Abstract

The Evolution of Urban Markets in Savoy. Continuity or Break in the Relation between Cities and the Surrounding Countryside? Is the apparent recrudescence of activity on. urban markets a sign of new types of links between cities and the surrounding countryside? A study of some markets in Savoy seems to show that modernization of vegetable production occurs on larger scale circuits, and that the increasing number of sellers of agricultural origin is directly linked to the pre-retirement behaviour of elderly farmers who live near urban areas and who still have no successors. The study also shows stability in the composition of social groups frequenting the market place, and the slight impact of fashionable ideas, such as ecology, on the market functions.
