Despite the increased recognition of the significance of market dynamics of homestead
forestry, research on the subject has remained strikingly limited. This research focuses on selected
aspects of marketing of homestead forestry products in two areas (Habilashdip and Chunati
Unions) in the district of Chittagong. The study mainly probes into principal actors in the market,
channel of marketing (for example grower-middlemen, middlemen-consumer etc.) the trends on
domestic consumption and sale of homestead agroforestry products, and the major problems (for
example absence of cooperative, poor storage facility, middlemen dependency) associated with
marketing. A number of measures for better marketing of homestead agroforestry products have
been suggested. The article ends with an exhortation for increased research on marketing of
homestead forestry.
