In Canada, Extra Foods Flyer are originally intended for the sale of local productions from gardens, farms, orchards and various products, generally food and craft, the quantity of which is too small or too irregular to be marketable. on a national level. Local farm or artisanal production can offer a guarantee of quality, while direct sale, without elaborate packaging, without transport and without intermediaries, allows a fair valuation of the fruit of his labor for the producer or for the craftsman as well as a attractive price for the buyer. However, free competition also allows traders to resell foreign imported products in these same markets.
Little visual difference between farmer-producers and traders. The latter are often identified by the diversity, exoticism (oranges, bananas, avocado, pineapple, etc.) and the disrespect of the seasons (tomatoes in spring, in winter) of their merchandise.
To shield their products from this phenomenon and enhance their quality, farmers have created so-called “producers” markets closed to these traders. Among these restrictive markets, one, that of the hamlet of Extra Foods Flyers Montredon, is closely linked to the struggle of Larzac and to farmers and sympathizers involved in opposition to the World Trade Organization (WTO). It was initiated in 19882 by an activist association made up of holidaymakers and farmers, including Joseph Bové.
