets, at a time of increased competition and shrinking public budgets, thus providing a more grounded basis for government decisions.

Supported by our Co-Investigators NMTF and NEF, and also by NABMA, we invited market managers and operators to take part in interviews and workshops to explore major issues affecting and influencing traditional markets in the UK, and to share understandings of how their community value can be identified and enhanced. Our co-produced research, including examples of best practice and replicable policy tools can be found on the Our Findings page.
