A market is a regular gathering of people for the purchase and sale of provisions, livestock, and other commodities. Market supply is usually done manually where people or farmers who produce commodities transport them to town or market areas on lorries and sell them to the market vendors. They are not aware of the demand for that particular commodity before they transport it to the market. These farmers/ suppliers also often sell their commodities to only specific markets in one or two districts of the country leading to a scarcity in other areas. This has led to the unstable prices of agricultural products in the country. This study concerns the development of an automated Market Supply System which acts as an efficient and cheap middleman between the market vendors and the farmers (suppliers). The market suppliers will be able to have their own panel where they add the commodities, the quantity, their prices, their contact information and their address. The market vendors (buyers) will have their own panel for viewing the commodities that are being sold by the suppliers and contact them in case they need to purchase those agricultural commodities. The system will also provide market statistics which will be used by both the suppliers and buyers to make decisions regarding the prices of commodities and where to supply them.
