Columns along both sides of the grand street created roofed porticoes (entrances to the buildings and small shops) and were paved with mosaics. The shops along the street formed the "lower market". One of the stones has an engraving of a seven-branched candelabrum, a Jewish symbol.

A large public building (40 x 60M) is located on the north side of the intersection of the Cardo and Decumanus streets. It may have been the city's market (agora). According to the Talmud , there were two major markets: in lower Zippori (maybe this building) and in upper Zippori (up the hill). The center is a courtyard with colorful mosaics with geometric patterns and animals.
