Sheila Dillon discusses markets.
Nothing beats the bustle and the street cries of a market. But with many of our local food markets in decline, The Food Programme wonders if they may soon disappear from our cities our towns? Sheila Dillon visits Bradford to discover the regenerative power of market life.

Manuel Rippoli, President of La Boqueria's stallholders' association expresses his enthusiasm about the recent twinning of Borough Market with La Boqueria in Barcelona.

Sheila talks to Louis from Oleum Flumen, one of the Spanish traders invited to set up a stall along with Jordi Toira i Mabilon, Francesc Puigdomenech Torras and Oscar Uribe from Barcelona 's Boqueria market.

In 2001 Sheila spoke to Mimi Rivington of the National Market Traders' Federation about the difficulties facing those working in the industry.

We visit Queen's Market in Newham with local resident Claire Peasnall.

Peter Gott, market trader and farmer discusses what makes a successful market.

Sheila talks to Malcolm Veigas, Head of Services for Bradford markets, about how the council is putting markets at the heart of its urban regeneration project. Together they visit the Oastler Shopping Centre. Nirmal Bassi, Markets, Events and Projects Manager for Bradford Council explains how they're planning to bring younger and higher spending customers into the city's markets.

Sheila is joined in the studio by chartered surveyor, Nikolaj Dockree who works for a property developer and Krys Zasada, markets manager at Manchester City Council.
