What is the perceived benefit of using "beds" in a market garden? I don't know any market gardeners in my area that plant into beds.

If all that root mass is grass/pasture, then killing the topgrowth will cause the roots to decompose in place in the soil. After putting down mulch I would cover the whole area with a tarp, this will further suppress any existing perennials and help the mulch to be decomposed into you soil faster.
