Lesser Market

The Lesser Market of Gondolin was a market in the south of Gondolin smaller than the Great Market. During the Fall of Gondolin Turgon ordered Salgant to the Great Market to reinforce Glorfindel, but being deep in the council of Maeglin he tried to take his company, the House of the Harp, to the Lesser Market. But they rebelled from his orders, and therefore never came to this market.
