Merchant Row was a marketplace avenue on the Outer Rim world of Batuu, located within the boundaries of Black Spire Outpost. The partially covered street was home to several local retail stores, including Black Spire Outfitters, The Jewels of Bith, and Toydarian Toymaker. At one end of Merchant Row sat Ronto Roasters, a quick-service eatery, while the snackfood stand called Kat Saka's Kettle operated next door. Visitors to the area could also purchase a variety of pets or other small animals from Merchant Row's Creature Stall. Remex Io of Kendoh's crew once ran through the marketplace trying to evade members of the 709th Legion in a chase/lightfight when they learned his presence via a tip, with him narrowly evading them by sending them on a wild Bantha chase to the Batuu spaceport, although he ended up ambushed and threatened by Varg shortly afterward.
Behind the scenesEdit
Merchant Row was named on one of a set of trading cards available at Disney's December 16, 2017 "Galactic Nights" session, which covered locations for the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge attraction. It shared a card with Docking Bay 9, which, like other cards, possessed a portion of an Aurebesh poem on the border. That card's section read "A BEACON FOR DRIFTERS". According to the Walt Disney World news page, Merchant Row would house many shops, including a toy shop that was unveiled earlier.
On May 24, 2019, the Disneyland website and mobile app updated park maps to include Galaxy's Edge. The updated park maps confirmed that the location of the Merchant Row shops were not as close to Docking Bay 9 as the trading cards suggested.
