Rillian here with another exciting episode of Blocky Blueprints, a series to show you new and interesting ways to build your world. This episode will bring you three different things that you can use to help shape your marketplace, but by all means should not be used as the sole creations: we'll be featuring the stall, the tent, and the pavilion! Let's get to it.
Style 1: The Stall:
The market stall is what a lot of people think of when they imagine medieval marketplaces. They're quick, easy to set up both in the real world and in Minecraft, and they're generally put up, used for the day, and then broken down to use again another time. Market stalls are usually used for smaller things, like flowers, or small materials for sale.
I started with the simple layout. Small, as you can see:
I added the support beams to hold up the shade (Minecraft: Fences), as well as a place for the seller to get into his stall. This view is from the back of the stall:
I added the canvas shade (Minecraft: Wool), and here we have the finished market stall:
Style 2: The Tent:
The tent is a bit bigger, but is pretty easy to set up and take down after the market day is over. Here, you'll sell bigger wares, almost like a portable shop. You might see armor and weaponry being sold here, as well as melons, other foods, breads, baked goods, or other things too large to carry in a small market stall.
Again, I started with the layout. I also added crates in the front (Minecraft; Wooden Planks):
I built up the tent, and added weak siding (Minecraft: Logs and Fences):
Here's the start of the tent roof:
And we now have the finished tent:
Style 3: The Pavilion:
Okay, the largest of the three in this episode is the pavilion. It's massive, and will take some time to set up and take down. Thus, this will be used for grand fairs that will last an entire weekend or more. If the city is wealthy enough, they may have a permanent market in which this may be set up in the middle.
Here's the layout:
I built it up a bit and added fences. Ignore the ones out on the outside of the corners of the tent. I later took those out:
Here's the start of the pavilion roof:
Here's the large, airy pavilion roof (I didn't show the construction as it was complicated, and I'm not an expert on conical roof shape building):
Then from each corner, I added these large support canvas things (Minecraft: Wool) that you might see keeping the structure standing tall and beautiful:
Thank you for reading another episode of Blocky Blueprints. I hope you got some ideas for how to build your marketplace or bazaar. Remember that these are in no way a guide telling you exactly how you should do something. You should take inspiration from it, and apply your own twists. Thus I'd love to see your marketplaces, or criticism, praise or any other questions or concerns in the comments below; you can also PM me for anything you want to talk to me about.

Rillian. remember I said in one of your tutorials that there was a windmill(probably you did not see it)? I saw the same thing again in this post! Are your builds built in the same place?! P.S I think your answer is yes. Because i saw the the blacksmith from one of your tutorials.
