Abstract: The proper marketing strategies for agricultural commodities can stimulate production and also reduce fluctuation in the output prices. Marketing infrastructure like scientific storage should be accessible to farmers not only to reduce post-harvest losses but also to even out price fluctuations. In this context a study was conducted with the objective to assess the Performance of Regulated Markets in Tamil Nadu. It was found that there was no adequate man power to manage and execute the RM functions. Many of the traders were reluctant in participating in the Regulated Markets as immediate payment to farmers is insisted by the administration. More storage warehouse is needed for specific crops like Turmeric. In case of pledge loan, it is felt by the farmer that, as the interest rate is high it needs to be reduced. Strengthening of infrastructural facilities like extending warehouse size, repairing the existing warehouses, drying yard, provision of adequate donnages and platform and Employing adequate staff to execute and to look after the requirements of the farmers and traders in specific Regulated Markets will enhance the performance of the Regulated Markets.
