There is no card called "Farmer's Market". It's "Farmers' Market". There are lots of farmers.

Perhaps a family with the last name Farmer.

There is no card called "Farmer's Market". It's "Farmers' Market". There are lots of farmers.
I was surprised when I did the research there, and think this may be a thing that is gradually changing in the language. When I researched Worker's Village, I went with Worker's over Workers' or Workers; it gets used all three ways. Without additional research now I bet Farmer's Market is the original term, and it was Farmer's because what you are talking about is a farmer's market. A market for farmers is a farmer's market. But people have gotten hung up on, wait there are multiple farmers, I don't want to look like some idiot who doesn't understand apostrophes. So over time it has switched to farmers' market. And some people dodge the issue with farmers market, or have just run out of apostrophes.

You can quickly see it all three ways with a GIS for "farmers market sign" without quotes.

Given how well people use apostrophes and quotation marks, I wouldn't be surprised to see any of the following:

"Farmer's" Market
Farmers' "Market"
Farmers Marke't

Farmers' Market: a market belonging to multiple farmers
Farmer's Market: where you go to buy farming equipment
Farmers Market: where you go to buy farmers

"Farmer's Market"
"F. Market"
"Farmers' M."
"FarmMark"
"Market of Farmers"
"That new Farming card in Empires"
"That new Market in Empires"

But that's frequency modulation.

Farmers's Market.  Easy.

But we don't know it's not a Farmers Market.  There's only one stand you can see all of in the art, and there is a guy in there, and maybe he's the one for sale and the fruit is just for display.

At least there isn't a Dominion card called Joneses' Market.
