the outskirts of a small market town (DH15)

Definition

A town where a market – what a lot of people in the U.S. would probably think of as a farmer’s market – is held regularly. Several surrounding villages would be connected with a market town, so that farmers in the villages would go to the market town to buy and sell produce or livestock.
