* Gazetteer of Markets and Fairs in England and Wales to 1516 [NetSERF Select]
"The Gazetteer is a catalogue of markets and fairs in medieval England and Wales. This is the first comprehensive national survey. The project worked systematically through a range of sources to provide as much information as possible about each market and fair, with background information on places where they were held. The Gazetteer is valuable to those interested in all periods, as the markets and fairs established during the Middle Ages formed the core of the later network."

* "Market Towns and the Countryside in Late Medieval England" by Christopher Dyer
"This study of the interactions between market towns and their surrounding countryside is inspired by David Farmer's work on agricultural marketing. Central place theories of 'spheres of influence' are applied to a number of small English towns for which there is evidence of commercial contacts in the period 1280-1520. A sample of towns is used, including a group of contiguous market centres in the west midlands."

* "Price-setting in English Borough Markets, 1349-1500" by R.H. Britnell
"This study, concentrating in particular on the sale of grain and fish, examines evidence of the way in which prices were determined in the market places of English boroughs in the later Middle Ages. It argues that public intervention, inspired by principles of Canon Law, was more active than has previously been supposed, and that free-bargaining between buyers and sellers was not allowed."

* "The Rise and Fall of Markets in Southeast England" by Mavis Mate
"This article discusses the rise and fall of markets in southeast England --- the counties of Kent, Surrey, and Sussex. A number of markets that were licensed do not appear to have actually come into being. A high density of markets in Kent supports the suggestion that the expansion of marketing resulted, in part, from landlessness and poverty."
