Assunto:  Market place = feira, mercado ou supermercado?
 
Mensagem: 

Marketplace in that context could be mercado or feira, but certainly not supermercado. 

 

Although at least two translations of the phrase are possible, I'd go with "Desmond vende coisas de um carrinho no mercado..."  In other words, Desmond is a very minor seller of goods or produce in the market who does not even have a stall or booth.
