The Tea Supplier, Fruit Supplier, Celadon Merchant, and Shandong Merchant all allow you to place resources on market spaces. Two things were not clear to us:
1. Do the resources come from the player's supply or the general supply?
From the player's personal supply.
2. Can you place on any free space or do you have to place on the leftmost free space on the markets that are normally filled this way?
You have to place on the leftmost free space on the markets , as normally rules.
