This study on the onion market investigates how one agricultural commodity market works and the ways in which social relationships govern access to the market in terms of information, credit , trading costs, returns and risks. As becomes clear there are powerful actors within the onion value chain who manipulate prices and costs to their advantage, concentrating power within the market which limits access to small traders and farmers.
