This download is part of the Medieval Creator Challenge
At the local market all kinds of food stuffs, clay wares, cloth, and pretty trinkets are for sale. Sims also come to hear the latest gossip or to visit the little brewery where they can get their harvest turned into delicious nectar. Some sims, of course, also work here selling food and books.

This community lot has been created as a replacement for two EA rabbitholes. The grocery store and the book shop are concealed in the basement level of the lot and still accessible for sims who work there or want to buy things. But on the topside there's a bustling marked place instead of contemporary buildings.

The sheds and houses surrounding the market are not fully fitted for living, since this is a community lot. But they contain various activities that sims can engage in. Such as going to the toilet, chess, reading, nectar brewing, etc.

The lot has been tested and works fine in my game.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Really good idea putting the rabbitholes down there!

This is awesome!! Thank you so much for not using any cc! I only download houses without any or only some cc. And as we can see with yours it looks lovely even without custom content.

You never know what’s comin’ for ya.

himawara106, with TS2 I never managed to make a cc free lot. But thanks to the style tool a little goes a long way. So I'm very proud that I finally succeeded and I'll try to keep to no cc uploads in the future..

And thanks for all the comments folks - I'm glad this is useful and you enjoy it :D
