Traders were segmented into two groups in the basis of their sampling list origin: a first group composed of those drawn from the producers’ or retailers’ lists, and a second group composed by traders drawn from the local authority’s list. Results indicated that the former group is mainly composed of young and inexperienced traders, in contrast to the second group which is composed of aged and experienced traders. Traders groups’ constraints analysis showed that the two groups of traders are experiencing different constraints, especially the young and inexperienced traders who cited a large number of problems. These results highlight the importance of the sampling source.
