The following is the results of your search for Market-place.
Market-place: Any place of public resort, and hence a public place or broad street
(Matthew 11:16; 20:3) as well as a forum or market-place proper, where goods
were exposed for sale, and where public assemblies and trials were
(Acts 16:19; 17:17) This word occurs in the Old Testament only in
(Ezekiel 27:13) In early times markets were held at the gates of cities,
where commodities were exposed for sale
(2 Kings 7:18) In large towns the
sale of particular articles seems to have been confined to certain
streets, as we may infer from such expressions as "the bakers'
(Jeremiah 37:21) and from the circumstance that in the time of
Josephus the valley between Mounts Zion and Moriah was called the
Tyropoeon or the "valley of the cheesemakers."
