RPGs have a tradition of incorporating chains of minor quests that require the acquisition of a special item to give to a specific individual, thus obtaining another item that is desired by another individual.
In Animal Crossing, the Flea Market was an occasion whereby one might be able to acquire a special item of furniture in an Animal Neighbour's house that one had coveted for a long time.
In Rune Factory 3, the Flea Market combines chains of minor quests with the opportunity to obtain rare Seeds and Items.
You have to pay attention if you wish to maximise your Flea Market experience either in terms of profit or in terms of obtaining the best Items. In the first year, Seeds that otherwise are not sold anywhere are sold at extremely low prices at the
Flea Market. In some ways, it is similar to the special Festivals in ToT and Animal Parade. In Rune Factory 3, however, you can interact with Characters anywhere on the Map to obtain the option to buy or trade Items. Monica and Daria offer games of chance. The Rock-Paper-Scissors Game that Monica plays is a bit like the games that the Harvest Goddess plays in many Harvest Moon games.
If you wish to obtain a Golden Turnip, Ultimate Curry or Invinciroid, the Flea Market Festival represents a golden opportunity to do so. It is a fairly early opportunity to obtain more than one piece of Platinum as well as Emery Flower Seed and other rare Seeds.
Welcome to my Rune Factory 3 Site
Although HarvestMoonForever remains my primary site, you will find all my posts and Guides for Rune Factory 3 on this site. I created a site for Grand Bazaar in this manner and it has proven quite useful. The actual Guides as always will be published by IGN as well.
