The market and the way it looks now, is built on two pillars, consumers and economic agents, to which a third is joining: the public authorities. In the present study we have dealt with urban markets, regarded as trading places for a variety of products, but, at the same time, as social spaces for the community and business support-spaces for small manufacturers. The transition from agro-food markets to urban markets is a dynamic and on-going process, requiring a thorough study that would allow for responsible management, in terms of consumers and retailers as well. Current customers have changed their purchasing behaviour, the assessment criteria for products and for the conditions offered in consumer outlets. It is therefore necessary for management to adapt to the dynamic changes that characterize markets, to meet customer requirements, to ensure their safety and protection in the purchasing process and increase their satisfaction. We have tried to offer an accurate and updated image on the local agri-food markets in Romania, identifying at the same time ways to optimize the existing conditions in the context of promoting sustainable development of urban markets and with the final goal of enhancing consumer protection.

The urban markets are some of the few urban areas that have preserved their functionality over the
decades, and have developed their facilities and range of products. However, many of those still have a
long way to go, as compared to similar markets in other European countries.
The concept of "agri-food" can be interpreted as being inconsistent with the reality of current
markets: most of the times, the space arranged for selling agri-food products was extended step by step,
in an uncontrolled process, by creating additional spaces for the distribution of non-food products, by
opening small outlets, fast food restaurants and bars. Moreover, since they are mostly located in the
centre or in accessible points, markets have become a socializing space for consumers and the local
Since Romania has been trying to eliminate inconsistencies in terms of development in all areas, the
administration of urban markets and the local authorities are also starting to pay more attention to the
optimization of the services provided. In order to catch up, one has to start with the apprehension of
how urban markets currently function in the EU and, additionally, with what the urban markets in EU
countries want to become in 20 years’ time. The vision of market development in Romania must be
ambitious enough so that it would not be in the position of permanently recovering from a late start. In
the European countries, there are on-going debates about “green buildings”, “smart cities”, “smart
buildings”, sustainable solutions and energy optimization (Widman, 2012, p. 31), while in Romania,
the normal operating framework of the markets is still being debated, along with standards of hygiene,
proper access for retailers and consumers and improved infrastructure.
The research presented in this article was conducted by the authors in cooperation with a team of
experts from the Suceava Municipality as part of the project “Sustainable urban markets”, co-financed
by the European Union through the European Regional Development Program from the Inter-regional
Cooperation Program URBACT II 2007-2013, implemented by the municipality of Suceava. The
research was planned and implemented with the support and cooperation of the municipal
representatives as well as representatives of the market administration, while the authors ensured the
coordination of the conducted research and of the participatory workshops. The methodology used in
the strategic analysis was the PESTLE technique for the focus groups, moderated workshops with the
support of the PCM (Project Cycle Management) technique and the research based on the investigation
of the direct beneficiaries of the market.
The paper will present the research findings on the services delivered by the urban markets from
Suceava, focusing on the link between the current state of the markets and the safety, satisfaction and
protection of the consumers.
Although the research has focused primarily on three permanent urban markets of Suceava City (the
county of Suceava, located in the North-East of Romania), the research findings can be extrapolated for
the majority of the existing city markets of Romania, and we may consider the study as being relevant.
Sustainable urban markets in the European context. From agri-food markets to integrated markets
Agri-food markets have always been not only a place for exchange, but also a place for socializing,
a central point of the city and a vivid place of the community. Nowadays, when retail outlets
(hypermarkets, supermarkets, discount stores) have reached the top positions with revenue increases
estimated between 2% -4% for 2014 (Primăria Suceava, 2013) in the sale of mass consumption food
and goods, agri-food markets are trying to reinvent themselves and to reaffirm their place in the
community, in the history and social environment of the city where they are located.
A European program that encourages this "re-shaping" of the city markets and their roles is the
URBACT (http://urbact.eu/en/about-urbact/urbact-at-a-glance/urbact-in-words/) program of learning
and European networking, promoting sustainable urban development. Extended to 500 cities, 29
countries and 7000 active participants, this program ensures the optimal cooperation of urban centres in
identifying solutions to the current urban challenges, and in finding new, sustainable and sensible
solutions. One of the advantages bestowed by this program is that it provides a uniform level of
knowledge in terms of urban development issues and the free circulation of know-how in the partner
A clear picture of what markets should be about is described by Partrige (2013, p.1), who states that
“the urban markets could become centres of social, environmental and economic change. The markets
generate flows of people, traffic, economic activity, contribute to the development of trade in the
surrounding areas, stimulate tourism and strengthen local cohesion”.
