Abstract

It is argued that the market-area structure within the typical model of an urban system does not conform satisfactorily to the pattern customarily observed. The market-area structure of the standard model of a central place system is modified by applying two additional frameworks: the economic law of market areas and the law of retail gravitation. Each application results in a more relistic pattern of market areas, while preserving the hierarchical structure of the central place system
