New Market in the Katapeshi town of Solku is the largest market in town where most visiting traders, but also local vendors, set up their stalls. In fact the "New Market" is at least 1,000 years old and back then was outside the town walls. Woven awnings protect buyers and sellers from the sun and the air if full of the smell of roasting meats, vegetables and nuts. A lot of musicians and performers entertain the crowd. All kind of goods from across Garund and Avistan are available here, from Osirian cotton to Kibwe diamonds to Chelish wine. Pickpockets and beggars are omnipresent at New Market, organized by the halfling Beza Duri, but the town guards ensure the market is relatively safe.
