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.

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.
