This guide is designed to assist community planners, rural engineers and agricultural extension units to formulate and implement relevant market-development plans. Upgrading rural markets is one way to improve access to marketing opportunities. The issues covered in this Guide include: designing markets that meet a community's social and economic needs; working with communities to identify the marketing problems and to choose a site for a new market; using appropriate and simple methods to survey and plan the site layout and to design market buildings; preparing a market development proposal and making budget estimates; undertaking simple social and economic feasibility studies; looking for financing and constructing the market; managing, operating and maintaining the market.