The "State of art" document mentions that the debate on the urban markets problem is a relatively
recent development, the approach being closely related to other areas, such as agriculture, urban areas,

possible enhancement of the market as a tourist attraction and place of socialization, a social and
community development centre, an urban development pole and a central point that can constitute an
example for the efficient use of resources.
The transition to a complex urban market, with its array of relationships and influences, shown in
figure no. 1, is to be achieved by integrated measures, adapted to the needs of consumers and retailers,
but also in the conditions imposed by the local community and by the physical space where the markets

Urban agri-food markets in Romania
Local markets in Romania are currently perceived as “public domain spaces that are available to
local producers and traders of agri-food products, as outlets situated in well-known locations with good
commercial venue and tradition (according to “Information press conference September 26, 2013.
Sustainable Urban Markets - URBACT II 2007-2013”).
In Romania, the market trade of products and services is governed by Government Decision no. 348 of 18th of March 2004, Government Ordinance no. 99/2000 concerning the commerce with products and services on the local market, Law no. 650/2002, the Law of public administration no. 215/2001, Government Ordinance no. 71/2002 regarding the organization and functioning of public administration of public and private domain of local interest, approved by Law no. 3/2003, and art. 6 of the Government Decision no. 21/1992 on consumer protection, republished, with subsequent amendments.
According to GD no. 348/2004 the types of markets that can be organized in public areas are: agri-food and farmers markets, fairs, rural markets, folk festivals, mixed markets, temporary markets, and flea markets. The regulations only stipulate the general operating framework, facilities and trade organizations. The conditions for consumers and traders, however, depend largely on the funding that public administration have at their disposal and also depend on the city market management. From this point of view, the exchange of experience and best practices at a European level can bring significant advantages.
Currently, the attractiveness of the market is rather low because of the precarious access infrastructure, trade-related infrastructure, the lack of major investments in the rehabilitation and modernization of the markets in providing quality goods and related services, but also because of the variety of products and services offered by supermarkets and shopping malls (Primăria Suceava, 2013).
As we have mentioned, the markets retain features that differentiate them from other types of trade. They preserve elements of local culture, make reference to urban identity, invigorate local production and social life in the area, have an economic and employment impact and can become models of sustainable development (Manole et. al., 2003, p. 97; Martin, 2010, p. 21).
When discussing the relationship between markets and its customers we need to distinguish between two separate categories of beneficiaries, as shown in Figure
Each of the above categories - sellers and buyers - benefit from different services from the markets,
and the facilities also differ, depending on each case. For example, the customers’ access infrastructure
is different as compared to the sellers’ access infrastructure, which shall provide access for freight cars
and for handling of goods. This is just one example of the range of services and facilities which must
be managed separately and adapted to the special needs of the target group.
A modern management of urban markets must be based on a set of principles oriented towards
consumers and towards those who provide products for the agri-food markets, paying additional
attention to both categories of market customers: modernizing the management, upgrading facilities
and endowments, adapting services to consumers’ demand, promoting healthy consumer habits and
practices, promoting fresh products and their nutritious properties, participation in social, cultural and
charitable activities, food hygiene and clear establishment of the products’ origin, sustainable methods
of waste disposal (Martin, 2010). To this, we might add a participatory strategic development and the
strategic communication oriented towards all stakeholders.
Even if the concept of urban market currently includes trade in non-food products and various
services, the main category of goods sold here are foodstuffs, either unprocessed or as processed
products ready for consumption. Despite all the measures taken by the European authorities to ensure
the traceability of food, as well as food safety and security, over the past 10 years, the European market
has faced a number of serious problems – the "mad cow" disease, bird-flu virus and others that have
lowered the consumer’s trust in purchased foodstuff from unsecured sources. The European food
security strategies and consumer protection for the period of 2007 - 2013 (European Communities,
2007) and for the following one, 2014-2020, have the consumers’ needs as central objectives and the
provision of adequate protection under these highly dynamic market conditions (European
Communities, 2012). Regardless of where they do their shopping, either in a convenience store, at the
market or online, the European consumer must be protected as well, but this cannot be achieved
without the responsible behaviour of the stakeholders - retailers, distributors and authorities.
