Dealing mainly in agricultural produce, they have linkages with growers all over the country and sometimes even beyond our borders. Strong bonds are forged with growers sometimes to the extent of pre-financing the farms. They have the first refusal with their suppliers and it's their leavings that are offered others.Then there is the phenomenon of "market queens"- they are the capitalists of the trade in fresh produce. They maintain a network of agents in all important buying centres, and are immediately informed of bargain prices. They receive all new sellers into markets and determined the mark-ups in their specific sections. There is also an aspect of welfare in their functions and oversee the well-being of their "subjects". They may determine which bulk transporter's wares may be accepted into their section. In brief, they have executive oversight.
