    It is understandable, but I have two nit-picks. Put a comma between.narrow and covered. Also, say "for sale". "On sale" isn't wrong, but it could be construed as meaning sold at a discount.

    To me I can't understand what you wrote. Can you write it again but in another form then maybe I can help you

    Oh, since covered refers to the passageway, it is a compound adjective and should have a hyphen: covered-passageway. You could also rewrite it as "The market in the narrow, covered passageway..." 5hat's a little less awkward.
