    What have you tried? Have you done any research? Have you hit any specific roadblocks? Right now this question reads like you haven't bothered to search. See: Reading and Writing XML Using the DOM

    A quick search on the xml tag, sorted by votes, provides good learning material, such as Difficulty Parsing XML Sep 22 '16 at 13:48

I think you will find everything you need to accomplish the task at hand in the Apex Developer Guide documentation: Reading and Writing XML Using the DOM. You can use the Dom.Document class to do the heavy lifting. This would also be a good time to define some inner classes to do your data processing. Something like:

public class SupplyResult
    final String marketId;
    final List<SupplyMember> members;
    public SupplyResult(String xml)
        Dom.Document doc = new Dom.Document();

        //further processing
public class SupplyMember
    final Integer quantity, inStock;
    final String sellerSKU;
    public Supply(Dom.XmlNode node)
        quantity = Integer.valueOf(node.getChildElement('Quantity', null).getText());
        // etc

It will be a better learning experience if you fill in the gaps above instead of having me provide every step. It should be straightforward. I only omitted eight lines of code (though you could do it with fewer if you were so inclined).
