Ever since the evolution of various economic reforms in Nigeria, that led to the abolition of commodity Boards and the introduction of free market pricing policy the sudden rush to cocoa trade due to higher pricing for cocoa led to increased number of people buying and marketing cocoa. As a result of this, cocoa farmers now have various alternatives channels for selling their produce. This study identies the various market channels available, the frequency of patronage of each market channel and factors influencing the farmers’ choice of market channel for their produce. It shows that the coca farmers in Ila Local Government Area of Osun State, Nigeria choose their market channels based on time and mode of payment, the price of the product, the distance from the farm, transportation costs, and the grading of the product.
