wheres the market stalls etc.?

is there a difference between a town/city square and a market square? i think there is.

for example trafalgar square couldn't be a market square but these images just look like a trafalgar equivelant.

Brussels: Grand Place / Grote Markt.
Used to be the main market square in Brussels. Now there's a daily flower market and it's Brussels' main square.

^ Fantastic. Such things are really rare to find in the United States.
Quincy Market in Boston pops up in my mind, too.

In the 17th century they build the old city hall and belfry tower in the middle of the square. Spliting the market up in the Groen markt(green market where the farmers selled there products) and grote markt(Great market).
