The Hobo Marketplace Table

The purpose of this table is to make The Hobo Marketplace in Hobopolis a little easier to navigate. Most items in the marketplace require hobo nickels to purchase. Navigating the marketplace in-game usually requires a collection of hobo codes.

Food Court

Food and booze may be purchased at the market; these are consumed immediately (i.e., they do not go into your inventory). For any given adventurer in the dungeon, a maximum of one food item and one booze item can be purchased during a single dungeon instance.
