A car market is a market provided by a registered car market operator who does not own the secondhand vehicles which are displayed for sale. It is not an auction premises.

Vehicles displayed for sale at a car market cannot be owned by other licensed dealers.

Quite often, a car market will be used for other purposes (such as public parking) on non-normal trading days.
