Access to guaranteed markets means producers will always have a guaranteed price for their crops. These markets will always buy resources at guaranteed prices, therefore the producers can produce as much food as they want.

An example of policies for these markets is the CAP (Common Agricultural Policy), where EU farmers are allowed to prodduce as much as they want as they will be given a guaranteed price for their crops. This will cause a large surplus of food in the country, which consequently drops the global food prices. In developing countries such as the countries in Africa, the price of the global food will be cheaper than that of the local farmers, meaning the local farmers will lose out since no one buys their crops. This will cause a decrease in the local productivity and therefore a global imbalance as fewer farmers will produce their crops in their own country, instead buying cheap food produced by EU farmers.
