One of the things that can affect the social-economic development of villages is the formation of a rural market. The purpose of this study is to investigate the social-economic factors affecting the need to create a rural market in the Bahar Hamedan. The method of this research is survey and the data collection tool is a researcher-made questionnaire. The statistical population of this study consists of residents of villages in the Bahar Hamedan, from which 450 people were selected as a sample size through multi-stage cluster sampling for interview.The results of this study showed that the establishment of a market for the sale of villagers products is essential from the perspective of villagers in the Bahar Hamedan.