According to authors Pouliot and Summer (2009) the food traceability has a critical role in
maintaining the reputation of the markets where the products are sold, the reputation of producers and
in ensuring consumer protection. In their study, the authors identified a number of risks that arise in the
chain of food selling, risks that can be kept under control and even reduced to insignificant values by
means of an effective and responsible management performed by manufacturers, distributors and
authorities. The urban markets, as modern types of trade, are able to provide the necessary conditions
in order to preserve the nutritional and hygienic properties of food so that their consumption is safe for
Research on the urban market management, services and facilities
Starting from the analysis of the concept of integrated market and from the best practices models of
the urban markets in Barcelona, London, Torino, Pecs, Dublin, Toulouse, Wroclaw and the Attica
region, (Adams & Arnkil, 2013) the research objectives were formulated as follows: (O1) conducting a
review of the current situation concerning the development stage of urban markets in the Suceava city
(specific infrastructure and facilities, categories of offered services) through field survey and
discussions with relevant interest groups that are part of the local group support (GLS), initiated by the
project coordinators; (O2) Investigation of the opinions of the two categories of markets beneficiaries –
retailers or small producers and buyers – regarding the safety and quality of facilities and market
administration; (O3) Analysis of the influences of external factors in the development of sustainable
urban markets (PESTLE), by consulting relevant stakeholders; (O4) Identification, in cooperation with
the municipality and markets administration, of the positive and negative critical points in future
The research was conducted in three stages during the period May to August 2013. The methods
used were direct observation and field study (stage I, May 2013), questionnaire-based surveys (phase
II, May-June and September 2013) and moderated workshops for the PEST and SWOT analysis (stage
III, July-August 2013), together with the final data processing and the final recording of the
observations and additions from GLS representatives.
The first stage of the research has enabled a diagnosis of the current situation regarding the services
and the facilities. The synthetic picture used was based on the features list as shown in the GD
348/2004 and the presence in the territory of the functionality of the points specified in art. 7 of
Chapter 3, "Managing trade in markets and fairs" and art. 8 Chapter IV "Location and operation of
markets" was checked.
During the second stage, an investigation was conducted on the consumers and on the sellers’
perception from the three markets in the study. In order to achieve the research objectives, we have
used qualitative and quantitative techniques, questionnaires comprising both closed questions
(dichotomous and with Likert scale) and open questions. The optimization of the response time was
also considered, by taking into account the traffic and the intense activity of both buyers and sellers on
the market, as well as an easier subsequent centralization of the answers. The questions addressed the
extent to which the administration and the facilities of the market meet the specific needs of the target
groups described. The items included in the questionnaire were based on the results of the first stage of
analysis of the situation in the field and the issues risen by the GLS members or by the people who
have been questioned in the field visits.
The survey was preceded by a pilot study from which five questions were reformulated. The surveys
in the field were conducted in two stages, in June and in early September 2013, with a final result of
243 questionnaires validated for buyers (for all three markets) and a final number of 210 questionnaires
validated for retailers. The sample was chosen randomly, the chances of achieving a representative
sample being reduced because of the lack of statistical data regarding the structure and characteristics
of the customers. The centralization and the processing of the collected data were done separately for
each of the three markets (central, and two located in the neighbourhoods of the city), as the features
and the standards differ in each of them.
The results for the central market will be presented below, as this location has the highest degree of
similarity in terms of positioning, surface and features with other city markets located in other urban
centres in Romania. The questions for traders referred to the arrangement and appearance of the
market, current market infrastructure, display facilities, the possibilities of storing the goods, specific
access and supply infrastructure, lighting, sanitation and drinking water, access among the stalls,
characteristics of construction, optimal use of resources. The sample consisted of 85 respondents, 70%
of which had been working in the market for more than 6 years. We have found a polarization towards
medium-level indexes on the Likert scale. More than 53% of respondents believe that the overall
framework of the activities is disadvantageous and 77% believe that improving the layout and
appearance of the market would encourage an increase in sales. Only half of the surveyed sample was
satisfied with the display infrastructure and with the cargo storage (52%), with the access (53%),
lighting (53%) and the existing equipment in terms of sanitation and running water (63%). The rest said
that the situation is not acceptable, but that they were accustomed to the existing conditions. The main
complaints were related to: the current state of the roof, its extension to the areas currently uncovered,
the need to improve the general appearance, construction of driveways for merchants and buyers,
modern bathroom facilities (with public toilets, sinks, hot water) and cold storage for perishable
products, improving the access in the roundabout area and traffic lights for pedestrian crossings. The
local producers’ ability to display their goods was assessed as high and very high, probably due to the
location and diversity of the supply of goods in the same location. Other responses related to the poor
quality of services focused on the access of buyers with special needs (disabled, elderly, and mothers
with children) as well as the access for the freight cars that supply the stalls, the appearance of the
commercial space around the market and the insufficient number of recycling bins.
