Markets have been in England, UK since 1066 AD, to provide a means of trade & barter. Markets were originally for local trading.
Markets provide outlets to the local craftsmen, to travelling chapman or pedlars, and to householders and small farmers, where beasts and surplus products could be sold and purchased.
