The rule doesn't mention the limit about how many trading posts can be placed in the same Market tile, but there are 3 circles on every Market tiles(seems to limit the number of trading posts).

If there no limit or only 3 trading posts can be placed on a Market tile?

The rules do state that each market tile can have one trading post from each player (one of each colour). I agree though that the artwork is misleading.

You're right! I didn't related this description to the limit, thanks!

so a location can have 4 outposts on it, despite what the artwork indicates?

Pardon the confusing graphic - there can be 4 unique trade posts on a tile.

Just got the game yesterday, and played it with 4 people. It was confusing that there was only 3 spaces on the tile, so we decided that there should be only 3 buildings allowed. I think it gave the game a racing aspect and sort of limited the upgrades and points you can get from placing all of your buildings. Still, it was a viable tactic to place out all of them to get points and upgrades, while the others are hard at work grabbing the VP tiles from ports.
