The problem of food deserts became a study object of more fields in the last decennium. This paper concentrates on the identification possibilities of food deserts by the means of accessibility measures of supermarkets and hypermarkets by the application of geographical information systems (GIS). The identification basis was presented by eight diverse accessibility measures analysed in the public transport network. Accessibility measures proved to be an appropriate analytical tool for food deserts identification. However, their selection must correspond to the specified targets considering the absence of a complex accessibility measure.
