Food markets are market places or stores where food products are sold. Some food markets operate periodically in selected days of the week. In food markets, different types of foods are sold. While some vendors sell processed food, others sell fresh food produce.
The major line of business in these stores/markets is the sales of food products, most especially fresh food products; hence, the name, greengrocers.
Grocery stores and greengrocers are unique food markets that are they only sell food produce. Food markets can be subsidiary markets. They can be a part of a bigger store just like we can have grocery stores and food departments in supermarkets and hypermarkets.
However, food markets are becoming more shunned every day because a large percentage of the country’s population lives in Metropolis.
The ever increasing spike in urban population has led to an increase in demand for resources, economic activities, land use for housing, and employment creation. This leads to less land use for farming activities. Year in year out, urban center population increases, people keep moving in. Thus, there’s the need to cater for the ever-increasing population.
Greengrocers, convenience stores, supermarkets, hypermarkets, and grocery stores are the main suppliers of foodstuffs and supplies to urban populations. The demand for land use for economic activities has reduced the portion for farming activities.
Therefore, a decrease in farming activities would lead to a decrease in natural farm markets. Farming activities in recent times have been relegated to rural centers. Farm markets are more common in rural areas or places with lesser populations
