Trees could be one contributing factor to the success of a market. We visited one on Place Bourse and it was a plaza in front of the the stock exchange. The space was clearly too large for the market, which was designed to only occupy about 1/3-1/2 of the space (based on locations of pole anchors on the ground). Plus, there were no trees on the plaza.

Vendors at Bourse market stretched tarp between rows of standardized stalls.

At markets such as Maubert, Raspail or Monge, trees are a part of the market landscape.  Its canopy adds an interesting dappled light effect to the shade from ordinary tarp.
