The domestic markets were primarily the Byzantine rural markets that were organized around the exchange of the products of the country (wheat, wine and fruit)

Practicing trade was mandatory for farmers because the Byzantine tax system has always required the possession of cash. So farmers came to the markets with their surplus wheat. Buyers were either direct consumers (from monasteries and churches) or trader who then resold the wheat in Constantinople. There were also provincial market fairs where things that were not manufactured in the villages (such as textiles, ceramics, and metal instruments) were available. The most important market fairs were those of Ephesus and Thessalonica and took place during the celebrations of their patron saints.
