Abstract: Fiji has a long tradition of urban municipal markets which are a very important part of the urban economy. These markets are dominated by women as vendors and their contribution is important in maintaining rural and urban livelihoods. What is not so well known and understood are the challenges that these women face as vendors in markets that are not provided with adequate facilities and services needed to support the selling of food crops, vegetables, fish and cooked foods that women normally sell.
