The term agricultural marketing is composed of two words-agriculture and marketing. Agriculture, we can think about the soil, the forests, the sea, so it includes all the primary activities of production systems in relation to animal, plant, food production. But, generally, it is used to mean growing and/or raising crops and livestock. The study of agricultural marketing comprises all the operations, and the agencies conducting them, involved in the movement of farm-produced foods, raw materials and their derivatives, such as textiles, from the farms to the final consumers, and the effects of such operations on farmers, middlemen and consumers.

In our primer research a questionnaire was made by us. The topic of the questionnaire was the consumption of these local products and the knowledge about the common agricultural marketing. The main group of our research was the graduated people, we think, they have more information and income, so they attitude is positive for these products.

We have known, the most of the participants had heard about the agricultural marketing, but the main institute, AMC not yet. The problems with the local products – in the opinion of the participants are: higher price, less choice, no too comfortable shopping.
