Terminus liesjust below Tavick’s Market, and goods from across Khorvaire come in on lightning rail and are shipped directly up to the open market. This district is an excellent place to find clothes, crafts, and goods from the Five Nations and the younger kingdoms. Farmers from the surrounding countryside typically prefer to sell their goods in Tavick’s Market, as the Bazaar of Dura is dangerous and North Market is expensive. Most farmers come to market on Far and Sar each week, and these are excellent times to purchase produce and livestock. A market permit costs 1 sp. and the Sham Watch makes certain that merchants have their permits.
While the open market is the primary attraction in Tavick’s Market there are many permanent crafters, restaurants, and taverns scattered throughout the district.
