Distinction among market, public_market and marketplace

In this thread you can see the distinction among them.

Numbered stalls in a market

Marketplaces contain many stalls, often permanently numbered, each operated by a different seller. Please add a way of adding them. Jidanni (talk) 03:03, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Named sections of a market

A market might be divided into Section A, Section B, just like airports. Give a way of tagging these areas. Jidanni (talk) 03:05, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Street that becomes a daily market closed to traffic

Let's say every morning from 06:00 to 14:00 a three block long stretch of Main St. becomes totally filled with sellers occupying every inch of pavement.

At all other times it is just a regular Main St. with the usual car traffic.

How to tag? Jidanni (talk) 21:32, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

For the market, this can be detailed with
opening_hours=Mo-Su,PH 06:00-14:00
(or the actual opening hours).
For the stretch of street with traffic closed, use Conditional restrictions such as:
motor_vehicle:conditional=no @ (Mo-Su,PH 06:00-14:00)

Thanks. I started with this, but I suppose it doesn't actually get rendered on the map. Jidanni (talk) 07:44, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
It does get rendered on the map, with an icon and the area extent at high zoom. --Althio (talk) 08:25, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
I would add also note=* to explain the situation to other mappers Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 10:30, 17 July 2019 (UTC)


Let's say

  1. the north half of the marketplace is the "dry goods division"
  2. the south half of the marketplace is the "wet goods division"

or whatever totally different "worlds". How to map? It is all the same marketplace, under the same management, under the same giant roof. Jidanni (talk) 04:23, 27 October 2019 (UTC)

That's a good question! If there were different buildings with different names, I would consider using separate amenity=marketplace features, but if it's all one big marketplace with different sections for meat, vegetables, hardware and so on, then we need a new tag for each section. There isn't a standard way to design a tag like this yet, but when I proposed mapping camp pitches within a campground, most people voted for using tourism=camp_pitch inside of a tourism=camp_site feature. So I would suggest amenity=market_section or something similar, mapped within a single amenity=marketplace feature. --Jeisenbe (talk) 13:32, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Relation allowed ?

Hi, the page says no relation, though market place is sometime tagged as a relation and they are rendered on osm-carto style, see example here Is there a good reason to forbid to use it as a relation ?--Florimondable (talk) 19:56, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

The object which is linked above, relation 10231438, is a multipolygon. These are considered to be a type of area, just like closed ways which are used to map areas. The attribute "onRelation = yes" is only used for other types of relations which are not areas, such as route relations. --Jeisenbe (talk) 11:49, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

Bad Example

Hi, I just saw that the example for the amenity=marketplace is a marketplace called marché (french for market). However in it is clearly said that names should not be used as descriptions. Can anybody please put another example on the page or change the name to anything that is not just saying market (in any language) Best, Michael --Mfbehrens99 (talk) 13:51, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

Excuse my ignorance of foreign languages: Looks like there's no special name for the market (according to search results), so the "Marché" way 82571758 may have been intended as under Diar El Afia way 82571750. ---- Kovposch (talk) 16:40, 18 December 2020 (UTC)
If market has no name then name=* should not be used and noname=yes applied Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 11:15, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
Was thinking whether it is a proper name like Marché Diar El Afia (is this grammatically correct?), which needs further investigation. ---- Kovposch (talk) 13:23, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
