The marketplace was the social center of each Greek city. Citizens went there everyday to buy food. They also went to the market to meet their friends to discuss local politics and the latest news. City-states grew rich by taxing trade. So they encouraged trade by building new markets, with rooms nearby where bankers and money changers could work.
