Farmers and traders had to continue to adapt so they could supply enough produce to meet demand.
Mid 1700’s the market place in Sheffield had sprawls of shops and stalls, surrounded by High Street, Swine Market, Bullstake and King Street. Stalls may also have spread beyond the Market Place stretching up High Street to Church Gates. Farmer’s wives would come to the market with baskets of butter and eggs which they would sell standing around the Market Cross.
butchers were among the first to be affected by the pressure for change. The problems and nuisance caused by the increased number of animals being driven into the town centre promoted local inhabitants to petition the owner of the markets, Charles Howard the Earl of Surrey, to provide them with a larger market place with better access for animals, carts and pedestrians.
1784 – An Act of Parliament was passed to enlarge the Market Place
1786 – A new market hall, Fitzalan Market, was built on site of the old market and opened on 31 August.

Globalization is always occuring, even more so with every generation born. This article gives the example of how you can see the effects of globalization even in something like a cafe- a elderly Muslim women is wearing a headscarf, trying to avoid the television, her son is wearing a very profane shirt and seems mesmorized by Beyonce and MTV, while his wife is trying to control their son and somehow stays glued to her iPhone. This situation would be very different in different time periods of history, had they been in the Middle East, and even in different parts of America.
