Markets (synonyms: marketplace; bazaar, souk; fictionalized examples: Grand Street Market, the Bizarre Bazaar) are areas where vendors and small shops sell and buy goods. These are locations to find food, spices, fish, fruits & vegetables, meat, curiosities, magical items, illegal weapons, and more. In game-oriented worlds these may be areas for players to buy and sell game items. Markets may be open-air, enclosed, hidden, illegal (black markets), or digital. They may be home to street vendors, pickpockets, traders, and shoppers.
When designing markets for your world, consider what is being sold, where those goods come from and the trade routes being utilized, and the general layout of the marketplace.
