A place that provides your inhabitants with all the necessities of daily life.

Marketplace is the first basic need of your Farmer and Worker population.

The Marketplace becomes obsolete for residences at the Artisan tier of population and above. Likely since residences at the higher tier have stores on their ground floor for people to buy their daily groceries.

In both Europe and South America, the marketplace costs 500 coins and 10 timber, every minute it costs 20 coins of maintenance, its size is 5x6 tiles. As every public building it has a limited range which is based on the street distance between the affected building and the marketplace. Its full range (dark green) is 33 tiles for dirt roads and 49 for paved streets. When farmers, workers, jornaleros or obreros residences are in the full range of the marketplace, each of them will gain 5 inhabitants. Its max range (light green) is 68 tiles for dirt roads and 101 for paved streets. When they are outside of the full range but inside the max range they will gain less inhabitants based on the street distance from the marketplace.

An interesting note, is that while this is their first basic need, it is not necessary to always have a market in range. Once you satisfy the need for at least 1 more basic good, a market could be removed and the house will not become abandoned as they would in Anno 1404. You will lose any population that is gained from having access, but you will not lose the house itself.

Needs overview

Marketplaces provide the overview of all your population's needs based on goods. You can switch between every tier to see the needs only for one tier, or for several tiers at once. Needs bars indicate how well certain needs are fulfilled. Hovering over a need will let you know how many tons of corresponding goods there are in the storage of your island.
