The Great Market was a large market on the east side of Gondolin mentioned in the Fall of Gondolin. It was defended by Glorfindel and the House of the Golden Flower upon the sack of the city, and was burned there. After the rebellious House of the Harp threw themselves on the orcs, they were pushed back to this market, where a Fire-drake consumed many of them.
