Bazaar (Harvest Moon: Grand Bazaar)

The bazaar happens once a week on Saturday. If there is an event (festival, etc.) on Saturday, it'll get pushed to Sunday. You can buy things as well as sell items.

How the Bazaar Works[edit]

The mayor will take you to the bazaar the first time. You start out with three spaces to sell things on and after selecting which items you would like to sell (You can place stacks of items) you wait for potential customers to walk by. You can also ring your bell with the B button to attract people to your stall. Once you've got a nibble, the person will tell you how many of a particular item they would like to buy. You then press A a certain number of times coinciding to the amount of objects they want to buy, and you've made your sale! After all three items have sold, you can put more up.

Friends and other characters may walk by and ask to buy something... a little text menu will come up with choices. There are lost children, chatty old men and even a young lady who's lost her glasses. On top of this, marriage candidates or either gender could walk by and stop to chat. By choosing the correct answer, you can increase their FP/LP by a little. Being a benevolent and perceptive shopkeeper will help benefit your store by making it even more popular.

You can also walk about and purchase things from other stalls. This is where the majority of your in-game purchases will be.

The next morning when you step out of your house, you will be invited to see who was the top three sellers of the bazaar. Scoring in the top three will get you a nice prize and get you closer to upgrading the Bazaar.
