Abstract

This study examines the systems which govern the marketing opportunities for informal urban and peri-urban cultivators, and for rural producers, in our two study countries, Nigeria and Zambia and it explores the mechanisms of marketing food in urban areas. Our literature review illustrates how little is known about how these formal and informal regulatory systems currently operate. For example, the positive contribution of both urban-based and rural-based traders in providing an essential service to urban consumers has not been adequately analysed.
