Marsh-Catch

<meta />

When French-speaking changelings first arrived at Fort Détroit, they found – to their great surprise – that the region already possessed a well-stocked Goblin Market frequented by Native American changelings from many different tribes. The French fae called it le marché caché (“the hidden market”), but English tongues soon mangled the French pronunciation to “Marsh-Catch”.
Though it was held just on the other side of the Hedge from the sprawling open-air Eastern Market for much of the freehold’s history, Marsh-Catch followed the Spring Court to Windsor in the mid-Eighties so it could be closer to the few changelings in the region who still had the resources to purchase their wares and services. Just as mortals are constantly going to Windsor to buy what they can't get in the States (absinthe, Cuban rum and cigars, underage drinking, etc.), the fae of Detroit also cross the river to buy or barter whatever they can’t obtain in the mortal realm.

Like Eastern Market, Marsh-Catch still sells different types of things on different nights. Mondays are for weaponry, armor, Tokens, and Gewgaws (see Goblin Markets, pg. 21), while Tuesdays are for food and drink, Goblin Fruits, and Trifles. Jewelry, hedgespun garments and accessories, footwear and headgear, and mundane clothing are bought and sold on Wednesdays. Thursdays bring those who barter information and services (including transformations and second-hand destinies) rather than goods. Traders in slaves, servants, pets, and all manner of living creatures hawk their wares on Fridays. Saturdays bring esoterica and lost objects.

Somewhat ironically, the Market is always closed on the Sabbath.
