When one starts an oriental island you can begin placing Oriental Market Buildings, which function like the Occidental Small market building. The biggest difference I can tell is that the Oriental Market Building costs more and you can't upgrade it.

What is the difference between the two?

When do you use one or the other?

I wouldn't say it functions just like a Small market building, as it have 3 carts, instead of 1. It functions almost exactly as the Large market building, but more cost efficient.

As you can see from this table, the Oriental market building has a few advantages against the Large market building:

  • Lower building cost (the Large market building also needs stone and glass), and
  • Lower maintenance cost (25 instead of 30)

I would recommend using the Oriental market building, when you are in need of more than 1 cart, as it is cheaper to build, than upgrading the small market building.
