The price is determined by the availability of produce for sale and how much produce buyers demand for purchase, with the quality of the products on sale playing an important role.  

An important by-product of the market's trading system is the provision of established prices upon which trading, both through the market and outside the market system, can be based. Transactions are all handled via a smart card debit system provided by the market.
