Market was made in response to the conflicts in the Balkans, particularly those in Bosnia, where ethnic cleansing and displacement of civilians was commonplace. The title refers to a well-known event in which a central market in Sarajevo was shelled and the victims themselves were subsequently accused as the perpetrators.
