In the literature concerning the construction of Nested Markets (NM), the issues of labour and the role of waged workers appear understudied. This article aims at contributing to this debate by focusing on Southern Italy’s areas of intensive agriculture, where the issue of the exploitation of migrant labour is compelling. Through the theoretical lens of NM, two experiences of alternative agriculture are analyzed: such experiences involve peasants, mi- grant and native workers, and activists; the construction of the NM has been central for the experimentation of new forms of agricultural labour organization, which can offer an alterna- tive to migrant labour exploitation. The article focuses on two main issues. First, it shows how migrant and native waged labourers have been among the promoters of such NMs, and role migrant and native waged labourers have been among the promoters of such NMs, and role played by the issue of labour in such construction. Second, it describe to what extent such experiences have fostered processes of endogenous rural development. The empirical material has been collected by the authors during their active participation in such projects.
Keywords: Migrant labour; labour exploitation; alternative agriculture; nested market.
