Campaigning to Defend Traditional Markets

This campaigning guide to defending traditional markets was produced by Dr Sara Gonzalez and Gloria Dawson at the University of Leeds as part of an action research project funded by the Antipode Foundation.

The guide is primarily aimed at people who are interested in taking an active role in defending their local market. It provides some signs to look out for in order to notice if your market is under threat, examples of campaigns, strategies and tactics. It draws on ten existing or past campaign groups, a full list of which can be found at the end of this section. This guide is part of a larger piece of scholar- activist research around traditional markets in the UK.
