History Edit

"A market provides a location to bring together buyers and sellers to trade. Ideally, prices are set by supply and demand. Markets were composed of stalls where vendors would sell their wares. Often people wouldn't pay with money, but would barter by offering a service in return for whatever they needed. As cities grew larger, stores replaced the open marketplaces, and money became a more common form of currency."
