Measure Economic Performance

A Toolkit for Market Operators

 

"Markets are part of the historical fabric of our communities but have an important role in their future. 
Like our town centres and high streets, they must justify their position in today’s high streets."
Marcus Jones MP, Minister for Town Centres, High Streets and Markets

 

 

 

ROI Team was commissioned by NABMA and the Department for Communities and Local Government to evaluate the economic contribution of markets.

 

Part of the work was to carry out in-depth research at six markets across the UK. At each of these markets, economic performance was measured using four methods:

 

  1. Analysis of market footfall
  2. Survey of Market Customers
  3. Depth Interviews with Market Traders
  4. Interview with Market Manager or Markets Office

 Every market in the UK should be able to demonstrate its economic value to the communities that it serves.

 

NABMA and the NMTF encourage market operators to carry out their own economic assessment using the templates below (all PDF, around 1.2MB):
