The present study was designed to assess the constraints affecting market performance of selected vegetables: namely potato, egg plant, pointed gourd, okra, aroid and red amaranth. Total 100 respondents were randomly selected from two upazilas- Bogra sadar and shibgonj of Bogra district. Both tabular and quantitative analyses were conducted to achieve the objectives of the study. Spread values of vegetables grower to consumer were almost doubled. The average spread value change of vegetable at town market was 19.67 % higher than village market. The major findings of the study revealed that production of all the selected vegetables were profitable but respondents faced constraints due to improper marketing systems. Growers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers of vegetable put first priority accordingly on low market price, irregular supply by growers, high wholesale market price and high retail market price. All the respondents were put emphasis on to stretch out constraints early and proper steps should ensure by government to minimize all the risk.
