Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, the Castle Town Market is found in the north of Hyrule Field. It is sectioned off by a drawbridge, which closes at night. Castle Town is the center of mini-games and shops while Link is a child; seven years into the future, Castle Town is destroyed and most businesses have moved to Kakariko Village. The town is extremely lively, with many inhabitants, and there is a large fountain in the center. There are also the Back Alleys.

The Minish Cap

Main article: Hyrule Town

Hyrule Town is once again a bustling town with many businesses in The Minish Cap, most of which open later in the game. It is also the place of the Picori Festival and home to the Town Picori. Many pivotal kinstone matches are with the residents of Hyrule Town, making almost every visit Link makes full of opportunity. Despite the fact that in the beginning of the game many buildings are closed or have yet to be built and a handful of merchants are missing, Link can match his way to a thriving metropolis and eventually gain access to every area as both his full and and Minish-sized self.

This area is also home to a few secrets, including the Power Bracelets, making it a beneficial area to explore thoroughly and often.
