Noun: A portmanteau of market. This word abomination is made even worse when lengthened into marqueta. Why this is preferable to the word mercado, is beyond us? Either way, it sounds silly because it is silly.

EX: “Voy a ir al marque para comprar Jell-O para mi piscina.”

TR: “I am going to the market to buy Jell-O for my pool.”

EX: “Yo estoy triste. La marqueta no tenia comida de gato. ¡Es delicioso!”

TR: “I am sad. The market was out of cat food. It’s delicious!”