In terms of buyers, the sample was of about 243 people, 124 men and 119 women, of which 37%
aged between 56-75 years, about 27% between 36-45 years and 46-55 years and about 10% aged
between 20-35 years; 60% had graduated from high school and from university, while the rest had
graduated from secondary or primary education, 33% were retired, 30% were employed in the private
sector, 23% in the public sector, while 13% were unemployed and/or students. Of all the interviewed
persons, 33% were interested in the bakery sector, 23% in vegetables and fruit, 30% in meat and meat
products, and only 7% were interested in dairy products and derivatives and 7% in flowers and
For the central market, a number of 92 questionnaires have been centralized. From this, it appears
that for 27% of the people, the buying decision depends on the option to support local producers and
traders that have fresher merchandise, for 23% on the quality guarantee, for 10% on the variety of
goods, and for 10% on the negotiated price. As for the general framework in which trade takes place in
the market, the following discouraging factors have been noted, in descending order: poor quality of
the merchandise, improper display space, low diversity, traders’ attitude, lack of parking facilities,
location of available parking space, cleanliness and poor hygiene of displayed merchandise. The
overall quality of the market on the components described by the Likert scale was appreciated mostly
as low and average, lower indices being given for : market access infrastructure, access among the
stalls, temporary waste storage and disposal, access for people with special needs, access to sanitation
facilities, traffic on nearby streets and access roads, appearance of the commercial area around the
market, display of promotional billboards, cleanliness of alleys and market space and optimal use of
As concerns the market as a place for socializing, 33% of the respondents answered that, if
upgraded, the market may become a place to socialize, with parks, rest and recreation areas, pedestrian
areas and sites for gastronomic experience. Suggested improvements for markets consisted in: constant
visits by city council officials, local promotion, the organization of an annual market festival, the
encouragement of domestic producers by the authorities.
The results clearly indicate the actions to be targeted in the future, within the approach established
according to European standards for consumer services. The intervention methods are different and, for
a better consumer protection and safety, consumer protection factors must be taken into account (Dinu,
1999): the government (through legislative and institutional framework, rules and regulations, control
and inspection, sanctions) producers (involved in quality, reliability, maintainability, cost, guarantees),
consumers (protection of health, safety, security, affordable price, environment protection, quality of
life), trade unions (social supervision, support actions, promotion, related NGO’s (associations,
federations) as well as information, education, training and representation.
In order to develop a participatory action plan, three focus groups that included GLS representatives
in discussion groups were held. The structure of this local support group is diverse, with both public
institutions and NGO representatives from the business environment, consumers and traders being
represented. Their structure is shown in Table no.1. Focus groups were organized at the initiative and
with the support of the municipality, in order to create the premises for developing a local action plan
for the development and modernization of the markets.
The methodology used was the one recommended by Urbact (Campbell, Partridge, Soto, 2013),
PESTLE analysis, SWOT analysis and PCM (Project Cycle Management). The mode of action has
pursued five progressive stages: listing of relevant PESTLE analysis factors (political, economic,
social, technical, legal, environmental), identification of relevant sub-factors, identification of the
impact on a scale of 1-10, formulating actions that may offset or optimize the estimated impact, as
Following the centralization of the PESTLE analysis, the following conclusions were drawn, based
on the working group interventions:
rigorous compliance with the legislation, thus achieving a stable market, with a fair competition and
with secured quality of products. Trade policies regulating the market and environmental policies
improving the quality of life and better use of resources also have a very important impact. Another
large impact on urban markets is represented by regional policies, promoting and developing specific
economic activities and political stability and neutrality, creating a favourable framework for the
development of sustainable projects, especially ensuring continuity in economic development. Team
members stated that fiscal policies have a great impact on encouraging economic growth or
employment or, on the contrary, discouraging economic activities. Social inclusion policies are also
important and could increase cultural refinement and the inclusion of disadvantaged groups.
2. The analysis of the
represented by internal and external funding mechanisms, and the creation of new jobs. Budgetary
restrictions, through budgetary fluctuations, affect the continuity and sustainability of urban markets,
an integrated flywheel markets system through a consistent presentation of the market concept is
needed, and the increased collaboration and partnerships lead to the development of the flow of goods.
