Subrosia Market is a shop in Oracle of Seasons. Located at very center of Subrosia in Subrosia Village, it is the only store in the entire subterranean world. The Market's exterior is designed to resemble a red-robed Subrosian.
In order to reach Poison Moth's Lair, Link must obtain the Ribbon from the Market to go on a date with Rosa, who has the key to the Summer Tower at the Temple of Seasons. The Market trades the Ribbon for a Star-Shaped Ore, which lays buried in the sands of the Subrosia Seaside.
Wares and Pricing
Subrosia Market employs a unique trade system to sell its wares. Depending on the item, the shop owner will either sell for Ore Chunks, the standard Subrosian currency, or trade for Mystical Seeds along with (or instead of) Ore Chunks. Exceptions are the Ribbon and the Big Bomb Bag. In addition, the Market will exchange certain Mystical Seeds for Ore Chunks and vice-versa.
More than half of the items sold at the Market are foreign to its Subrosian salesman. He is consequently unaware of their actual name and purpose. Hearts are displayed upside down and sold as peaches; a Heart Container is sold as a "Rare Peach Stone." Gasha Seeds, of which the market has an infinite supply, are referred to as "Silver Seeds." A single Wooden Shield is sold as a cutting board. The salesman trades a Member's Card for a mere five Ore Chunks, not knowing if it has any purpose at all. According to a Subrosian standing south of the Market, the foreign wares were likely obtained from the Temple of Seasons when it fell from Holodrum.
A Big Bomb Bag, represented by a Red Bomb, is sold for 50 Ore Chunks and 10 Bombs. Upon purchasing it, the shop owner intructs Link to lift the bomb. It explodes harmlessly in his hands, increasing his bomb capacity by 20.
Subrosia Market sells four increasingly expensive Magic Rings. They cost 30, 40, 50, and 70 Ore Chunks respectively.

Order of Sale
Subrosia Market has a total of 11 different wares. However, it has only enough room to sell five at a time. Items are thus sold in a certain order.
The five items for sale at any given time are lined up on the floor against the western wall. Each of the Market's 11 total wares are assigned a specific tile on the floor. Once an item sells out and a tile is freed, the next item assigned to that tile appears for sale upon Link's next visit. The order in which the wares are sold, from northernmost to southernmost tile, is as follows:
|Ribbon||Big Bomb Bag||Gasha Seeds|
|Piece of Heart||Magic Ring ×4||Ember Seeds|
|Wooden Shield||Pegasus Seeds||--|
|Member's Card||Ore Chunks||--|
Subrosia Market only sells one Wooden Shield and does not sell stronger shields. Pegasus Seeds thus become available when Link either buys the shield obtains the Iron Shield.
The Market has an unlimited supply of Gasha Seeds, Ember Seeds, Pegasus Seeds, Hearts, and Ore Chunks to trade.
- Despite Ore Chunks being sold in tens, the Market displays a blue Ore Chunk (value of 1) rather than a red one (value of 10).
- If Link buys all five wares for sale in one visit, the shopkeeper brusquely tells him to go home.
