The Ferengi Sacred Marketplace (also the Great Marketplace) was located on Ferenginar in the capital city. It housed several important government buildings, including the Tower of Commerce. The Marketplace was central to the conduct of Ferengi business and several traditional rites, including criminal punishments.

Criminals and other deviants were often thrown from the spire of the Tower and landed in the Marketplace. Crowds gathered to watch the execution and placed wagers on where the victims would land. Lesser crimes were punished with public humiliation, including being hanged in the marketplace by the lobes. (DS9: "Family Business", "Bar Association")

Quark made a pilgrimage to the Great Marketplace in 2372. (DS9: "Body Parts")

In the first draft script of "Body Parts", Quark had "cleaned up some old contracts", rather than having made a pilgrimage to the Great Marketplace.