The supply chain development, a better stimulation of production and related services, the existence of
specialized stores that address target groups also have a considerable impact, and, likewise, the
encouragement of the competition for the development of high quality products leads to a more
diversified supply and offers a wider range of choice. Other factors that have an impact on the
development of sustainable urban markets are the setting of new national and international themed
markets that enable the development of new temporary or permanent themed markets and the creation
of new local brands that enhance the local image.
preference for certain brands, consumer behaviour, and the orientation of traders towards trading and
promotion training courses that are very important in urban market activity. Consumer opinions, their
lifestyle, socialization and leisure and campaigns to educate and inform the public on the consumption
of local products have been identified to have a rather considerable impact. Religious factors (fasting,
ceremonies) have an impact on market supply and demand because adaptation is based on religious
events and periods. And factors such as: the attitude towards food market, the personal values of
buyers, demographic changes and the impact of the market on the surrounding area have been
identified as having a moderate impact. The cultural role of the markets was identified as having a low
impact on the development of sustainable urban markets.
4. The study of the impact of
urban markets has revealed that a major factor is the introduction of trading technologies and
equipment on the market, as product and producer identification represent food safety. Other identified
factors with a strong impact are: rapidly changing technologies and equipment that lead to cost
efficiency and reduced environmental impact, promoting markets through new technologies,
computerization and digital communication means better and faster public information and promotion
of websites by connecting with new media technologies (electronic billboards - minimum / maximum
price, exchange rates) and energy efficient technologies reduce the harmful impact on the environment
and better use of water and resources.
5. The team responsible with the
markets, namely the existence of legislation on small producers provides better sustainability of small
and medium-sized businesses; the existence of specific market legislation gives priority to local
producers; traditional and environmental products legislation leads to the increased quality of the
supply and enhances the image of local products. Equally important is the product quality control
legislation, as it improves the medium and long term health of the population.
6. The last factors of the PEST analysis are the
the markets. Thus, a major impact on the development of urban markets is induced by the inappropriate
appearance of public areas, partly due to poor education of the population, lack of waste recycling and
conservative mentality of the consumers and producers in terms of the environment. The existence of a
waste management system has a significant impact on the environment and on the consumer as well.
The use of organic products reduces costs, increases comfort and the quality of life and reduces
pollution. The competition between manufacturers will change over time as 'organic' products are
becoming increasingly popular on the market.
The internal analysis for permanent and temporary markets took into consideration the strengths and
the weaknesses, and focussed on the following elements: the infrastructure for clients, the infrastructure
for commercial activities, the connection with the local economy, the market as a place for
socialization of the local community, attractiveness and promotion, and tourist attractiveness. For three
permanent markets (Central market, Burdujeni market, George Enescu market) we developed an
internal factor analysis - strengths and weaknesses (Table 3.)
The analysis identified a number of common features with those derived from the questionnaire
applied in the 3 markets to buyers and sellers. All three phases have highlighted important points for
future market development that would ensure security and improved consumer satisfaction. The
centralized information could be used in making a local action plan which will be implemented in the
future. The diverse sample structure enabled the coverage of a complex range of problems and results
that have addressed a wide range of causes and factors which influence the development of urban
By summarizing the above information, we can state that the research findings have provided a
complex set of data that will be the basis of future market development, with focus on the real needs of
the stakeholders, retailers and consumers alike. At present, the trends are favouring the sales of food
products in the markets by the local producers. Procopie and Bobe mentioned an enhancement of direct
trade from producers to consumers in the European developed countries after the 80s, because more
and more clients preferred food and agri-food products “natural” and traditional. (Procopie & Bobe,
2008, p. 72).
We could say that the dynamics and the complexity of urban markets hinder its management as a
business unit. This aspect has to lead to an improvement of the logistic activities through customer
service, volume and structure of demand forecasts, information management, product handling,
processing of orders, transport management and storage areas (Dinu, 2008, p.5). Not in the least, in the
future, the markets have to develop Custom Activities Management oriented towards the identification,
selection, retention and development of relations with customers (Surcel & Bologa, 2008, p. 89).
Efficient management could only be achieved through a system of cooperation between relevant
decision makers, interest groups, NGOs and representatives of the consumers and of the small
producers. Another aspect that poses difficulties in the management of the markets is their lack of
specific boundaries. Visitors / buyers increasingly associate the market not only with the strictly
defined area where food selling facilities are located, but also with the surrounding area which includes
extensive parking facilities, rest and leisure facilities, catering, kiosks and retail stores with similar or
different purposes than of those located within the market. Thus, the adjacent area becomes an
expanding area. The units managing the markets, most often local authority subsidiaries, must be aware
that they cannot develop a modern space that ensures consumer safety and satisfaction without
consulting the consumers and the interest groups.
Some of the solutions suggested by the research findings were anticipated by government
representatives and local government markets, which admit that efforts should be focused on
implementing participatory planning methods for further development. Moreover, the development
approach must remain dynamic and encouraging of the constant desire to improve the additional
services provided to consumers.
