The network research of the local food markets participants is based on author’s methodology. At the same time, the methodology is considered generally as the form of knowledge and self-knowledge provided by three expressed aspects: world outlook, cognitive, technological. In general the methodology represents the multi-level system of receipt of converting and statement of knowledge about any object. Notice that it is about methodology of a specific research, but not about methodology as the area of knowledge which study means, prerequisites and the principles of the organization of cognitive and practical and reformative activity. In article, allowing equivalence of methodology and a method and considering that the methodology represents a peculiar method which establishes the relation between the theory and practice, we will consider author’s understanding of management of network development of participants of the local food markets, believing that the world outlook part of methodology (which is in focus of our attention) isn’t subject to the strict proof, only argumentations of an author’s line item. The world outlook aspect influences statement of a research problem and interpretation of results. World outlook aspects of methodology are dualistic as they represent unity objective and subjective. We suggest to understand set of the methods allowing to synthesize theoretical views on a problem of management of network development as a method of regulation and activization of opportunities, resources and knowledge of the subjects of the local food market showing interest in development of regional economy and showing responsible behavior taking into account the situation determined from a line item “role status” as world outlook aspect of methodology of the considered area of a research. The approaches created during formation and development of the classical economic theory, the neoinstitutional economic theory, network theories and digital economy became theoretical basis of a research namely: system, resource, institutional, network, evolutionary, behavioural approaches. Research methods: cognitive modeling, method of analogies, abstract and logical method, system approach.
